This and That

I fell off the “goal” wagon today and decided to take a break from quilting.  I put up some Christmas decorations—before you start groaning that it isn’t even Thanksgiving, remember we are leaving here on December 15 and I wanted to enjoy the decorations for a little longer than waiting until after Thanksgiving.  And the little tree I decorated will travel in the motorhome with us so all we have to do is unplug it and take it along.

After a lunch of really good tacos I did go downstairs to the quilt studio.  The Grace frame which came with the new little Juki sewing machine needed some new leaders—the fabric to which you attach the quilt backing.  I had some leftover canvas, got out the serger and quickly had new leaders.  Loaded some practice fabric on the frame and tried out the newest acquisition.  What a sweet little machine and so easy to run, I can backtrack easier than with the big longarm.  I am going to load one of my Christmas wall hangings and use the Juki to quilt it. 

I did work on a client quilt, got the backing loaded and the top measured.  Heading back downstairs in a few minutes and will get the batting and top loaded, too.  See, I did quilt some today.

Michael was feeling under the weather today, hope he is just tired!!  Emmi was her usual busy self. 

Sam asked me to post some photos of Steve’s project—well here it is and as you can tell by the photos, this project is going to take a loooooong time!

The wind blew today but not nearly as bad as the forecasters were predicting and we had some sunshine.West Boulder this morning


  1. I really admire folks who can work with their hands and create or restore old things. I often think that the expression "all thumbs" was created just to describe me. :(

  2. Yup!! That is a long term project all right, but it sure looks like a great one to be involved in.

  3. Look's to me like it is late 30's or early 40's vintage, I like the small block Chev conversion, and dual brake system conversion, last street rod I did I put a small block with a 350 hydromatic and four wheels of disk brakes from a late model Chevelle on it. it turned out great even on the interstate. All of the stuff was readily available in junkyards.Hope the rest goes smooth. Be Safe Out there, Sam & Donna...
