Could it be...............a new project??

Look what's laying on my machine...........Could it be a new project?? Am I insane?? Don't I have enough projects that need finishing?? Probably, but it's so much fun to start something new. It's going to be for my oldest grand-daughter who graduates from 8th grade & gets confirmed this spring. She painted her room hot pink & lime green, and her favorite color is purple. Would you believe I bought FOUR pieces of purple fabric before I found the right one. Needless to say, I have plenty of purple in my stash right now.

I like to sew really fast, pedal to the metal, but this project is going to go a bit slower than I like. My poor Pfaff has to go to the sewing machine hospital. It needed servicing but somehow decided to jump out of time, so it's REALLY time to go in. Guess it thought it had to take matters into it's own hands or I'd just make it work & work & work, without it's spa treatment.
I'll have to put this current quilt together on my cute little Brother machine that I got to take to quilt club & as a spare machine. It sews very well but it just pluuuuuggggggggggggs along, even at it highest speed setting. I'm just glad I have it, slow or not. Otherwise I'd be in a real pickle & everything would be at a standstill.


  1. I quess I can't prove it!
    But I have lots of dirty clothes to wash for Don and dishs piled hight. The house is a mess. Now I fot to catch up on everything.
    Love your colors on the new project. It look like fun. Flicsha

  2. Your colors are GREAT! I can't wait to see what you do with them. Deciding on which pattern to use for a new quilt is really hard for me to do~~

  3. I like the colors - I can tell it is going to be a great project.
