Whooooo Hoooooo....

I have accomplished a lot today and it makes me feel good!  :)

Here's the last Granny Square Quilt, pint sized, going to be a baby quilt I do believe! 

I took this outside, and you can see the shadow of my wind chimes on the quilt!  Oh well, I love the chimes too.

See, this one is only 4x4, so I think it would be a great baby quilt for a baby girl. 

Anyhow, I've cleared 3 things from my list today!  Yipee.  :)

Working on my list....   I am making some progress!  But it gets longer every time I look at it.  But you can see where there are numbers missing, that means I finished that one.  :)

About sewing machines.  I've been asked what makes my relationship with my Bernina sewing machine a LOVE/HATE one.  Well, I'm going to write a post about that soon!  Really.
But today, actually this morning my Bernina was making a funny sound when I was sewing with it.  I had just oiled it yesterday, so it shouldn't have been dry enough to be making funny sounds.  So I kept my ear on it and decided if it got worse, I would stop and turn it off and get out my Janome.  I got all kinds of sad at the thought of my Bernina being out of commission.  ACK!  I would have to go through that period of readjusting to a different machine, not sure that's something I am anxious to do!
So, the Bernina stopped making that sound, thank goodness.  It's stitch has been fine all day, and it's not been sewing crazy (as I KNOW it can do!) so for the moment it seems ok.  I KNOW it's time to get it in for a check up, it's been at least 2 years, probably 3 and it's been yelling at me for some time to get it a check up.  But the shop where I got it closed and the other one doesn't seem as knowledgeable and they scare me. And I don't know where another shop is that can service it... so if I keep  my head buried in the sand, it won't get sick right, I mean my Bernina...????

Gotta feed the dogs, Lulu was nursing a belly ache this morning and didn't eat breakfast, and she's absolutely starvalating tonight! 
God Bless.  Anne
