First and foremost, thanks for all the congratulatory wishes on the new book - Peggy and I are so excited. It's really fun to have a coauthor to share the fun. We are featured in the latest issue of AQS On Point - look for us!
Here's the backside of the quilt I'm machine quilting. Lots of straight lines. Sometimes they overlap. Fun! I've gotten to a good stopping point on this project. I think I'm about halfway done with the quilting (after about 10 hours of machine time so far.) I probably won't resume work on it for a week or so since I'm picking up my mom in Atlanta tomorrow to bring her here for several days. Looking forward to her visit!
We've also been enjoying having Daughter 1 and our SIL staying with us this week. There is a leak in their apartment and they haven't been able to stay there (hard to exist with NO water!) It's been lots of fun to have them around. Daughter 1 got a promotion at work yesterday - proud Mama, I am! And Daughter 2 successfully finished her finals today, finishing up her first year of Pharmacy School - proud Mama, I am! Lots of celebratory meals around here....
I thought some of you might get a kick out of this. This guy was in the check out lane at Hobby Lobby a few days ago. I'd love to know what his Momma thinks about his tattoo!
Speaking of tattoos, would you ever get a quilting tattoo? I read this interesting post about a group of women who decided to get tattoos while at the modern Quiltcon in Austin earlier this year. Interesting! But I think I'll keep my skin the way it is.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
