After an hour and a half of fiddling with wires in tight places, the new handles are installed and they work!!!!  Now to tackle that pile of tops that have added up!
 And the churn dashes finished out smaller than I remembered (only 8" not 12"). Even with sashing, it willl still be too small so I need to make some more-8 more, in fact! 
 Plenty to keep me busy!


  1. It is so good to know how to fix things yourself. Sending out or having workmen in is getting SO expensive.

    Now you can play with fabric all day long if you want!

  2. You and Bill make an impressive team with repairs and adjustments.

  3. I like your churn dashes...truth be told it's one of my favorite blocks. Have fun with your new handles!

  4. Those blocks are so cool. I really like them and I'm impressed at you fixing your own equipment. You are amazing.
    Blessings and hugs,

  5. I love that churn dash quilt! I know the satisfaction that comes with fixing something. I just fixed a stopped up toilet. I could not figure out why the new basement toilet wouldn't flush because no one uses it. I tried every trick I knew for days. I finally used a skinny hair removal snake I use for the bathtub drains and found.......the top to my toilet brush. It must have slipped off while I was scrubbing one day. I had a good laugh.

  6. Yay for a fix on the machine! and wow - Love your churns!!!

  7. congrats on fixing your long arm! and your churn dashes are fun even if a little smaller than you remember.
