quilting on Dream15 without (broken) stitch controller - not my best work - ruler work on squares, random swirls on borders


I broke the stitch controller when I moved the machine to a different room. Totally my fault. I called the store where I purchased it, Quilt Sampler in Springfield MO, and Brad had the part I needed and shipped it. I got it by mail in four days. I have installed it, with a minimum of cursing, but don't have my next quilt ready to go so that I can test it.....

I miss my brother

Image
My brother, Kermit Day passed away very suddenly in January. He was a joy to be around. He wrote me lovely long letters, and showed me one of his favorite places to visit - Johnson's Shut-ins in central eastern MO. As a nurse, he used to go on medical missions, and learned some Spanish so that he could talk with his patients better.
