WiP Wednesday - Knots and Piles edition

My machine separation anxiety thankfully was only a 24 hour ordeal. Now I'm on the hunt for stickers to properly welcome it back home.
And a name.

I'm hoping with these updates it won't break on me again. Or that it'll magically transform itself into a Horizon.

I won't hold my breath.



Present for M - AKA The Project that Broke my Machine

Mario - Close Up

Mario - Full Shot

I highly doubt I'll be using Quilter's Grid again. Luckily I have two more samples from Pellon and Sulky of products to help me out with pixel quilts. After the terrible experience with the Grid, I'm really looking forward to the other products.

Also in this picture is the fabulous indoor line my husband installed for me as I was out running around to get my machine fixed. Best part is that it's portable and he installed hooks on other walls in the house and on the deck outdoors. "So that I have different light options." 

Love that man. Love him. The line hooks also double as canvas holders so I can start taking pictures for my etsy store. 

Best present ever. And it wasn't even a holiday. 

Makes me want to shop for cute clothes pins to hang blocks too. I'll add that in with my sticker hunt.

Scrap Vomit cutting

When I thought my machine was going to be out all week I moved my scrap vomit cutting to my desk. Now I've gotta clean it all up to set my machine up again.
