Yesterday I didn't get any sewing in - too many errands! But today I definitely put in my hours. I did the ditch quilting on an entire large quilt. It still needs plenty of free motion work and a bit of my perle cotton quilting.
I also decided on a background for another quilt and pinned hexies in place on it, ready to appliqué.
So what about Cooper's mouth? I find the strangest things in it! Here he is above posing with Mickey, who has come to love this lug very much.
Let's play a game. Which of the following do you think I've found in Cooper's mouth in the last 24 hours?
1. A quilt magazine that I did not give to him
2. A quilt
3. A kitchen cabinet pull (still attached to the cabinet)
4. A stool handmade by my father
5. A doorstop (still attached to the wall)
6. A bag of Knock Out Rose food
7. A broom
8. A visor
9. My neck pillow
10. A shirt
11. A TV remote
12. My book
13. A potted plant
The answer? All of the above! The only thing he destroyed was my book:
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.
