FINALLY A FINISH!!

I am laughing, you actually thought I finished a project???? Well....not a fabric project, I finished this puzzle......HA!!! I know, I am bad.....bbbbbaaaadddddd to the booooonnnneee!



But I did give Little Daddy Pfaff a work out last night, I stippled this baby quilt....and let me tell you, he was up for the challenge....the stitching on this machine is wonderful. I did have a little trouble with thread breaking but when I just slowed down and not run it a mile a minute, well....little daddy was alot happier.


I did have a binding on it but it looked horrible, I am a starch and iron person...and I had neither....but....no problem, I can frog the stitches out ( I love that phrase, got it off one of the blogs, sorry I can't remember....frog the stitches....rip it .... rip it..., isn't that cute?)... also I don't like the color of the binding, so I may have to go shopping again....hummmmmmm what a punishment.

who is the lucky baby getting it?

Rachel said...

Ha! I always wondered where that saying "frogging stitches" came from - rip it rip it - it makes complete sense to me know.

Love the quilt; I'm so glad you're enjoying your new toy.

A finish is a finish, Barb. Who cares if it's a puzzle or a quilt? Put it on your DONE list!

Very cute quilt. The border at the bottom is so neat. I love the way some of the animal head go above the border or am I just seeing things.

That quilt is adorable!!

We used to do puzzles at work. When they were done my boss would have them framed and we hung them all over the office.

Oh, Barb! You're such a tease. You make me laugh! I love the baby quilt. Yes, frog those stitches and go shopping!

You ARE BAD! But that's why I love you! Hey, how nice to have a sewing machine while you are visiting at your son's! I'm fortunate that I knit, and knitting is very portable. It goes everywhere with me.

I cant do puzzles, I get too frustrated....I think they require a thing called patience.....
