Goodbye to my HQ Sweet 16...

I have loved her for the past 5 years. She's never given me a problem…but it's time to find a new home for her. Since we've lived in Auburn (2 years) I've only quilted 2 quilts on her.  I hate for her to sit here unused. I've gotten to the point that my favorite way to finish quilts is to stitch them in the ditch on my Bernina and then add hand quilting with perle cotton.

Yes, she's for sale. Someone is coming tonight to give her a test drive and maybe they'll take her home.
Now what am I going to do with that empty space in my studio? Any suggestions?

Here's mister Cooper, taking his morning nap. We have this large ottoman (60" square) in our living room. He love to sleep under it, though at 92 pounds it's a tight fit for him. He always sleeps with the toes on one foot curled under. See them? Sweet boy.

We have a busy week going on here. As most of you know, we live in a college town and football season starts here Saturday. The entire city is decked out in orange and blue. We love going to the games, though the weather Saturday is predicted to be iffy - probable rain. We'll survive!

Hexie love,


  1. You don't happen to live in DeKalb, ,Illinois with the fighting Illinoi? They are orange and blue!

  2. I will have also to come to a decision on my newly acquired Singer Vintage 301A--I just really don't like the feel of it--{sigh}...and I have an older White and Featherweight that I never use...perhaps LQS would be interested....hugs, Julierose

  3. If your person tonight does not take her home.. oh let us know.. twist twist
