Friday I missed my friend's get it done class, and as my headache had finally gone away, I felt like I could do a little hand sewing. Even though I couldn't be in class, I was with them in spirit ...
I think I'll go look for a frame tomorrow. I finally feel like I can return to some normal things after Day 7 of my plague! I have weird leg pains ... Probably from doing nothing for 6 days. Things I am tired of:
Well, I'm never alone ...
Sophie is usually next to me or in my lap, especially if there is a quilt involved. She loves quilts and is a great comfort.
And then there's ...

Even though I wasn't busy sewing last week, I was busy longarming. I did two quilts ... Both for the same customer. She is a special lady and a prolific quilter. I have quilted more of her quilts than anyone else! First up was this scrappy quilt ...
I believe this is a pattern by Bomnie Hunter. Judy used up a lot of her scraps
... The only fabric she purchased was sashing, border, backing and binding. Way to go in stash busting, Judy'
I used Omni thread in top and bobbin in my favorite color, Bronco. It was free motion with a swirl and a star thrown in. I really liked the design.

I know I've been quiet but it's been because I've been busy! After 6 weeks of doing doing doing, it feels good to give myself permission to sit and do nothing now and then! My hubby is back at work as he had 2 weeks off for the holidays. He works for the school district ... Daughter is back to school ... I love having her home and miss her when she leaves.
I wanted to have a great stash report to set my new year right, and here it is:
Yardage In - 0
Yardage Out - 9 1/3 yards
Total - 9 1/3 yd out for the year
I did finish a quilt over the weekend (more on that later), and I used the 9 yards for backing and borders. I also put some binding on a very old quilt ... That was the third! Woo Hoo! How about you all? I hope you are getting into your quilting rooms and feeding your souls! Even a mere 20 min counts. I challenge you to do it for yourself. Please let me know!
Longarmed yesterday and at it again today. Trying to STILL catch up. Good thing I have the best clients in the world!!!
