Need a Medic - STAT!

My machine is officially on the injured list.  The motor just froze up on it, so time to arrange for it to visit the sewing machine doctor.  I'm a bit sad because this means no sewing for awhile, but after speaking to my lovely Mother tonight, she reminded me that I have a serger and I could always drop the knives and fiddle with it to see if I can get a 1/4" seam, it will work to finish sewing all the strips together for my next project until my machine is fixed.

Here's the project that I was working on when my machine crapped out.  It's the Let's Strip It, Majestic Mountain Quilt from 3 Dudes Quilting.  I saw a project that a fellow Raveler posted on a forum and thought it looked pretty cool.  I've had this jelly roll of heart themed fabrics in my stash for awhile so I decided to use that.


The first set of strips is sewn, but then the machine pooped out.


I was lucky though to finish a few projects before machine meltdown.  I finished the next block in the Celebrate Christmas QAL.  I was up early this morning and it took me about 3 hours to complete.


I also sewed the border on my blue batik quilt.


And finally, I made a little Halloween themed project bag for my knitting.  My friend Charity was kind enough to share her pattern with me.  Overall I'm happy with how it turned out.
