Best of luck or worst luck ever

This weekend welcomed in February and along with it another sinus infection. I am most miserable when I get sick like this and find it nearly impossable to accomplish most things. Luckaly for me I have wonderful quilt helpers when I did feel good enough to work on my ongoing projects.
As long as I was willing to work around them and pay the occasional petting toll I was alowed to have my project. I worked on the paper piecing project most of the weekend but I am hoping to finish up my t-shirt quilt I have been collecting the elements on for the last year.
(again with the helpfulness Mr. O'Maley). I realized I am one shirt short, so this project gets pushed to the side again but this will be easily remidied soon. I did manage to finish up the pp top and now only need to add the boarders.

I couldn't get a good picture of the whole top so I broke it into 2 pictures. I wanted to see how it would fall on the bed -- just about the right size.
As for my luck situation -- the tax finance issue is still prevelent. Thoes of you that have been reading my blog for the last few weeks know that I am looking for a featherweight machine or a good deal on an embroidery machine. I had all but given up on these options at this time and last week I went to High Point for a dental apt and stopped in Dragnfly Quilt shop. While I was there I asked about featherweights and if they knew of anyone that was looking to sell one (this shop does not sell machines but I thought they might know someone for me to contact) -- she didn't know of anyone right off but suggested that I try a machine shop in Kernersville. Off I go -- and low and behold not only did he have one that was in good shape but it was a white one waiting to be serviced before sale. The deal wasn't a bad one but it wasn't something that I could do at this time.

Blog Hop Hugs and Kisses is coming up soon and I need to start working on finishing up that pink quilt I made a few weeks back but first I think another nap is in order the antihistamines are kicking in. Not a super productive weekend but I am happy with the progress that I was able to make along with these goodies that I made this weekend since I was home.

As always -- Happy Quilting
