I can not begin to tell you what a month November has been so I won't.

Needless  to say there has not been much sewing until a few days ago or in between family crisis and issues.

I did get my sewing machine back, only cost me an arm...they let me leave with my leg.

Glad to get her home.

I had originally thought to buy another machine, downsize but then as I was looking at the machines and talking to my husband I noticed one thing I had forgotten about

............................... the longer neck.........................

for me that is a must have...so I am sticking with my Pfaff  Quilt Expression 4.0.  She is now purring so you won't hear a complaint from me (least ways not any time soon...hopefully).

We did drop off my Embroidery machine and decided that it was cheaper to fix it than to get a new one...so if you see me limping...you know they took my leg this time.

During all of the goings on here I had failed to mention that one of my patterns is on page 50 of the Island Batik Fall/Winter Catalog 2016.

I was really excited about this.

Right now I am working on a project for Island Batik

If  you don't hear from me before Thanksgiving...hope you have a wonderful one with friends and family....remember to turn your scales back ten pounds.

Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!

Glad your machine is back home and purring. I bet she enjoyed her decadent "spa" day and will do a great job stitching. And, maybe, with luck, they'll give you a special rate on your 2nd machine. Either way, it is cheaper to have them serviced than buy a new machine. Happy stitching.

Thanks for the tip to turn our scale back 10 pounds. Had never heard that tip before. :) Happy Thanksgiving.

So happy to hear your machine is back and working well! Just one arm isn't that bad - could be worse!

I'm glad to hear you got your machine back. Wishing you a wonderful thanksgiving with your family!

I have been actively doing more exercise this past month - so hopefully I won't have to turn the scale back. :-)

Glad to hear you have your machines back.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too. Sometimes it's an easy decision to mend an old friend!

The machines are dreams when they work well and nightmares when they have their temper tantrums. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Love your pattern, congrats on getting it in the catalog! Hope things continue to calm down for you on the homefront and your machine continues to purr.

I suppose we all have that love/hate relationship with our sewing machine. How exciting to have your patterns published.
