Quilting The Eagles

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

Yesterday I finished the quilting on the eagles and now I need to start the sky; skies are my least favorite thing to machine quilt! So I put it off for tomorrow. Today..


Usually I don’t do puzzles in the summertime, but this year August was pretty much an unusual month and we have done several! This one was different! A sunflower in the shape of a sunflower so that it needed to be worked from the center out.

Getting Better!

I finally went to the Dr and got antibiotics and a serious cough medication and am happy to report that I am feeling much better. I have not done much of anything though so there has been little of interest to discuss here.

There have been a few quilts shipped including two to the MidAtlantic Quilt Fest ( “In The Bleak Midwinter” and “Longhorn Splashdown”) and next week  ‘The Merchant’s House” goes off to AQS in Lancaster. “Harrier Hunting” has been juried in to IQF’s Celebrate Spring and will debut in Cincinnati and travel for a year. I had an email nibble about purchasing it this morning but am not sure how serious it was!

In the meantime about all I seem to have the energy to do when I am not sleeping, is reading, TV, occasional bookwork and jigsaw puzzles! Here’s the third one since Christmas:
