Great News! My Phaff is finally ready after 3 months. Hopefully, it will work in Lewisburg for longer than a day! Picking it up on Thursday.
UPDATE: Plans for May 8 - 13 week:
1) Construct top row of BH leader/ender project. - Done and did bottom too (it has already been claimed by DH and DGD#5. I still have 4 or 6 rounds to go (neurtral, double red, neutral, double purple, neutral, and double blacks as border) so it is far from finished!)
2) Cut blue quarter square triangles- Done and started neutral sets.
3) Work on Blue Binding Star. Put together all cut strips; bought more black for side triangles. I'm changing my original design to grouping of 4 stars with half stars around. Since I have alot of blue fabric that are not batiks, I am going to mix them with the batiks. How? I don't know yet--still pondering! 
4) Work on binding of DD's quilt NOTHING DONE
5) Studio! I think it is cursed. Another no show but this one I understand...his wife is not doing well! JINXED 
6) Sammie's Quilt  - I  still want to use handquilting frame so will wait a couple more days. STILL WAITING!
7) Fence - Monday we bought 3 panels to fix corner and begin replacing whole fence. Special thanks to DGS#9 for coming over and helping unload panels and to neighbor's son too. Next step is getting panels to backyard and putting them up. NOTHING ELSE DONE


  1. Hope you had a very happy Mother's Day too. Hope your machine is all better and you can bring it home.
