Thanks for the comments and emails about my post on COMMENTS. Not that I was complaining since I’m in the same boat – I try to keep up with other blogs and tend to read more than I comment also. Feel free to read without commenting or to introduce yourself – whatever makes you happy!
Happiness for me is working on a HeartStrings quilt
Despite sleeping very late this morning after staying up all night I still got a good day’s work done. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to walk downtown and mail off my Aunt’s quilt and get the HeartStrings Coins quilt done but thanks to Kinko’s being open 24 hours, I quilted first and then walked downtown to ship Nancy’s quilt to her. I was SO happy to send that one off.
I used a new pantograph on the HeartStrings Chinese Coins – I haven’t trimmed it yet so I’ll have to share a photo tomorrow but the pantograph is called Leap Frog by Norma Sharp. It has a strong vertical component which is great for this quilt.
Keith’s out of town tonight so I’ll be working late again. I need to piece a back and load a quilt that’s a gift for a family member. I would like to get it quilted tomorrow so I can bind it when I get back from San Diego on Wednesday.
By the way, I forgot to mention what a pleasure it was to use my ironing board with the new cover. Next time I won’t wait so long.
