November 2012

 I completed another quilt top like the one in the last post.  I have this one on the frame.  I have been having trouble with this one.  My pressure foot kept falling off so I got a new screw and that seems to be holding that on.  Then I wasn't paying attentions and hit one of my side clamps.  I must have a burr somewhere.  I keep sanding the foot and the plate but my thread keeps shredding.  I am not sure what else to do.  I have two or three quilts on the back of the frame that need to be bound.  I have 4 quilts that I have been working on on the design wall.  I have been busy, just not getting things finished.
 Here is the first step of Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street.  This is going to be such a fun quilt with the bright colors she has chosen for it.  Most of my quilt club is doing this one, which will make the process even more fun.
 We have two new additions to the family this month.  Here is Pugsley.  He is my son Kyle's family's puppy.  They adopted him yesterday.  He is 81/2 weeks old.  He is a pug/beagle mix from an Amish/mennonite family in Lancaster.  There were six puppies.  I had hoped that they got to meet the parents, but they didn't.  I hope he isn't from a puppy mill.  They are notorious for them in Lancaster.  He is only about 8 lbs but looks so much larger in his pictures.
And here is Emma.  She was adopted about a week ago from the SPCA.  She is about 8 months old and is a terrier mix of some kind.  She came to visit for Thanksgiving and was very well behaved until the kids went outside to play.  She nipped about half of them and had them in tears.  She was raised at the SPCA since she was tiny and was found abandoned.  I guess she didn't learn that kids aren't other puppies and not to bite!  She is very sweet.  Tiffany is her mom.
