Bunting, & A Sneak Peak At A Quilt

So I made this mini scalloped bunting today. I prolly whipped it out in 45 min, and I would have gotten it done a lot faster if my lame sewing machine wasn't giving me fits again. Correction: my lame needles! My machine kept skipping stitches and doing all sorts of crazy things so I switched the needle, then cleaned it out, and finally oiled it. If your machine is ever acting up try all of these until you get results, chances are its one of these. Well I will leave the brand nameless but I will say the biggest name in all of sewing has THE worst needles on the planet. This same thing has happened before and I was almost pulling my hair out frustrated because I couldn't figure out what was going on with my machine. A specialist in town figured it out and after changing the needle it worked like a champ. I guess this company isn't what it used to be in its golden years and has sold its name to someone else which is what I heard. And that my friends is why their product does not live up to their reputation anymore :( 
I'm done venting now. 
Well this bunting I did for my daughter because I now have playhouse fever!!!
Some people my husband knows moved into a house and there was a playhouse on the lot just falling apart and they have no children so they offered it up to my husband, who snatched it up right quick. He loves a good project, and I love him for it because me and our home reap the benefits. We haven't moved it up to our house yet but we will soooooon. I cannot wait, sorry dear followers of my Pinterest for your news feed being bombarded with playhouses, I just cant help myself, I am such a dreamer and imaginer. So yes I already made something for this playhouse that isn't even at our house yet! 
Until then it'll just have to do in my daughters room.

Here is a sneak peak at my daughters quilt. All that's left to do is the dreaded binding :(
