Yes I’m still here. I am having hand issues still. It has now focused into my right hand & is a case of De Quervains tendinitis. I will have to call my pal Mindy & see if Pete can help, because it has been going on since Jan 4th, & isn’t getting any better. It’s interfering with everything.
On a more fun note, this quilt, that is featured in my header, is now in Allie Aller’s book, on page 64. I was very honored when Allie told me she was going to include it in her book, & a wonderful book it is! I’ve already bought 4 copies to give as gifts! I also showed it to Diana Bradley at Quilt Zone yesterday, so she is going to order some copies to sell in her shop.
I was teaching my Minimal Marking Free Motion Machine Quilting class.
Below are 2 samples that I demonstrated on. I like the #12 wgt. Aurifil thread , it shows up well against the black fabric.
Below are 2 cards I made this week. The Raven is for a friend who is in the hospital.
& the flowers for a childhood friend, who just lost her father. Both are needle punch with a small bit of quilting, on wool.
Last, I wanted to show you Broccoli, keeping my chair warm for me.
Next post, will be #600. 24 hours after I publish it, I will draw names for a prize. It will probably be some time next week! Until then, as my friend Sue Hausmann says, “Happy sewing!”.
