    I am working on a customer quilt, using white thread on a white background. It is really hard to see where I have stitched, but, luckily my machine has a built in black light. To much fun. I hope to have the quilt off the frame to show tomorrow.

    I love the stitching your doing next to the basket. I'm sure the one your doing it for will love it.
