Oh NO! No sewing machine...

This has been a busy week as I have been doing both my old job and my new job. Friday I moved into my new private office with my own keys! It was a lot of work, but I love my new space. There are four blank white walls, so plenty of room for new quilts. I finished up a old UFO top of t-shirt quilts from Mt. Rushmore and got the back ready to quilt Fri. night. Then on Sat. night I worked on my purple Happy Hour quilt top. I planned to sew it together and be ready to quilt it, but I was too tired. I finished sewing the blocks in to a top on Sun. and then I put the t-shirt quilt on the frame. I was practicing Red White and Blue stars and loops on it and all of a sudden my needle break and I went OH NO! I got an E1 error on my machine and anyone who has a 6600 and has experienced an E error and it doesn't reset by turning it off and turning it back on, knows it's not good news. So today my machine went to the shop at lunch. I'm hoping it's just the fuse they think it is and hopefully they have one in stock. I'm going to be so upset if it takes very long to fix it. I have three quilts ready to go on the frame and another one that has to
be done by the end of the month! Here's a little preview of the border on a quilt I'm working on.

This weekend I started helping my MIL make a lap size Jungle Fever quilt. It's a kit of a variety of Asian prints and will be very pretty when she gets done. We're doing 6 blocks a night, so it's not too overwhelming and she can see the finished blocks. There are five different cuts with 6 blocks each.

We need an update on the machine. I sure hope you have it back and have just been too busy quilting to let us know. There's nothing worse than a sick machine.
