My Pajama Quilter workbook arrived Tuesday and after trying to draw these flowers unsuccessfully, I quilted the echoed swirls on the 2nd of 3 HeartStrings tops I had on my list to do this week. I kept trying to draw the flowers and last night – I was finally able to do them well enough to give them a shot on the longarm (that was 2 days of practice – you’ll note that my whiteboard is MUCH smaller than the one Dawn recommends using but it’s what I have here).

While they’re far from perfect, overall I was pleased with the results. Dawn is such a good teacher!
Since I’ve been whining about my living room, I thought I’d share part of what we’ve come up with. This room is long and skinny and designed to be a living room/dining room combination. We’re skipping the dining room and are going to use it as one big living room. As you can see my furniture is VERY dark but it will do for now. We’ll look this weekend for a sleeper sofa or sectional to fill the other half of the room.
