Quilt Away

The Usual Suspects spent a weekend away in a country cottage with a wonderfully cut off air to it - surrounded by lots of empty space, empty that is apart from numerous rabbits, a fox and a pair of green woodpeckers. I spent a good chunk of time working my way through the 222 stitches on my newly acquired Pfaff  to make a sample book for for future reference. On Sunday morning when I was finally sewing on a project it made a nasty noise and ceased to work. Thread is obviously caught up in its insides but the insides were not accessible without a specialised screw driver. Anyway last night the sewing machine man came to take it away to look at. I hope its OK as it's a beautifully engineered machine  and although there's still quite a lot to learn I know I'm going to love it - Pfaff Quilt Expression 4 , bought from a friend whom I know looked after it perfectly. Anyway here we are.
