Tippy's in the hospital

Tippy (my Pfaff Tiptronic) is in the sewing machine hospital.  I broke her :(  I think I didn't get the bobbin seated properly and when I went to sew, I threw her out of timing horribly.  So, her hospital bill will be at least $130, ouch.  Hopefully they won't need to replace any parts........

I was hoping that I was going to have the WeePlay quilt done for the Blogger's Quilt Festival, but now I'm not so sure!  I can't do free-motion quilting well on my back-up machine because it doesn't have a ''needle down'' feature :(  Well, it does, but you have to push the button everytime you want the needle to be down.  That won't work.  Tippy has a feature where you can decided when you stop if you want the needle up or down.  My back-up doesn't have that feature :(  So, I have to wait to finish the quilt until next week when she's back.......
