Big congratulations to you Ami! ok_hand

Getting rid of boxes of paperwork is a huge deal and getting that repair guy to sit up and pay attention so he found the timing issue is also huge.

The only quilting I have been doing lately is t shirt quilts. I have made 3 pier 1 tshirt quilts for 3 ladies who have worked there 30 plus years (each). And have one more to do but am waiting on her daughter to bring me a couple of older vintage shirts.  They are thrilled but I am getting very tired of them.  I toldone lady who wanted to post it on facebook she better tell people I charge 250 and it takes 6 months, or else she has to come help me make them.  Also 2 graduation quilts and one for a local attorney. Yikes 7 since Christmas. No wonder I am tired of them.

Crossing my fingers that it works well for you now!!

Well I did keep telling him that there was a sample right there on the machine for him to see and it was knit fabric, and that I wanted to sew more knit fabric but not with the machine skipping like that. Finally he decided to try using knit fabric and it happened to him too. I hope to try it later today and see if it is all working and then I may just cut out another t-shirt and sew it up..............I have a large piece of white cotton jersey and the pattern I drafted myself really fits well so I can always use another white t-shirt as they go with everything and I only have 1, and it does not fit as well as my new pattern.

Well I guess I better have at that last box of paper and hopefully will finish that today. There is lots more to do with paper but the rest is in file cabinets and likely a lot of that can be shredded and tossed because it is really old, this will make room for the stuff that needs to be filed and organized...........I hate paperwork!!!!!

Sounds to me like he just wasn't listening well. LOL!

I have been trying to do a blog post for half a week now. I take photos with my cell phone and that will not talk to my computer.............yes I have tried. I have an apple computer and samsung phone and the two do not like each other. In any case my phone is really dyeing and I need a new one soon. I have been unable to upload my photos to the blog but finally last night I got them loaded and this morning opened the blog on the computer and got to edit everything around the photos..........that was painful. So I just posted my t-shirt quilt on the blog. I still have a few more posts planned, the Home In The Woods quilt and a few more pieces of clothes that will be posted soon as well.

The blog is https://enchantingquilts.blogspot.com

DH is hoping to start working with a new company in late July early August and I told him as soon as he gets a few paychecks I need a new phone. I have a Samsung S5. I think it is about 5 years old and that is an antique for a cell phone. The poor thing is struggling just to make a phone call lately and really going slow to load anything. Kinda like the little engine that could :)

Ami, I checked with Google and here's a fact to dazzle your DH with:

Samsung Galaxy S5 in White First released April 11, 2014

So, if you bought your phone when it first came on the market it is SIX YEARS OLD.

Your T shirt quilt is a sentimental marvel. The man will be deeply touched by the thought and care you put into creating it for him.

Well done, the gentleman should be very pleased with it.  Hope all goes well so you can quilt it soon.

I posted it on my facebook page and he responded to it. I think when I give him the quilt we are both going to be crying. Toni used to show up at work and come in my office and plop down and pretty soon we would just be laughing about something. Dean would pop his head in the door and ask her if she was disturbing us and then would laugh and leave..................as long as the work got done he did not care. She was about one of the funniest people I have ever met and her dyeing was sudden and a total shock............she had a heart attack.

I hope to get back to Colorado pretty soon, we have plans in the works so it is in the works.
