LAFF #23

Welcome to LAFF here at Richard and Tanya Quilts.  This is where you get to show off your finishes

I came home again to my wife showing off again.  She is now caught up and current with our beginners quilt along and she is doing a fantastic job.  Above is the first 6 blocks together, and below is the block that she did today.  They are looking amazing.

When I came home from work I checked tracking for UPS.  My new machine was suppose to be delivered tonight. but it was a no show.  So I spent the night trying too not look so sorry compared to my wife.  She is doing 1 quilt and I am doing 2.  I have the first 4 blocks of one quilt done and the first 2 blocks of the other done, so I am 6 blocks behind.  I was waiting for the machine to show up, when I refreshed the UPS tracking and it now tells me its scheduled to deliver on Friday rather then Thursday. My wife is now working nights, so I called her to let her know that it did not show up.  And she sprung the "News" and it was that when she took the full shot of her 6 blocks above she "Accidentally" dropped the sewing machine off the table onto the floor (she blames the Cat, which is probably true).  Since my new machine was not going to show, I grabbed the old one off the floor, where she left it and tried to use it.  It turns on and it made lots of noise.  Scraping plastic and all kinds of other good noises.  Long story short, I pulled all the screws out of it and popped the case back into place (never could figure out how to pull the case off) and it works just as crappy as it has for the last 2 weeks.  I can't wait until the new machine shows.

I did get one block done (so I am 5 behind now, lol) and two more cut out.  So I got some progress done today.

So my misery can only be fixed by your successes.  The most popular link last week was from Captain StitchyPants  It is a wonderful baby quilt.  Remember each linked up quilt gets you into the random drawing once a month for 2 Fat Quarters.  Thank you to all last week's linkups.

 Each link on LAFF enters you into a random drawing for 2 fat quarters each month. The winner will be picked the Thursday after the last Friday of each month.  The winner have their choice of 2 fat quarters from the 9 pictured. This picture will be updated with current selection, as the two with safety pins were chosen for June.   These are from my stash, but have no current project with their name on them.  Some of them are items I got from the shop hop, others are items that came with materials we bought, but did not make it into a project.

Thanks again for visiting Richard and Tanya Quilts and supporting  our quilting adventures.

So for the rules.

1) Who likes rules. Toss them out.
2) Add a link to your finish blog or where ever you show off your finishes (Not limited to quilts but I like them the most).

I finished a week at girls camp. Does that count? =) Rained the whole time! Love the way Tanya's blocks look together. You'll catch up and hopefully that machine arrived today!
