A Gift for Me!

On Monday I went to my EZ quilters Meeting. EZ quilters is a friendship group that my Mom belonged to for many years and then when she moved out of the area, they asked me join and keep her spot warm.  One of the new members Pat Chambers made these cute little pin cusions for all of us.  I believe she used walnut shells for the insides.  I picked one for Mom and one for me.  I haven't decided if I'm going to mail Mom's or made her drive 10 hrs to get it ;] ....Hey I know that sounds bad but we are always looking for excuses to visit.

Donna and Pat are in charge of philanthropy for our group.  Donna passed around a bag of philanthropy projects and asked if we would like to do one, and of course her bag came back empty.  We don't take much prompting, lol.  New project, cool!  So here is the one I grabbed!

Today my friends Dione and Carol are going with me to the Pomona Quilt Show.  There is a Tin Lizzie 18 DLS Long Arm that I have my eye on.    It comes on a Grace Falcone frame and it seems like a great deal ($5999).  I still have to test drive, but I'm itchin to get it.  

If anyone has any warnings or word of wisdom, I'm all ears....for the next couple of hours anyway.  Cuz after after I buy it, I don't want to hear...."oh you should have done this"...or "oh I have one I could have given you"....hehehe.  Its a big purchase and I'm a little freaked, which is why I am bringing backbone reinforcements.

Well I'm off to the circus, I hope you all get a chance to sew.  Check back here tomorrow, and I'll let you know if I did it!

Have a wonderful Day!
Love Aunti


  1. I will be anxious to know if you went for it! I am staying from temptation...I will actually sew this weekend. Of course I am awaiting a huge order of Flea Market Fancy so I don't feel to bad. Love the of my favorite things to make for friends too.

  2. Yea! You know I love pink!
    I, too, am excited about your purchase of a long arm with frame. I am loving my HQ 16 sit down version!
    Hope to see you soon!


I would love to hear from you
