Weekly Updates--Quilts, Cross Stitch, & Clothes

I didn't do too badly, all things considered.  I finished one of the tanks I was working on for my daughter.  I need to do a little seam ripping on the other in order to fix it.  Speaking of my daughter, she is a really super fast seam ripper and ripped out a ton of quilting for me on a quilt I made more than 10 years ago.  I had started quilting it on my domestic machine at the time and had two large tucks in the backing.  Stopped working on it, there it sat, etc.  So now I have that one ready to re-quilt.

I did get the Windermere #2 onto the frame last night and am planning to work from the front of the machine to quilt it.  I also have a call in to the store where I bought my long arm in an attempt to order some dampener plates to help with the massive vibrations my Juki has.  I was kinda rolling my eyes when the first guy I talked to said it's really hard to get parts from Juki.  Big surprise there.  Anyway, we'll see what happens.

I finished the cross stitch I needed to have done last Friday and we even got it framed.  It hasn't made its way to its new owner yet, but hopefully she will like it once it gets delivered.  This was a free pattern I found on the Internet.  It's well traveled since I worked on it on our trip this summer.

I had a lot of car time over the weekend, so I worked a little more on the bluebird cross stitch. It's a kit from Bucilla.

I even put in a very small amount of stitches on the never-ending project.
I put together my little Thimbleblossoms Vintage mini.  I used B&C Handmade for this one. 
I'm going to use some of the leftover charm squares and partials for the backing.
I also finished up all of my Sewcial Bee Sampler blocks.  Not sure what I'm doing with those as far as setting or finishing yet.

I've cut just a few of the Fishline quilt HST.

I added a picture of the pink and brown Valentine quilt to my 2017 finishes.

Until next week...
