Quilt challenge

I would love to win a new Janome sewing machine.  I test drove this unit at my local quilt shop...I really loved it.  I couldn't justify buying it.  But it really had some neat features...loved the knee lift.  I can always hope to win one.  I own a Janome 9700 so I really can't complain.

Pi Shawl KAL

following the Pi Shawl KAL...can't start my shawl until I get back home to Michigan. I ordered the kit and it is waiting for me when I get home grandson comes first!

I am still in New Mexico helping my daughter with the new grandson...the first grandchild and needless to say I am excited. And he is a doll...born at home on the 20th of July at 11:03 am weighing 8 pounds and 20 inches long.
heading home on the 24th but will be back in October for a few babysit while my daughter goes back to work. Finding babysitting is hard...on a waiting list on the AFB daycare center...9th on the list..not good.

This year has definitely been a different year...out of work, husband with multiple health issues and seeming to be extremely busy.
