I’ve been busily catching up. I had been asked by my quilt guild to quilt the raffle quilt. I started it 2 weeks ago, didn’t like the way the thread looked on it. My husband and I took out all the stitches. This took a week, working on it a few hours a day. Luckily I stopped when I had only made one pass with my long arm. It’s amazing how quickly you can put stitches on a quilt and how labor intensive it is to take those same stitches out. I reloaded this quilt and got it all quilted today. I decided to to an all over design because the quilt seemed so busy, the quilting wasn’t going to show up much anyway. I’m so glad it’s finally done. Now I can move onto a quilt that I’ll actually get paid for!
I’ve had a little helper since Wed. This is my fur-nephew, Henry. We got to babysit him over the weekend. He’s such a sweet, lovable dog. It’s been a little strange having a young, energetic dog in the house. Our dogs are old, and don’t move much. Henry, is Mr. Happy. I love him.
I got to take a class yesterday to learn freezer-paper piecing. It was fun to learn something new, and I got to hang out with my friends which is always nice. This is what I accomplished during classIt will be a small wallhanging when it’s finished. I’m hoping to get this finished soon, but I may have to wait until summer, when I’ll have more time to work on my own stuff.
