DWM Jan 4, 2016
At first I wasn't sure I was going to like the mystery with my color changes, but now with a few more blocks made I think it will be fine. It is just going to have a totally different look. I really like her color selection too and maybe one day I will do it again using those colors.
I quilted this one on New Years day using swirls. I had been drawing and drawing swirls but still wasn't happy with them. When I got this little one loaded I thought just go for it and try the swirls. I have to say I can quilt them better than draw them. Of course they are not perfect and I learned a lot about starting and stopping them, but I am happy with the outcome.
I also quilted this little trip around the world. Still practicing the daisy pattern. I added the binding to this one yesterday as well. Now I have a couple of items for those times I just want to sit and prop my feet up but still get something accomplished.
I have been wanting an embroidery machine for over a year but after I got the long arm just didn't think it would happen. Then about a month ago the sister of my best friend in high school came in the store and she tells me she bought this machine without realizing that it was not a sewing machine too. It was the exact model I had been looking at. So yesterday I just took it off her hands. It was brand new still in the box. I have unpacked it but that is as far as I have gotten. I can see I will have to do a lot of reading and learning. This is almost like a whole new language. Hope I can handle it.
Meanwhile happy stitching,
