Joined a Blog Hop

I am participating in Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop from Plum and June. (which officially begins on June 9) I have been following blogs for a few months and thought this would be a good way to interact, learn and meet other bloggers.  Of course, I rarely do anything the easy way so I am jumping in with both feet.  I am already having trouble adding buttons, despite reading directions umpteen times and getting kicked off my own post.  This might be a case of "call the tech savvy sister!"

Since I am new, I thought I would give you an idea of where I sew and quilt.  Pardon the pictures, I am still learning!
Yes, I am using 2 machines! I switch back and forth.

This is my newest machine.  A Viking 875.

Here's a sampling of my stash.  It's actually under  my work table.

I'm working on several projects at once (Isn't that what everyone does?)  The center picture above is a quilt from Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison  - Gumdrops designed by Amanda Jean.  I love the quilt.  The quilting is labor intensive as I am doing bubble/cobblestone quilting that I am teaching myself.  What was I thinking!!!

I also have a few flimsies ready to be quilted.

And here are this weekend's finishes-

Gifts for my classroom volunteers
