Where Do The Days Go?

I can't believe it's Sunday already! My longarm lesson on Thursday didn't disappoint - it was great and I learned a lot from Carol. We spent a lot of time playing on the machine with background fillers, some different feather techniques and continuous curve designs.

Not only that, but she made us a delicious lunch too! I really am in love with my machine. I quilted my rose flannel quilt yesterday and it quilted like a dream. I wanted to get a picture of it, but unfortunately my quilt holder is sleeping on the couch right now.

The best news of all, though, is we found 'the dress'! Sandra and I went shopping again on Friday and she found the dress of her dreams - her whole face lit up when she saw it on and she said she felt like a princess in it. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders as we were running out of places to go.

I don't plan on looking for my dress until closer to the summer when hopefully I'll be down at least another size or six.

I volunteered to quilt a Quilt of Valour for our wounded returning from Afghanistan. It arrived on Friday - it's a Maple Leaf block quilt - so I'm hoping to get it loaded and quilted tomorrow.

This doesn't seem like a very exciting post, but that's all folks!

Looks like you and your machine are getting along well!

Good for you taking a quilt of Valor to do.
