Bye Bye Beach

It was with deep regret that we packed up late Sunday afternoon and headed away from the beach and back home. It was kind of funny because I when leaving home for the beach I had regretted leaving the quilting I really wanted to do and now I was regretting heading home. I guess I just can’t be satisfied. However look how rested I looked at the beach.

This morning I was up and ready to get back to quilting. After a good cup of coffee and breakfast, I was off to the studio. I sewed the two parts of the backing together and appliqu├ęd the label to the back. Once that was done it was time to load the quilt onto the frame. Sometimes I forget how many steps there are to that but eventually everything was set and I was ready to quilt.

However, before I could get started DH called and invited me to lunch (Taco Bell). Well who could resist that? So, off I went.

The panto I am using is Siberian Iris from

After some auditioning, I decided on a lavender thread for the top: I want it to be seen but not to take attention from the fabric and piecing. All was going well until about 6 when I found that I had quilted a half of a row without any bobbin thread. At that point I decided it was time to rest and head for the house for some food, TV, and blogging.
