Nothing special going on really, but I hate to go too long without posting, especially after I just cleared out my blog reading list of those who haven't posted for over 6 months, lol. So I thought of a few things to say.
I did finish another little quilt. I have had this top done for several years. I thought I would try custom quilting on my frame, but the Juki throat just isn't enough room to do any areas larger than about 6-8 inches square, and that it when your uptake roll is still real small. Plus, all the starting and stopping. I will do these on the Bernina in the future. But it's cute and now I have a wall hanging for next winter.
The theme for the block lotto was hearts this month. I made 4 and plan to make at least one more for myself in a 12" square for my little table top display from Ackfeld Wire. I love these. I was looking at the Celtic Applique that Carrie (go see her site) was showing on her blog, mine is a cheater. I just traced the whole thing and used wonder under. Looks good though. The picture is a little dark, guess I should have rearranged them. :)
And, after being a nurse for so many years, I developed a love for pens, then they went to all computer charting, but my pen love remains. So, I tried on of the Papermate Inkjoy pens they have been advertising on TV, and they are right, I love this pen!!! I tend to push down too hard when writing, so using the felty ones are like running my fingernails down a blackboard. You should try one of these, SMOOTH!!!
Hope everyone enjoys their day!!
