You can see Steve in the background sitting on my sewing table, just watching everything I do.
Ps- I bought a metal quilting foot from eBay and it is soooo much better!! Note to self - never buy plastic sewing feet.

Mr Honi broke the girl on the telephone at the back and wasn't going to tell me, but she's fixed now and good as new :)
the next shelf down contains my "asian dollies". Dad bought me the 2 red ones (cause they reminded him of me with the eyelashes ) and he also bought the little momji too. I have a new momiji but I took this pic before I got her. And the one at the front is my beloved Unazukin

Just when I thought I had fixed my quilting foot (I melted the the hole to make it bigger so that the needle wasn't going through the plastic) another bit broke! I have a feeling that it was weakening and that's why the needle was piercing the plastic bit.
Anyway, the whole piece that attaches it to the arm just snapped off!! I am just soooo annoyed! One row left to do and I'm stuffed! I have a good mind to send it back to Brother with a big complaint letter. I don't normally do that but this has got me sooo mad!

I decided to drag myself from the couch to the table yesterday in an attempt to make myself feel a bit better from this nasty cold. As I only have 16 SLEEPS UNTIL THE WEDDING!! (OMG!!) I knew that I had to face my fears and finish this quilt so I can give it to the bub for her christening! I surprised myself and actually did a REALLY good job of machine quilting! I had visions of puckering, gathering, pulled stitches and general disasters, but it's turned out really, really well!!
