New batik CQ quilt.

I bought this kit while I was in Long Beach CA. Put it together over the weekend, and am quilting it.

Click on the images for a close up.

I am using Ann Bright's  Pappillon design from the August Sugar and spice border collection.

What a bad blogger I am!

While I have great intentions of blogging more often, I just never get to it.

I have been busy setting up machines and Computer systems for the quilting machines. I have also been busy with family stuff.

And the big news, we have decided to move.

We are looking for a house with a separate studio for my business. I really need to separate work and home time. For the last 19 years I have been self employed, and exept for a few years, it has always been me working at home.

So, if we can sell our current home, we will be moving!
We are looking at a smaller home, since girl has moved away to college. Also, since my studio and all related items will be out of the house, we don't need quite the space.

We have been staging our current house.
If you know of anyone who would love a cool house in the woods outside of Bellingham.....
My house

My Kitchen

Wine bar, complete with wine cellar.

Bathroom, recently redone.

Master Bedroom

Please, buy my house!!!!!!

Here is a great pic of boy playing in the snow.
He built himself an igloo.
Randy had just finished shoveling the driveway. There was lots of snow to build with.
When you stop measuring inches and start measuring feet, it gets a bit ridiculous.
I was pretty impressed, Zak could get all the way in and sit in there!

By the way, I am SO done with the snow.
I went to town today, and barely got back up the hill.
Of course I was NOT going to carry the groceries 1/2 mile up the hill.

I think Randy will go get the girl from work at midnight. She works late, who would shop at that hour at the mall in this snow? The parking lot at the mall wasn't plowed really good.

Here are a few great pics of the snow.

Merry Christmas #2

My Daughter is playing for us while we got ready for Christmas.

Merry Christmas

It has been a really long time since I posted.
I got really busy, had a computer crash, lost my passwords etc!

anyway, I am snowed in right now so I thought I
would share some pretty pictures.

I am supposed to head out to set up a few A1 quilting Machines on the east side of the Cascade mountains. Hmmmm, I don't know if I can get out. My community is on the side of a mountain, and the roads are somewhat immpassable.

Thread, oh my!

Well, here is my thread wall.
It isn' all my thread.

I have some here, next to one sewing machine. This is mostly Masterpiece by Superiour thread. (My Favourite Thread company!)
I have some Isocord embroidery thread. Also, some more piecing thread next to my Pfaff machine.
And there is a whole bunch more thread from a 6 drawer unit from under my longarm table.
I hardly ever use this stuff, and hardly ever go into these drawers.

I went through them all, emptied 3 of the 6 drawers.
I got rid of lots of partial spools. I also got rid of some yukky thread as well.

Here is the bag of thread to recycle or donate or sell.
Why did I do this.........
Because I have a fairly sizeable order from Superior threads coming this morning!
