Things are somewhat back to a normal pace at last. My guild's quilt show was very successful and I nearly have the finances of it closed down and can turn the treasury position over to the next lady. I have had several great days in the sewing room catching up with a couple projects.I finished my BOM Garden Party Down Under April instructions upper two blocks. I am very pleased with how it came out as well as the lower March blocks.
My Teddy Bear quilt came back from the quilter. I got him bound and got his smiling mouth sewn on.
Last year I desperately looking for a quilter's ironing board. I found one, but the reviews were really poor. They are pricey and I sure didn't want to invest in something that had issues. At the quilt show I purchased some bobbins for my two Bernina sewing machines and discovered they gave me the wrong size. So I called them and they agreed to exchange them, so we took off for a 40 minute trip to their store. Got the bobbins exchanged but eyed this ironing board in the shop. It is made by Singer and did not have the issues that the previous brand had with all the complaints. They also gave me a 20% discount on it for having to travel 40 minute each way to exchange the bobbins. I am really happy, already tried it out and love it. Loki our oldest daughter's new puppy has discovered the wonderful world of toys. This one didn't last very long, back to the pet store.
Your Garden blocks are very pretty, and the Teddy bear quilt too. I love its smiling face! The new ironing board looks great, I love the large and square shape, and it was nice to have a discount on it too. Oops for the doggy toy, puppies are very good at destroying stuff!ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing, and linking up ;)
Love your blocks and quilt.that ironing board looks handy too.ReplyDelete
Amazing Garden Party blocks. They are so beautiful. That looks like a really practical ironing board.ReplyDelete
The garden party bouquets are lovely! Did you embroider the bear's mouth after it was quilted? (I'd think it would be easier to embroider before.) I bought a big board, though not the trademarked Big Board, from a vendor at our guild show several years ago. It fits on top of the regular ironing board. I really like the larger pressing area.ReplyDelete
LOVE the garden party blocks! Congrats on the new ironing board and discount. I'm familiar with the doggy chewing. We can't let our puppy have any of the toys like that - they are in tatters in no time!ReplyDelete

I laughed at the pup. Our Angel Little Bit was good at getting all the stuffing out of her toys.
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

Your Garden Party blocks are so pretty! What a great quilt that is going to make. What a lucky thing to have happened--accidentally getting the wrong size bobbin and you ended up with what looks like the perfect ironing board! Lucky you. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
