Zoey has finished a quilt the same year she pieced it!
I owe it all to my baby sister, Tammy. She quilted it on her long arm machine. This is the first quilt I have made that is machine quilted. There is a lot to be said for the speed factor of machine quilting. I was amazed to see how difficult it really is to use on of those machines. It takes an incredible amount of skill to machine quilt.
Thank you Tammy! You did a great job.
I worked on the binding yesterday between cooking for the party. It was my break time activity. This morning I finished the last side.
I put it on the back of a chair in the family room. It joins my first snowman quilt that I made a number of years ago. Now I have a "snowman corner".
Well, off to wrap my "white elephant" gifts for the exchange tonight and to scrub floors and do an all around tidying up. Then I have to go find the linen and skirting for my buffet table, make a lettuce/fruit salad, wash the glasses for the beverages, find & wash 12 soup bowls, get the silverware arranged, ....oh, my goodness,I have a ton to do....what am I doing blogging???????????
I will tell you all about the party tomorrow. I am not the least bit stressed. I thrive on this sort of activity!
Bye...............Hope you are all having as great a day as I am!
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
