June 9th, really?

End of school has been busy for us...

My daughter performed in her ballet class's recital at The Scottish Rite Auditorium which was so much fun for the girls to be on the BIG stage....

We took a mini vacation to the Columbus Zoo and Water Park which was an enormous hit with our two...mornings at the zoo and afternoons at the water park? yep...they loved it.
(and I squeezed in a stop at Sew To Speak which is an amazing fabric shop...oh how I wish it was my local shop!!)

And throw in a garage sale, carnival, gardening, and general outdoor stuff you pretty much get an idea of where I have sewing machine was also serviced during this time.  How much do you pay for a service?  OUCH, mine was $60.  Is that the going rate?

Here is what I am working on at the moment:

A baby quilt for my co-workers daughter...due next week.  oh my.  And also need to make some pillow case dresses for the month of May and June for my bee, A Dozen Quilters (ugh, Ive never been late for my bee before!  I feel terrible!!)

AND...finally...I'm planning on joining Katie again this year for 100 Quilts for on thru to read the details, or click the button on my side bar.


  1. Get back to your machine already!!
    Yeah, I think $60 sounds average. depressing, isn't it?

    Such a cute ballerina!
    Happy summer to you and yours.

  2. You're lucky - a routine service for me (cleaned, timing checked, etc)is $100 here in Chicagoland.

    Love that little quilt start!

  3. Looks like you've been busy and having fun! And June! I can't believe it -- wasn't it April when I saw you -- WHERE did May go???

  4. I'm paying $120 so your service fee sounds pretty good. I hate letting it out of my sight too, but it has to be done.
