It’s November!! Already!!!!

Wow, how time flies! It will be the holidays before you know it. And with all THAT comes the new year! And the new mystery!! Woohoo!!! Of course, if you are like me, you have a million and one things to do before that gets here. It has been a busy time already……closing up the “camp”, putting the flower gardens to bed for the winter,  mulching endless leaves and harvesting the apples, squash and anything else of value in the vegetable garden.  I did find time to do some quilting though. I always try to squeeze some of that in, OF COURSE! I finished a couple small UFO’s, made a tractor pillow for my new to be grandson and this week I pounded out a baby quilt for a baby shower tomorrow.

2015-11-13 10.47.42Now that the weather is getting colder I’ll be able to spend more time inside and hopefully getting more accomplished.  I’ve played with a couple of scrappy ideas that I’ll share with you when I have something to show.   I’m still working at doing machine quilting but I think it’s a losing battle.  Anything more than stitch in the ditch, that dreaded meander or echo stitching just doesn’t measure up.  I know……practice, practice, practice.  Bah Humbug!  Give me a needle any day!

    Love what you have done despite how busy you have been. I know what you mean about machine quilting I keep practicing but the only time I feel what I have done looks half way good is when I rent the long arm at Jackie Lynn’s. I seem to have much better control on the big machine instead of trying to move my quilts around on my domestic. Hope to pick out fabrics from my stash for your mystery quilt this weekend.

    I understand, my last attempt at machine quilting, I picked up my seam ripper and ripped it all out! good thing I had only quilted about 1/4 of one block.
