Step away from the machine!

Yep! Yesterday was one of those days! 
I was looking forward to my "spiderman quilting" when, everything that could go wrong, did! 
The metallic thread kept breaking. "Somebody" really cute kept interrupting me and then finally, I jammed the machine. ARG! My hubby was so nice to help me take things apart to fix it. But I think I need to raise my presser foot a bit to accomidate for the thickness of the quilt??
To say the least, my grand guy is really excited about his birthday quilt and 
was pretty disappointed to not watch meme work on it.
With that said, I don't like to be watched as I quilt. LOL!!  I think it will be interesting how much sewing I'm going to get done after I finish this quilt and the baby quilt for our little due in November,  as he and our pregnant daughter will be staying with us for about six weeks as they await for their house to sell. (Insert joyful emoji!) I'm really looking forward to having them stay with us, as my husband and I haven't lived near family for atleast seven years and with Fall in the air, we are looking forward to the festivities of apple picking, hay rides, pumpkin farms and trick or treating. 
Plus, as empty nesters, it's wierd to have a full refrigerator once again.

I specialize in edge to edge pantographs with over 100 designs to choose from.

  1. I anxious to see it quilted, how heavy with the quilting be for the web? Since the metallic thread is so thin and "yes" breaks a lot.

  2. Oh, how I hate sewing days when everything that can go wrong, does. I am sure you will have that cool Spiderman quilt quilted before you know it. How wonderful to have your daughter and SIL living with you for a little while. You will all have the best time!

  3. Your little grand guy is so adorable in this picture. I hope your next attempt at the quilting machine is a success. I look forward to seeing the finish.

    Hope you all enjoy the fall activities and the time together.

  4. Oh, those times will make us all crazy. Enjoy the autumn season this year, it seems like it will be the most special ever! Have fun. Give Jackson an ear rub.

  5. I'm sorry you had a frustrating quilting day! But how exciting that you'll have family close by again, woo hoo!

  6. I have been absent for a while. That Spider-Man quilt is looking so good. Your own design as well. I'll look forward to seeing the end result.

  7. Hi Val! Remember me?? Been a little busy with life...but it's all good! So excited for you having your daughter and family live with you for a while! Love that having a little guy, another baby due and major real estate transactions at one time is in the plans! Oh to be young!


I have to admit, your comments make me smile! Thanks for sharing and for letting me know you stopped by. I Hope your day is awesome!
