SLUGGISH

My pictures are a little like blogger....sluggish. I won't whine about blogger but if I have not left a comment on your blog...that is the reason....so sluggish, hard to comment...takes forever....oh....I am whinning....sorry...

said I wouldn't.

I made this dish towel and cozy. Thinking about trimming up the towel.

Finished stitching around all of these turtles for a quilt (see...I am trying to finish up a few things this month). I started this project months ago....



Sandra sent me this cute cute fabric (can you tell it is from Canada)? I was so surprised and happy when I got this. Thanks Sandra!




Cindy sent these for "The Things I love" quilt. I just love embroidery machines. I say I won't get one because it will cost me more money...well.....I guess I need to think about what I say because I got a Slice and it is costing me more money. Go figure....maybe if I can get over the initial cost of the machine? Okay, that sounds good....did I save face?




Toni sent me these blocks and such a sweet card.


You sure you don't want to join us?

With the GO and the Slice you can make blocks that are just as wonderful as machine embroidered. I love the turtle!

Yes, blogger has been a pain, some people can't even comment as themselves!
It's fun to have new toys, huh? Change is good for the soul!

Sheila said...

The dish towel and pot holder are really sweet , great idea . You have recieved some great additions for your THings I love quilt . What is a Slice may I ask?

Regina said...

I want an embroidery machine too but could never justify it. The "new" old machine I bought is made for that but missing the pieces so I'm keeping my eye out for them.

I've not had any problem leaving comments. I know Blogger has to do updates and there is always a downside to that. But hopefully it will be better and back to normal soon.

Barb, If I knew how to use my embroidery machine I would send you a block too. I am going to give it a try when I am on vacation.

I love the flip flops. I'm a flip flop person, I wear them just about every single day. Are they made from your slice?

Needled Mom said...

No embroidery machine???? We'll see!

Your work is always so much fun to see and I can tell you are having a great time.

Love the dish towel and pot holder. Oh and the turtle is adorable.

Maybe if you delete your cookies and do a defrag it will sped up things. Like I really know? Love all your blocks.

Love the teapot and the maple leaf fabric because I can identify with both images. I would love an embroidery machine, but then I would probably need a computer with more memory/speed and then the patterns, and then more time, and then...etc. Your quilt is going to be so beautiful.

I bought a really expensive machine when I first started quilting. I never used a sewing machine before and people thought I had lost my mind when I bought an $800 machine. In the 30 months I've had it, I've spent literally thousands and thousands of minutes on that machine. If I divide those minutes by the cost of the machine, it has definelety returned my investment. If you are going to actually use the machine, then it's not a frivolous expense. The way I see, there's no way that you could pass a machine up!

Barbara said...

Haven't had any blogger problems, thank goodness because I'm still catching up after a mini-trip over a week ago. I always enjoy watching your turtle project take shape!

Dresden Quilter said...

I love all of the blocks. I would be happy to send you one.

Love the tea pots

Right now Blogger is working for me, but I have had my problems. We had a quilter come to our guild to show us her embroidery machine quilts. They were very nice, but I don't think I would ever want to make one of those. I like the 'old fashioned' techniques best. Love your turtle. :)

Oh Barb, I agree blogger has been crazy this week!!

SewCalGal said...

I agree Blogger is extremely sluggish. Needs a jolt.

Beautiful items in your post, but your turtle continues to remain my favorite. Better than any turtle I saw in Hawaii.

I thought blogger was acting funny just before the major crash last week...haven't noticed too much this week, but haven't been around too much either. Love all of your stuff, looks great, can't wait to see it all together in a quilt. Need to work in those cherry-limeaides......lol!!

Just wanted to say hi.

sewmeow said...

Well...guess I missed the sluggish with not posting for 6 days...sheez! I love your turtles too!
