what i did yesterday

lo and behold my first ever meandering quilt job done on betty. or ever, no wait i tried it once before only it was worse on my pinto sewing machine that i had before this Cadillac of a sewing machine...most definitely need, NEED more practice, but this year i'm trying new things, even if i'm bad at them at first or every time. sitting where it belongs, i think it serves it's purpose and makes the table home-y looking.
i felt pretty crummy all day long yesterday, and the only good thing about it was that i had a pretty sexy low voice but it got lost with all the snot plugging up my nose. oh what too graphic? here's to a good night's induced with NyQuil sleep, no worries i'll wait till night time...maybe...

How pretty! I love everything about your room from the blue cabinet to the quilts. The pillows are tdf. If I didn't know it, I would say you copied it from a magazine.

You are much braver than I am... I stick with the straight x stitches... I am a little scared of meanering. It looks beautiful and love where the new home is. I hope you feel better!

Lisa said...

I like how you did the stippling on the outside and the simple x's on the inside section. Looks very nice!

You are amazing. I started to clean my bathrooms yesterday! But alas, they didn't get done! I am with you on trying new things this year, even if they are stinking at first. HOWEVER, the pillow the other day, and this cute number are not even remotely stinky. Don't expect the same skill from me!

Rachel said...

Wow! I think it turned out great. Your my quilting guru. I've always wanted to learn how to machine quilt. Maybe I'll have to find a tutorial somewhere online. :) Hint, Hint :):):)

You are amazing! Not only do you do these really cool projects, but you also find time to blog about them...something I only dream about. You are my hero.
