On the right you can see the fabric I cut for the NYD mystery quilt class with Cindy Roth of Longarm U. She gave us a simple quilt top pattern and we were to have it completed and on the quilt frame, ready to quilt. I, of course, was in Tampa, 450 miles from my frame, so I couldn’t participate on that day. And, of course again, I didn’t have time to even put the top together so I couldn’t even start on the quilting. I took this picture Sunday morning and then started sewing. I hope next week I will be able to show the completed quilt.
On the left of the wall is a paper piecing pattern I bought the first year I was quilting (2002). I love owls so I thought I would love doing the pattern but when I got it home and took it out of the package I was shocked to find that some of the pieces were ¼” square. Well, I folded up the pattern and there it stayed until I was cleaning the studio last week. I have decided that I am going to try to make this pattern this year, a little at a time. It will all go in a bin and I will try to work a little on it every week and we will see how I do.
No pictures of me today. I still look like someone socked me in both of my eyes and I have gotten tired of looking at them. But I did want to share this photo.
Today DH brought home chicken and Abby was doing her best to encourage him to share. Isn’t she cute? And, too bad, it didn’t do any good.
