Step Away From Your Sewing Machine

My Brother "Laura Ashley " NX-2000

I have 4 projects going on in this picture.  Can you tell what they are?  Under the book is a quilted Landscape, for my guild challenge, top left of the book-are ABC's, quilted for my Great Grandson. Little Covered Note Books, and on the sewing machine is covered laundry cord in Red, making coils for placemat.  And, these are only the projects you can see in the picture.  Jody Pearl has invited us to join "Just A Moment" JaM.  Which can be found with her link on my blog.  This week is "Step Away From You Sewing Machine" and take a picture and tell about our projects.  I counted all my machines for this, I have 3 Brothers-my NX-2000, CS-6000B,  XL-3022.  My Janome Harmony9102D overlock.  3 Treadles - Singer, this one  is from the 1800's and it works, one singer that does not work, one Golden Star that still works.  And many parts from others that are tables.  I have my Grandma's Singer that is from 1924, elec, and it still works and it means the most.  Not sure what else to tell you about my projects, sometimes my projects are my only sane moments.  

   Check back to follow my projects or to see what happens next.

This is my studio DOG.

This is my studio dog, D.O.G., that's his name.  He is about 76 lbs.  And loves to be in the studio with me when I am there.  D.O.G. loves the snow, and being outdoors, does not chase cats he grew up with cats.  But, does not like people with hats on, and likes women more then men.  Yes, he is spoiled, he has his treats in the evening.  And thinks he is a lap dog.  I am sharing him because I see alot of studio pets and love to see all of them.
I am still working on my ABC's for Brody, our great grandson.  They will be pictured here soon. 
Keep Stitching,

January 2012

Here we are again!  Another beginning!  What will we do this year?  Lose weight?  Exercise?  Save money?  How about doing something different, if you have wanted to create your own designs or patterns, then go for it.  Or make that special quilt for someone. Learn how to dye fabric. What rocks your boat?  What makes your heart sing?  What keeps you up late and gets you up early?  I am hoping for a more productive year of blogging, quilting, needlework's and growing friendships. 
Happy Stitching!
