way toooooooo long

it has been tooooooo long since i've posted. i've been working a lot and then spring break and no machine until now.
the guy couldn't find anything wrong with it after two and a half weeks so i just went and got it. it's okay. i'm having bobbin issues. very frustrating!!!!! but it's getting better.
these are two blocks from some bees i'm in and i'm starting to work on some other things. hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

  1. I especially love that second block!! Did she send you all the fabric for that one, or is some of it yours?

  2. Glad to see you again. Don't worry I think this time of year is hard to blog. I love both of these blocks, they look great. All the colors look great in the bottom one.

  3. So glad you have your machine back! But I bet that was just too frustrating for you? Hope the bobbin issues resolve. But in the meantime, your blocks are beautiful.

  4. The blocks both look fantastic even with the bobbin issues. It is so frustrating for something like that to happen. Hope it gets fixed soon.

  11. We had a post on Sew, Mama, Sew! a couple weeks back, but of course I can't find it now. But anyway, I bought these Little Genie Magic Bobbin Washers (if you do a google search you can find them for sale at a bunch of places), and they seriously work amazing! I've had a LOT LESS trouble with my bobbin and thread. My machine is about 928340823408234 years old, so I frequently have issues with it. It might not solve all your problems, but it's worth a shot! I highly recommend them. They're fairly inexpensive and you get 12 in a pack (I think) I just replaced one today only because the one I was using fell out and I couldn't find it anywhere, but I think they last quite a long time. Good luck!
