Well, it appears I got it backwards.  A featherweight is NOT suitable for FMQ. 

They sure do push the nostalgia buttons though.

Besides working on my mq9 and running to machine shops I just don't know where time is flying to.  The other day the shop that I bought my pfaff 3.0 from called me and they got their new release sensation pro so after discussing it with DH I took the 3.0 back and traded for the sensation.  Inever expected when I got the 3.0 that the newer model would be released so soon after my purchase.  I thought I'd be trading it in next sept. but the deal was one that I couldn't pass up.  Now I'm trying to figure out how to make the logo quilt for the sensation it looks like a medallion but yet has square sides if anyone has suggestions or can advise on the pattern please let me know.  I am sure one happy quilter that can't sleep in the night maybe its the excitement of the day.

 

I have a featherweight 221 I might sell it I never sew on it.  But it is nice for a nostalgia.

Of Course. I wouldn't be a very good friend if I didn't share.

UGH....It's Moaning. I don't want it to be. I want my pillow...... whine*    Sprout took it in his little round head to get up at 12:30 AM and we've been going strong all night. I finally told his Daddy to take him after I got him to go back to sleep at 6 and his siblings woke him up when they got up at 6:30. Now daddy is at work and I'm the Mom on Duty at home... Sprout is no worse the wear for so little sleep. He's cheerful and busy. I, on the other hand, ain't so bright eyed and bushy tailed...  

Heard that a neighbor woman is fighting lung cancer so I am thinking I need to whip out a fast throw for her to take to chemo treatments. The poor lady had a bad cough all spring and the CPA gave her multiple courses of antibiotics over the next several months for it - which of course did nothing. When she finally got x-rays and there were visible spots on her lung, the CPA treated her for a fungal infection rather then ordering further tests. They waited so long to get a good diagnosis that now her lung has collapsed. The prognosis does not look good.   So...Does anyone have a great quilt that i can stitch up in short order...with Sprout helping?

Nana:
The throat space is tiny and the feed dogs don't drop.

It's the throat space that would stop me. The fact that the feed dogs don't drop doesn't hinder my FM quilting one bit on my Singer Industrial. I can remove them physically and attach the throat plate with a needle hole but that requires removing six screws every time I want to change and sometimes losing some of the the screws when they drop out of place and roll off. I just attach my FM foot and there is enough clearance that I don't even notice that the feed dogs are there.

CC- a few thoughts for you on a couple of topics. Is Sprout one of those kids who needs less sleep than "normal?" My younger was and it took me five or six years to figure it out. After I had a brilliant moment that this was the case and put him to bed much later than a child his age should be, he slept through the night and therefore so did I.

On your neighbor's lung cancer--sorry to hear that. Also very sad that the CPA didn't order an x-ray as first course. Even with that it could take some time to actually determine the diagnosis. From personal experience I have learned that cancer, fungal infection or just a simple infection have very similar properties and therefore I had three procedures and two biopsies before it was ruled that mine is just the garden variety of infection. To this day I have had no symptoms. A spot was picked up on a routine x-ray. There are so many square in square patterns that work up really fast for a throw for her.

Thanks for your thoughts Agnes. I really haven't had much time to even think about what I want to do for the quilt. Sprout napped for a couple hours this morning, giving me enough time to sort laundry and do the dishes, and then he hit the floor running... 

Years ago when DH and I first started dating, he developed a nasty bought of pneumonia. The doc ordered x-rays right off, before he started any treatments. They showed a massive spot on the left  lung. The thing looked about the size of a fist or bigger. Poor Dh saw that, and was sure it was only a matter of time before he was shaking hands with the grim reaper. Thankfully, the doc didn't buy in, and ordered a re-take on those pics... and the 2nd set came back without any visible abnormalities of that nature. Turned out some careless lab tech had gotten a finger-print on the slide. LOL  DH was so relieved to find out he wasn't a goner after all that he proposed.

Well, I ended up back in the hospital Monday. When I got out of the shower, I developed a large hematoma and pain in the grin and thought I was going to pass out.  Called EMS to take me back to the hospital. I got admitted and they found a pseudo aneurysm   from leaking of the artery at the cardiac cath site. Found that on Tuesday, went to have it sealed off with Thrombin on Wednesday, and got released home today after follow up US today.  Can't do any driving, walking up and down stairs or lifting anything heavy for 2 weeks   And have to frequently sit back with my legs elevated.  I'll have to look at goings on here over the next few days as I had over 360 QCA emails, plus face book.   This all has certainly wiped me out and my hemoglobin is low so that's not helping either.    Ginny
