WIP Wednesday [broken]

I have broken my sewing machine. I hit a pin, the needle bent and now I get a nasty metallic scraping noise when the bobbin case is in. She is going to the sewing machine doctor tomorrow :(

For the time being I am back to sewing on my Husqvarna. One of the reasons I got the Brother was because of the issues I was having when free motion quilting - the machine was skipping stitches, regardless of the speed I was working. And now of course, since the Brother broke, all I want to do is free motion quilting.

And that has meant that WIP for this week is minimal, as I'm too busy sulking. I've picked up some hand quilting on a very very old WIP - I'm planning to post about it in more detail soon: for now, it's just phone pictures - sorry!

I've also made a few more mix tape blocks. I think I know what I'm doing with these blocks now - at least I have a couple of ideas. I've also cut another few blocks to get me up to 15 blocks in total - so much for only do a few because I didn't have the fussy cutable fabrics!

And I started quilting the Siblings Together quilt - I need to get this finished for my August ALYoF goal.

It's a bank holiday weekend coming up in the UK. My cousin gets married on the Friday - her hen do was Monday night and we had cupcakes with willies on - yes we were then thoroughly immature - the older generation were by far the worst!

And then we are spending the rest of the weekend rearranging the house. Wish us luck! It didn't get off to the best start - the shelf needs dvds underneath it to make it level... this will be fixed!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday.

Oh bum! Do you have the spring darning foot for your Husqvarna? It works most of the time for me.

Well, I started out feeling very sorry for you and your new machine and ended up laughing at the cupcakes! Wishing you lots of luck for the re-arranging! - hope you won't argue as much as we would. Make the most of the wedding. xx
