Put a dent in it

I never left the house from when I got home on Friday until this morning except to step outside and get the mail. I only opened the curtains enough to have better light to quilt. So after quilting most of the day Saturday and Sunday, I am now 46% done quilting the Harley quilt. That is putting a dent in it for sure after having a slow start! I have the two columns on the right and two shirts at the top of the center column quilted.

The next two shirts are going to be the hardest to quilt since they are in the center.

My machine is acting a bit strange. I will be quilting along and all of a sudden the needle speeds up even though I never pushed the food pedal any harder. The needle slows down again then goes fast. I thought it was the foot pedal so I hooked up my other pedal, but once in awhile the machine would get wacky. I found that if I turn the machine off then back on it eventually quits this. I guess I am going to have to take it in for a checkup.

By they way, my cold is almost gone. This one only lasted two weeks versus the one I had last October which lasted a month and caused me to miss the Ray LaMontagne concert. I attribute the shorter cold to drinking this Super Exlier everyday. I started drinking this in February and have noticed that I have been sleeping better and I am not as tired as I have been. It's not cheap, but since I feel better it is worth it!

Good for you all that work. Hope you got a little walking time in too. That Elixer looks interesting

I'm glad you're feeling better. That's a fair size chunk you got done and it's looking good.
