I won a SMS giveaway!

In all my excitement of picking the winners to my SMS giveaway, I forgot to mention that I had been picked as a winner on The Crafty Nomad blog! I won an adorable Onsie...the size 0 on the left in the pic below.

I don't have children, but a friend of mine is expecting a baby girl in January and this will make an adorable gift to go along with the quilt I am making for her.

I have been working on the Storm at Sea quilt, it is slow going due to the fact that I machine quilt Queen & King size quilts on my Brother CS-6000i sewing machine. This is NOT made to work on quilts of that size. I roll, jam and wiggle the basted quilt to make it work...I dream of buying a quilter sewing machine with a wide throat, but haven't tested any yet. The main ones I look at are: Bernina 440 QE, Janome 6600 and also Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 870FS Long Arm. Those are my top choices so far. I've also been looking at the HQ Sweet Sixteen... but that is way expensive. Well they are all $$$ I'll keep shifting and making do until I break my Brother LOL


  1. Congrats to you (&me). I won a SMS giveaway too from Australia.

  2. love love love the Janome 6600. GREAT machine, and the throat size is perfect for bigger quilts! I haven't gone bigger than a twin on mine yet, but there's no scrunching and bunching at the twin size. I could easily do a queen on it, and with a smidge of rolling and bunching, coerce it into a king :)
