Wonky Stars #3

My sewing machine is back and better than ever!!! I am done with block #3 of the QAL and I've moved on to #4. This baby has to be finished by next Friday so I have a lot of work ahead of me.

The Farmer's Wife

I am a farmer's wife, so you can imagine my excitement when this arrived today. Besides my wonky stars QAL, I'll be reading this lovely lady this weekend.

On deck is Haunted Hollow II. I haven't exactly decided what I'm going to do with these 4 panels, but I will figure something out before Halloween.
I'm taking my kiddos to Nana and Paw's today for a quick visit. I'll be back soon!!!

Block #2

We are up and running in the "network" part of the house. We now have TV - I had NO idea how bad the damage was from Irene!!! I missed the news so much. Then my second catastrophe happened. My Janome decided to break down. I have to take it in for the diagnosis - more to come on my sweet Jan. I decided to get out the ole' Janome 9700, my embroidery machine. She wasn't crazy about straight stitching, until I found the right foot for her. Some of my block #2's for the Happy Quilting QAL aren't straight or acurately "pointy" but I'm managing. I hope to get 3 more of these babies done tonight...

I've fallen head over heals in love with American Banner Rose, isn't she beautiful?
