I GOT IT!!


















I finally caved in and got me the HQ Sixteen. There is a real learning curve with it but as with everything these days. The first picture is of a pantograph I've been practicing on.

Storm of the year



Wow we are having the storm of the year!! Here it is almost April and this has to be the worst storm we have had all winter!! A snow drift in our backyard is unheard of but the wind blew while snowing today and wow!! It is now ZERO out there!!! Think I'll go crawl under my electric blanket!!!

Miscellaneous

Mile a Minute table runner I made at Sew Saturday with our quilting club.



40th anniversary quilt I made for my friend in England. The bargello was a class I took but
I didn't have a good enough contrast in values and one of the greens had orange and yellow flowers in it and when finished it looked like paint blotches so another UFO laying around.

Misty's quilt




This was a quilt I made for my daughter called Turning Twenty. I should have renamed it turning 30 because she got it on her 30th birthday/Christmas December 23. I made her pillows and pillowcases to match.

Paperless paper piecing



I've been trying to get some of my UFO's FINISHED!!
Paperless paper piecing was an online class I took. I made all my blocks but never sewed them together because I didn't care for the purple and orange. I did finish it but it's still too bright for my liking. The technique was really fun. I used my embroidery machine to make the center design.

UPDATES






Everyone keeps telling me I need to update my blog, it has been a long time!!! But I've been busy..........see....................Learning to weave. It's so relaxing and I love doing it.
