So if you're bored looking at circles and my process, plz feel free to bypass today's read!
Another 'blog mate', JILL (ha, got it right didn't I, Jill!) over at The Quilt Rat posted on using sticky dots to mark her circles. Jill was filling in the area around the circles with free motion quilting. You can read about and see her beautiful quilting here.
I got thinking of some other design for one of my patchwork circles and thought, I'll use Jill's suggestion!
The circles worked perfect to stitch around! A great tip...thanks (again!) Jill.
I worked on these circles and filling in with stab stitch while watching our Tiger's win to advance to the World Series!! Now that's a good thing!!!
Yesterday I met my friend Joan, who lost her hubby this past summer, for a lunch at Olive Garden! We really had a nice visit and I'm looking forward to meeting her again before we head south. Joan is a wonderful artist, working in oils and acrylics. I'm going to her home on our next visit so I hope to 'remember' to take my camera and some pictures of her art.
I also stopped at the bead store and picked up some Tila beads and clasps I had on order. I want to make a gray/black Tila bracelet and now I can put the clasp on my Tila bracelet I made in August. I had to order the 6 prong clasp so now I can finish it!
Today is Dr. appt with my GB surgeon! I'm doing really well and gaining wt back! Can't believe I'm saying "yippee" to that! But my pants were so baggy I looked like the 'bag lady' wearing her bag!
