As some of you may, or may not know, one of the primary ways I earn a living these days is by making mantillas. What's a mantilla? It's a veil. Nope, not a wedding veil. These are made for women who wear them to church on Sundays - usually those who attend the Latin Mass. Also, if you're going to the Vatican and are fortunate enough to have an audience with the Pope, you'll need one.
Anyway, with quilting and this and that intrusion into the regular pattern of my life, I am soooo behind

We had decided to let Shimano live her days in contentment--and besides once easy dog, one cat, four rabbits, and five horses is plenty!

I'm going to iron tonight and maybe cut it up. I'm going to put some squares that are left over from the top in the backing piece so that will take me a while because I want to line them up with other squares in the top. I may not start quilting until next week, depending on how long the back takes me to finish.
This is so much fun working on this quilt. I'm having a blast and staying out of trouble.
Hope everyone is having fun with their projects.
I can't say enough good about Nolting's customer service. Yesterday as Kevin was attempting to change out the needle in the FunQuilter, the head of the screw holding the shaft completely snapped off (due to too much force used by said quilter!). Anyway, we took the machine up to Hiawatha today, and their customer service is second to none. Dan Novak is the head wrench in the shop. He and his crew all were extremely helpful and fast....they had the machine ready to go home in no time.
Moedeenie (aka Maureen) pointed out the crocheted bicycle frame cover on the front of the latest Joann mailer. It is hilarious!
I told her that it reminded me of the Purple People - Adam and Eve Purple - who used to run a famous community garden in NYC. They used to ride around on bicycles that looked like that except all purple with many decorations. Here's a link to a YouTube video if you're interested http://youtu.be/-VfBvdzgQxY
We were kindred spirits, I guess. When
What have I gotten myself into?
Chele, who runs the doll quilt swap announced that she is ready to "retire" as hostess. Since this is one swap that I really love, I didn't want to see it go.
Starting in March, I will be the new hostess.
I am looking for a contemporary pieced quilt of nesting hens. I saw it on Ebay but on auction and it disappeared too fast for me. It was titled "Settin Pretty" Farm Quilt and was a wall hanging.
