Busy week back at the machine

My Gammill was humming this week as I quickly returned to the business of show quilting. I can't show you one of them, but here are two that are going out of town on Saturday. I'll be taking a well deserved break today to go to the Fort Myers show with friends. More to come!

New friend in the studio

My friend in Wisconsin sent me a wonderful surprise today...a quilt buddy! My husband and I laughed out loud when I opened the box and took her out. See what you think. I'm going to call her Aunt Sewphie. (I have introduced her to Uncle Leo, but he doesn't seem interested...) Aunt Sewphie sits on my batting, keeping a watchful eye on things in the studio while she stitches on her quilt top. Thanks, Marcia!

WOO HOO!!! Back in business!

My Gammill man came Saturday and we replaced loads of parts as well as the motherboard on my machine. After some tweaking to make the stitch perfect, I was off and running. What a horrible week! All in the past now, and my finger is back to its normal color with just a line on it where the belt caught it.
I did a couple of test quilts before re-zipping the show quilt I had been working on when the machine quit. The quilting went smoothly and I am so happy, I have to show you a few pictures!
Back to full speed work tomorrow. Yippee!!
