|Quilt Design Wallhanging|
|String Tote Bag|
|Close-up of Quilt Designs|
I made this wallhanging at work this past week to showcase the quilting designs we sell. This design pack makes 5" square quilt designs. You make the entire quilt and then hoop the quilt sandwich (quilt top, batting, and backing) and then embroider the designs, which are also the quilting. After the designs were done, I stitched in the ditch around the blocks and around the borders. That was enough quilting for a wallhanging. I love getting things done.
The other picture shows the string tote bag I made for work. I am teaching classes on this bag. The front pocket is made of strings, and there are several pockets inside. Like I said earlier, I love getting things done.

I have been having trouble with my PC for some time. It was s-l-o-w to do anything, and some things it would not do at all. Then Saturday morning I got the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH! Richard said he knew then that I had big trouble. I went on to work and he and Adam worked on my computer. He called me a little later and said my CPU and motherboard were toast. So they ordered these parts from Newegg.com and spent about $134 instead of $700 or more on a new computer. I this fixes the problem. I am using my old laptop and although it works it is not what I am used to and I don't have all my programs on it. I use it for Skype and embroidery and Electric Quilt. Richard says the parts will come tomorrow and he will get busy on it, so maybe my next post will be from the PC. Meanwhile, he has not had any emails from Newegg so no tracking number or anything. I can't believe they don't email their customers.
