So, after getting back from the Machine Quilter's Getaway in Trinidad, CA, I have been busy...
Playing Evony, sewing, avoiding practicing on the new longarm (more on that later), playing Evony, watching TV, reading, playing Evony.
I did finish my first rag quilt and took a class on One Block Wonder quilts - not quite finished, but the strips are sewn, now just have to sew them all together.
Here's my rag quilt, which I call 'Kitty Corners'.
And my OBW (the strip along the bottom is the original fabric):
This weekend I'm taking a class on Heirloom Machine Quilting from Harriet Hargrave. So, the rest of the week will be prepping for that class.
Oh, and here's my 'quick star quilt' from Jan Krentz's book. I made this on a quilting cruise I took last April.
I've been kinda depressed of late, which is why I haven't practiced on my longarm or updated the blog. I hope to pull out of it and do more soon. The leak in the upstairs plumbing, gophers on the lawn, broken dryers... sometimes it all seems too much. Why me?
Today I am grateful for friends. If I didn't have Debbie and Kathy and Marlyn, and yes, even Joe, I think I'd go out of my mind.
