Today, when I held 2 fingers up in front of Sam's face and asked him to tell me how many fingers I was holding up, he couldn't tell me.. I guess it's time for him to get a haircut!
This is a picture of my unfinished challenge quilt. It is finished now and I won FIRST PLACE in my guild challenge. I just don't have a picture of it finished. I drew up this little cartoon girl because I couldn't choose just ONE book that is my favorite.. I decided to make "me" carrying a stack of books and then I could quilt in the titles of my favorite books. I did that.. didn't get far though . I got it Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, "my precious", the Weasleys, a broom, "I love to read" . Anyway, at some point, I had to stop and take my machine out of the table for the Harriet Hargrave workshop. Then I was back to work, and tired. I knew I had a lot to learn and I felt I had messed it up. I just figured that I would finish it later. Then one night I remembered the most important thing about the workshop. The thing about PRACTICE, and quilting all of my finished tops.. So I sat down at my machine, turned on an evenings worth of shows and finished it. I will get some pictures of the quilting tomorrow. I just wanted you to see that I did finish it!
Here is my friend Kaye's. We had a tie for second place and she was one half of the tie. She made a piece with an image of our Twisted Stitcher group. I LOVE IT. And I voted for it.
The people in my group are just so creative. I would have never thought of this!
Well it's late. I'm going to be helping to put the guild raffle quilt together tomorrow. I'm so glad that I don't have to work!!
