WiP - 10 things

I'm taking part in Ten Things This Summer. If you want to join in you have until July 15th to make your list. I made mine on Saturday and I'm willing to stick with it. Today's WiP is all about those numbers on the list.

#1 Diamond Tread - I passed the basting stage which is good. I started with quilting but it's not smooth ride. There is bulky part on the block and my machine was jumping over it missing stitches. I don't know if I pressed the seams in wrong direction or when I went wrong.

#2 Ballerinas - I had those houses pieced for some time. I just needed to press the seams and cut the shape out. I'm using template made out of square. I seen this on Elizabeth's blog. I prepared the side stripes and white stripes for roof. Whenever I feel like working on this one I have it prepared.



#3 Circles - This will be new crib size quilt I'll work on once #1 finished. I played with the layout. I had to find out how many circles I actually got. Not sure if I go random or organized way.

#9 Gallery - in progress. I set up Quilt page.

#10 Service - I contacted my dealer on Monday and arranged all the necessities. My Brother went on vacation. He'll get nice massage and some oil treatment too. He's coming back within few days and hopefully full of energy and ready to work again. So yeah, you understood right. I'm without machine for few days so I have some time to prepare and precut fabrics.

It goes well considering I only have the list for few days. Call me Action Man, ehmm Action Woman?! Sounds like Wonder Woman. Never mind.

  8. I have to admit - my favourite are the ballerina houses, lol. So sweet! I hope your machine comes back "fit as a fiddle", and that the quilting goes smoothly on Diamond Tread - I definitely feel your pain (she says, as she thinks of her quilt that has had to have the quilting ripped out TWICE, and is now in a messy pile in the sewing room, being ignored!) :D

  15. I like the random mix of circles (if you're taking votes - lol). The ballerina houses are V cute, looking forward to seeing that one finished! I have a Brother too ... I haven't sent him for a service yet and he is sounding a little clunky ... just one more stitch and I'll send him out, I promise (erm...)
