Thimblebug and Nammie, your projects are absolutely amazing. Thim, I love the crayons. It is on my to do list.
Nammie, your applique design is fantastic. Did you design it yourself?

Good morning everyone. I love what you all are doing. And the patience to hand applique...

My plan for today is to work on the backing for the blue/yellow/white quilt. I don't have enough fabric for the back, so I will make a row of the star blocks and sash and border just like the front, and then insert it into the main fabric backing.

Debbie (applique), LOVE your work! Especially your fish and those HENS! How do you finish the edges on these beautiful pieces? Do you just leave them raw? I've only done a couple of applique pieces and am quite a novice.

I haven't looked through all of the projects ya'll are working on but the ones I have seen are wonderful and I hope you accomplish what you have planned!

I have finished a costume for my DGD's birthday. Now I am off to bind a quilt I started awhile back with Mystery Train Ride #3!

I love our virtual quilting weekends!

Sandiet, that's an adorable baby quilt. I love the fabrics you used.

Here is the charity lap throw I quilted yesterday. You might notice the pins around the binding. Still have to machine SITD to tack it down on the back... then it's done!

Sigh. I got the quilt with the annoying (constant breakage) thread off the longarm this morning. It took twice as long as it should have because of the stupid thread issues. Now I'm off to find a project in my sewing room. Lots of choices (binding, a couple small UFOs that appeared last week, or my current big quilt). I'm sure something will jump out at me Love seeing all your projects!

This morning I've been working with my Brother PE 770 doing some embroidering for St. Patrick's Day. I've had this machine a month and a half and this is the first time I've embroidered something with more than one color. Yeah me. I even figured out how to tweak the colors of designs in my software. Here is a picture of the legs of the leprechuan doing a jig that I'm working on right now. I'm embroidering him on a dish towel and the Erin Go Bragh! is embroidered on the opposite side of the same dish towel. This one goes to DD. I'll be sure to share the entire project once it's finished.
