End of another week....
I've also been playing with free motion quilting...funny, when I do a practice piece my work isn't near as nice/good as when I'm really doing a 'legimite' piece! Strange, isn't it!
I had a small piece of black sateen so I sandwiched it and started some FMQ. Diane Gaudynski's had a blog post show how to FMQ Celtic Bubbles. Sure looked easy on her blog but just like straight lines I can't do circles either! Go figure!
Diane's post on these circles. She does such a wonderful post on explaining the process.
My black doesn't look black in this picture but it really is! I just started playing around with any designs I could think of. Again, I'm not very creative...but the piece, which is about 20" x 20" will make a nice background piece for small snap bags!
Anyway, the first picture above, i took yesterday when Carol, Peggy and I took off to Micanopy, Florida! And yes, we had dessert! Butter pecan ice cream! Micanopy is a very quaint town 25 miles north east of us. We went to Micanopy a few years ago and I thought it might make a nice day of it again. We arrived just around lunch time and after visiting a few of the antique and old book stores, we headed to lunch. Chicken salad sandwich's for Carol and I and a bowl of chili for Peggy. Food was good and then off we went walking through the town again.
So, next week is going to be as busy...off to the Freezer Restaurant on Monday with friends; Tuesday, lunch with a friend from the community; Thursday, off to Trenton with my Q Buddy, Susan, to visit one of our favorite Quilt shops, and lunch! Of course...lunch!!!

The photo in the center reminds me of one of Tara Donovans rubber band prints! It is so lovely!ReplyDelete
Sigh.....I wish my FMQ was even 1/10th as good as yours! Your post reminds me how important it is to practice....something I have been very lacking at so I only have myself to blame!!ReplyDelete
Your stitching looks real good to me! Love Micanopy. Have you watched Doc Hollywood? It was filmed there. It's more fun to watch it now that I recognize the buildings and some locations.ReplyDelete
