Quiet

It’s quiet here tonight. Adam and his family left after supper and we’re sitting here listening to music. Finn is napping at my feet – it’s hard work entertaining  3 and 7 year old children but he did a good job! They both love dogs and so do Adam and Lindsey. 

At the swim club. 


I also quilted a little yesterday before they got here. Does it surprise you when I do a pantograph right over applique?! I told Mom that I was going to quilt a panto on her queen size quilt if it wasn’t too big to use the laser light. For me, the quilts where my thread will blend well over the entire quilt are always good choices  for pantographs or overall freehand especially since I hate trying to figure out how to quilt inside appliqu├ęs. 


This is one of my favorite blendy threads too. It’s a Permacore thread that runs well in my machine. This top will get finished tomorrow!

    Love the quilting and the pantograph looks great.

    I like seeing the pictures of Adam’s family since they don’t seem to visit as often and I really don’t have concepts of them as they travel through your life and this helps. The pictures show such beautiful and engaged little ones and Adam and Lindsey are full of smiles.

    Mother Goose is what my long arm quilter uses on a lot of things. I’ve been using a similar color on some small quilts that I’ve done on my regular machine. Those neutrals really do blend so nicely.

    Bet Finn loved the attention he got but is probably worn out from the excitement and extra play.
