The only sewing taking place right now is my Layer Cake Quilt Along over on Chic n Clique … so I thought I would share a few pictures of Brooke.
The past weekend she went to Naka-kon here in Overland Park and each day I couldn’t wait to see her outfit. I missed her Saturday costume because I was at the longarm quilting class … and by the time she got home I was asleep.
The picture above was day one … the picture below was day three.
She looks like a doll in that blonde wig!!
I’m amazed at her face … I’ve had freckles since the day I was born … not really but it seems that way .. and I tried everything to remove them (as a child I tried ….. I’ve since realized they ain’t going anywhere).
Brooke has gone to these convention type things for as long as I can remember and I will never forget the first few … every step I took … my mouth was wide open … in shock! I refused to leave her there …. so I hung out in the lobby for hours (and hours)! I should make an album one day of all the pictures I’ve taken!! I even took my sister Kim with me once …. she and I had hours of pure laughter!! I don’t understand the whole world of Naka-kon but I respect that it’s one of Brookes hobbies LOL
She didn’t go as any character this year .. unlike last year when she was a Ninja Turtle (Brooke is in the back on the right side with purple accessories). These girls were very popular last year!!
Now to quilting for just a minute … for whatever reason my coughing returned last night and it was very difficult to sleep …. so I was on my laptop in bed … googling longarm quilting machines. The main reason for my search is I want to know bottom dollar how much money I need …. and in my investigation process I discovered that I can use a quilting Frame with a domesticated sewing machine. Which would save me thousands of dollars ….but … will it create more of a headache and should I just wait?
Before I buy something … I go through a process … I google it ….. I read reviews, I look at the competition and I ask questions from people that have one (yes I’ve sent two emails). We shall see what I discover!!
p.s Dave is sick again, Brooke woke up not feeling well, Chase was not feeling well (headache) but he’s okay now … this sickness just will not leave our house … grrrrr
