Sunflowers #9 and #10

Sunflowers #9 and #10

My machine was in the shop because it quit sewing. I picked it up Saturday.  Friction ring, feed dogs and thread guides were replaced.  Then it was cleaned, oiled, tuned up.  Now it's almost like a new machine.  Since the month seems like it's about half over I thought I better work on my One Monthly Goal  (OMG) and make two Sunflowers. Now I can mark that off the list. 

While the machine was in the shop I did a lot of fabric cutting both with scissors and with rotary cutter and also did some hand quilting which seemed to cause some problems with my fine motor skills.  So I laid around and read and browsed seed catalogs. 

My sewing machine and fingers are working now. 
I THINK life is pretty much back to normal.

Glad to hear things are returning to normal. Losing fine motor skills is a bit scary! The sunflower blocks are interesting, the point almost look curved. A bit of an optical delusion, I think :)

I was wondering where you were. I'm glad they could fix your machine and that you're back in business!

I was starting to worry about you! Glad all is well now with the sewing machine. Such a bother when they don't work!
Love those sunflowers, as usual. I pulled out mine the other day and auditioned some backgrounds, but haven't gotten any further with the project. Your blocks are always a good inspiration, though! (Now I just have to finish a couple of must-do projects before i can go back to the fun stuff!)

Welcome back - we missed you. Glad to hear you’re back to normal (and your machine, too). I know how Not Fun that is! xo

Nice work on your sunflowers!
And I'm glad your hands and machine are up and running.
I just figured you had sewn up 6 or 7 new quilt tops and
were just finishing hand quilting them all.
But you and your machine got a rest instead, that's a good
