Foiled by default....OMG

I have the OMG quilt pieced and sandwiched.  Next up for quilting, when a welding joint broke on my quilting machine.   BAH HUMBUG!  (My new bad word).  Good thing it is still under warranty and they are shipping out the parts in about a week.

So that gave me time to start on one February's OMG.
But I'm going to tack on a surprise with this.
And a give away as well. 

Cute fabric but needs some pizzazz.  I'm thinking on it.

Hope every one made their goals this month.
Blessings to all.


  1. Oh No! What a bummer! Will you be able to fix the part on there yourself? I love that fabric with the elephants. It will be so cute in a baby quilt.

  2. I would have said something just a tad more colourful than 'Bah Humbug'!! As a matter of fact I say a lot more colourful words than that over my sewing machine on a nearly daily basis. I love that elephant fabric - the polka dotted ears are absolutely precious.

  3. Oh buggar hope its up and working again soon for you Tonia and wow love those cute fabrics you are using ,it will be a beautiful baby quilt my friend xx

  4. 'Bah Humbug' is very restrained of you Tonia... I hope you're back to the stitching really soon!

  5. Bummer on the machine. Thanks for linking up with OMG.

  6. Holy cow--that's pretty scary! My machine is so old, there probably are no replacement parts around for it--lol! Hope everything is fixed up soon!

  7. My long-arm is broke I agree Bah humbug! I too got a jump start on my feb. OMG.

    1. Forgot to mention I love your elephant fabric!

  8. I had no idea that a machine could break like that! Thank you for sharing now I will take a page from your book if it ever happens and, what?, simply order a new part! Love it.

  9. Love the elephant and the words, so sweet!
    Sorry to hear you’ve had problems with your machine. Hope it’s soon fixed!

  10. I hope your machine is sorted out soon. That elephant fabric is adorable :)

  11. Oh no! I hope your machine is up and running again soon. That does put a kink in a finish. I love your baby bears and the coordinating fabric. Looking forward to your pizzazz. That is always the hardest part for me, well, that and choosing borders.

  12. Hope you sewing baby gets fixed quick! Just made 1st great grandbabe quilt for friend, sew much fun!

  13. Oh no! I am so sorry to hear about your machine, but whew! What a blessing to have it under warrenty. I look forward to seeing your extra pizzazz {{smiles}}

    Hugs to you!
