I worked on my little snowmen for snowbound. Here they are so far.
Lastly.. my ongoing saga of the bent quilt frame. None of the local dealers were really able to help me with a replacement part. One guy says he called the warehouse and they are checking. That was about 4 weeks ago.When my boss went to Quilt Market she saw the after market sales rep and talked to her and got me another contact. SO I was so excited!!! I called and the guy was really not very helpful. He wanted me to fax him the parts list (REALLY?) you sell the frame and you need my parts list? Ok. I took the fax # but my hopes were deflated. On the same day I talked with one of my friends who had just returned from her home in Arkansas. Her husband offered to take a look and see if he had suggestions. What the heck I thought. I took the bent piece with me and went to visit my friend. While J and I sat on the deck and discussed quilting and books and kids, her hubby FIXED my bent frame piece. He is an experienced metal worker, so he pounded and unbent and even cut the metal. He was so sweet, he was worried that it had a couple of dents in the front. Anyway, I took it back home and put the frame together and put the carriage on and it seemed to roll on the frame fine. So I mounted the machine and it still seemed to roll fine. I have a quilt on the frame right now!!! How exciting is that??? I am having some trouble with threads breaking , but my friend D has the same machine so she will help me work that out.
