Isn't the scarecrow sweet? I had it pieced last week and did the quilting yesterday. I used this variegated thread for the applique pieces and biege for the background. I was so stupid when I changed thread and forgot to check my tension and after meandering all of the background, and thinking I was done, the back was just a whole slew of eyelashes, lol. I had to tear it all out and do it over. I won't forget to check the tension again!!!
I think we're going to go to the casino in Cherokee today. They sent us a notice about some drawings they are having, and also gave us each a voucher for $10.00 cash just to get us started, lol. We don't go often, maybe twice a year, and we don't spend too much, but it is always fun, and we have actually won a few times. Wish us luck.
