Bon Jovi was absolutely amazing – best concert I’ve ever been to. Kid Rock opened for him and then Bon Jovi played for 2 1/2 hours straight. We were on our feet from the minute he came on stage until he left. When Jon smiles, my heart just melts – he’s so damned cute!
I made this quilted panel for my friend Onalee for her birthday. An unusual gift to give in July, but at least this way she will have it for the Christmas season. She loves little cartoon mice so when I saw this, it had her name written all over it.
I quilted it with metallic thread and I must admit I was nervous as I’ve never used metallics before. Tilly handled it like a dream and I had absolutely no problems. Onalee loves a bit of bling, so I embellished it with crystals.
I’ve been working on these appliquéd embroidered blocks.
I have 11 of them done – just one more to go then I think I will alternate them with some 9 patch blocks and make a little quilt out of them.
I don’t know how people have their embroidery machine going on one table and manage to get anything done at another. These little guys had about 30 thread changes each so they seemed to demand my full attention.
