*gasp* I’m here! I’m ok. Really!
Things got a little out of hand. First I got sick- caught what Gwen had the last time I posted and it took us both two weeks to feel better. Then I got busy- it was crunch time at work but everything went well. Next, I got lazy because I was tired from being sick and busy. And now we have come full circle and I’m sick again- spent Thanksgiving with strep throat:( We caught it early and I am now slowly recovering.
Despite the chaos and misery, there was some crafting going on. I’ll take the next few posts to catch you up.
Back in October I took a much-anticipated free motion quilting class. I was the only person there from Memphis proper- the rest were from suburbs or from north Mississippi. Most were more interested in talking than working and one was the know-it-all type that walked around giving unwanted advice. But I had a great time and did much better than I expected. The key was to use the machine at high speed but move the fabric slowly under the needle. Here are the results. Not too bad for a first try. I need more practice but this is definitely do-able.
Oh, and I finished the blue scarf too!
