I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, but I sure am busy! I can't tell if I"m flying above the earth or dragging deep down in it! Things are just keeping me hopping. Above is my wool pincushion I finished. Got the sand in it and sewn shut! When I posted a picture of just the top someone mentioned they stuff theirs with fluff. Well I love the pincusions filled with sand. But this isn't normal sand. I use the really small fine decorator sand or sand for sand art. You can find it at Michaels and probably Hobby Lobby or JoAnns.
I also got my binding ripped off my quilt Darci quilted and got new binding on it! I decided to go with one of my favorite orangy red plaids and put it on. I like it much better.
And I FINALLY got one! I got a post card from Darcie! I can't belive these really go through the mail! It even has the postmark on it! Now is that cool or what! Course this one has her gorgeous quilting on it.
Last but not least my friend who owns a long-arm let me play on it yesterday. So I quilted 2 quilts for charity. The first I followed a pantogram of swirls. Don't look too close! But it sure was fun! And then the second was just a little quilt, maybe 40" x 40" so I did free hand all over it. Yes not show quality, but once again really fun to to play. I don't know how Bonnie or Darcie do it!
Wheh, can you tell I'm just a bit busy! And Tuesday child #3 turns 18. I"ve got a surprise dinner planned for her and 6 friends at a Japanese restaurant where they cook at your table - it is right down her line! So I'll be busy again for a bit this week.
