Jim has decided on Choice #, well, I'm not going to tell you, you'll have to wait and see. Tomorrow night I will be finishing the quilt top. And then it is going back to the Quilted Moose for machine quilting, after I get the backing and wash it. I always wash my fabrics, I know some people don't, but I don't want to take the chance on having any shrinking.
These are all the different color combinations people were using. It was really neat to see how different it would look!
Here are a couple that are halfway done. You make 8 "points" for a wallhanging/lap size.
That one is Judy's, Paige's sister. And this one is Paige's:
And last, but not least, Paige's children. They were waiting for their dad to pick them up before class started, I apologize for the red eye, my camera wasn't set up properly.

Justice loves cold,
It must be because she's actually Canadian. She licks the windows when it's cold out too.

And here is Shasta, who taught our class, standing in front of her Magic Tiles quilt:
Next up, the Lonestar Quilt. We'll be doing this one next Saturday.
And after that, this one:
And there are more after that. Taking classes at the Quilted Moose is a wonderful way to spend a Saturday. :-)

The location of the second game was down by the river, and it was cold! The ship in this picture is a museum. Closed for the season of course.
Yes, we've had snow and more is on the way! :-)

And more bears around the fireplace! And here is the wreath my mom made for my dad's grave. She crocheted the snowflakes.
My mom is the one who taught me to crochet. And then from there I taught myself knitting and quilting and all the other fun stuff! But she started it all, so it's all her fault I have a room full of craft related stuff now. :-)

More specifically, my metal cigar tube filled with double pointed needles.
After she was tired of that. She discovered something else. Yarn.
We had a talk. She can have the metal tube that makes noise, I keep the Lorna's Laces.

Thankfully I have alot left in my stash since I am not buying yarn for the near future so I can use up some of what I have!
One more day of work and it's the weekend. Now that I work full time "weekend" has a whole new meaning!

That would be the lever that lifts my presser foot. Snapped right off. I guess the look on my face was hysterical. I was very puzzled at first as to what had happened. My machine is 10 years old, a Bicor VX1005 made by Brother. After realizing the problem, I did what anyone would do. Got out my Packer tool box.
Turns out it will be an easy fix, if I can get a new lever. I emailed 2 companies who said no, and today I managed to find another one, and I called them. He assured me he will "fix me up" and he will call tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
