GoodMonday morning, I am happy to report that I was able to get my 15 min of sewing in this am before work, Yippee. I am not an early bird but thanks to a little bird I was up before the clock went off. Woodpecker on the gutters. Helppppp. What should I do? He woke me up Sat. too. That was ok since I wanted to get up early to sew. I went to bed late last night 1:15 am. I took the Mother's day nap that everyone kept telling me too.
The quilt that Kimberly was covered up with in the Mother's day post, was calling my name. I made a little mistake on the batting. I let a friend get me a wool batt when she went to the Maryland Fiber fair a few years ago. Well the batt must be for a comforter. Real fluffy. I started hand quilting with reg. quilting thread and was having problems with my stitches. So I changed to #8 pearl cotton. I am also using the stab/stick method. The rocking motion on that batt just doesn't like me. I also have been nursing a bad tendon in my wrist. With this stitch I don't move my wrist and I can get my stitches even. Since I am using the pearl cotton the quilting is looking like trapunto. Kimberly loves it and so do I.
No I don't live on the beach, a girl can dream can't she? I absolutely love water it centers me and gives me such peace. Anyway this was the sun coming up at Myrtle beach a few years.
