DH Mike is watching the Jets/Ravens game and I'm sitting next to him on the sofa listening to Pandora Radio. I've got it on QuickMix and it's going back and forth among classical, pop, Christmas, Irish, and classic rock. I'm on the laptop, reading blogs by longarmers, appliquers, and art quilters.
Who could ask for more? Go Jets!!

Sept/Oct hopes and dreams.

This is what I bought last week. It's all Kaffe Fassett fabric. I'm hoping, as well as getting one of my own quilts quilted, to start on this quilt. I'm also working on a Karen Kay Buckley and an applique BOM from this quilter's blog. Am I insane? Probably but I like to work on more than one project at a time.
Another hope/dream I have is to be a better daughter for my Mom. I'm an only child and she's 91 years old. I want her to be happy for however long she has.

Quilitng the quilt

I have an advantage here. I'm a longarmer, and I quilt for others. I won't plug my business but if anyone has questions about this way to finish a quilt, I'd be happy to answer them. My goals for these 2 months will be to quilt at least one of my own quilts. Here's a random pic of a client's quilt I did recently. In case you're wondering, she wanted a Scottish thistle.
