And the battle is on.....

I showed pictures of my pin basting the French Braid quilt a couple weeks ago. Since then it has been draped over a chair in my sewing room..taunting me, daring me to start quilting it. Today, I took my weapon - my trusty ole faithful New Home Machine - and attacked my French Braid Monster quilt. I am proud to say, I am

winning! This faithful machine has its battle scars, which if you enlarge the picture, you will see. But not from pins and scissors and monster quilts, but from my sweet innocent looking Felicia...yes, she attacks my machine, biting and scratching. Now what is up with that?

But the machines of the world can relax, Felicia sleeps in her Rubbermaid bed. (Notice the window frame..that has felt the sting of her claws as well.)

What a funny little girl she is? Obviously, the machine doesn't feel threatened or it would have fought back!

I'm sure this is going to be a fabulous quilt. You seem to know what works, as does Felicia! I see a highchair in the background that looks just like the one my parents have at their home, it was mine when I was a baby. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt soon!

Keep up the good fight. I know you will win! Is your cat in the "dog house"? She would be if she messed with my sewing machine. She is a cute cat, but not that cute! LOL
