Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.(Philippians 4:8)

Another week ...

Hey ya all! Thank you for stopping in to visit
with me today!

Did you happen to see that Kelly from Charming Chatter
is back in the bloggihood??  She is one of the most
inspiring and uplifting bloggers it's been my pleasure
to experience.  Welcome back Kelly!!

Due to my lack of machine at Christmas time, I was
unable to complete many a present for friends and family.
One of those projects was a gift for my sister.  
Well, this week she has a birthday ... 
and I was able to make this for her:

Market Bag pattern from Sweetwater.

However, I sadly report that once again,
my new replacement Pfaff machine 
needs to be replaced AGAIN??!!!

The Pfaff rep says I must just be one of those unfortunate 
few that has a black cloud over my head when it comes to
machines.  While I appreciate more than words can say
the fact that I have a machine, I'd appreciate it even more
if I had a machine that I could depend on. 

Another day ... such is life ... So ...

I'm also sharing with you today the list of
Nancy Drew Get a Clue blog hop stops
for Monday through Thursday this week ...
brought to us by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt

Why knot Friday? 
Well, you'll need to come back on Friday to find out.

So, until Friday ... I wish you all the most wonderful week!


  1. Well... the bag is just wonderful! I'm sorry that you are having fits with your machine. Frustrating, I'm sure!

  2. You're kidding! Your sister's tote looks fabulous though;D
    I hope your replacement's replacement is up to the challenge.

  3. Wendy the 'machine-gobbler' .... Silly Girl!!
    The purse it beautiful! I bet your Sister will love it and appreciate the work you put into making it for her! Have a wonderful week!

  4. I cannot believe your machine is out again! I'm so sorry - it certainly doesn't speak well of the workmanship of Pfaff but it does say a lot that they are replacing it again. That kind of customer service would bring me back! You are such a talented stitcher/quilter Wendy that we are all missing your beautiful work when your machine isn't working. :( blessings, marlene

  5. What a beautiful bag !!! Good luck with your machine !

  6. That is just sucky about your machine. I hope the 3rd time is the charm and you can get back to having some serious seweing time. The bag is lovely.
