The obsessive collector!

70 pair of scottie socks -- I do buy duplicates in order to "save" a pair and wear a pair, but only one of each are counted in this picture. Just wait until I upload the 100+ pair of scottie pajamas!!

My new quilting machine & frame

Weekender 10-inch throat quilting machine and Hinterberg regular frame - poles are 72" in length. Practice fabric loaded -- still need lots of practice before tackling a real quilt!!

Sewing room & fabric stash

Just a few photos of my fabric stash -- notice all of the scottie fabric (and that's not even half of what I have collected!!) The middle & bottom pictures are of the stash that is currently in the closet -- not enough room in there for all of the fabric! :o)

Scottie Photos

This is our grand old man - Fraser. He turned 12 on 10/25/07. He is probably demanding his dinner!!
This is our onery scottie, Rona. She turned 3 on 10/19/07. The flash on the camera scared her!

Scottie baby quilt

This is a small quilt that I made for my boss's baby, who was born in October 2007. Done in 100% cotton fabrics, machine stitched and machine quilted. Visit Master Michael Robertson's blog to see photos of the little guy who received this quilt!
