a good day for Anglo-German relations
Kreiger and I are having a great day today. Since she came in from the garage (where she was unsuccessfully quilting on the frame) we've had a difficult relationship. I've not been too fond of her, her 'talent' for snapping thread and her general stroppiness was getting on my nerves. I'll say this quietly, so she doesn't hear, but I was beginning to think I might have wasted my money on her. *sigh* Not good. But, I left her alone for a few days, we both sat and sulked. I had a lot of fun with Nina Bernina, and we decided we were better than Kreiger, and that she couldn't be part of our gang anymore. I know, I know - infantile. Bitchy girls.
Well, it was time to get quilting again, so I took a deep breath and dusted Kreiger off. Determined to prove myself wrong and that she was worth the money. Guess what? She is.
Today we've been stippling a quilt that the husband decided (yesterday) I had to make for his friend's baby (who lives in Australia - I think I might be missing the last christmas mail day if I'm not super fast). And the only thing that's annoying me is that my stippling isn't too great, but that's me and not the good lady pfaff. We're getting on brilliantly. She's running like a dream, we've gotten through 3 bobbins already and we're only just over 2/3 of the way through the quilt. Don't tell Nina Bernina, but Kreiger makes quilting really enjoyable, that long throat is dreamy.
I think I'll be ready to brave the frame again soon.
(just in case you're curious - the quilt is made with flower sugar by lecien, some liberty print corduroy and some European florals)
