You may have noticed my blog moved ~ this will be my first post at GailLizette.blogspot.com. Please follow, or re-follow my sewing updates. I love getting all the feedback! There are many reasons for the changes, but that's a story for another day.
The PMQG All Day Sew that happened last Saturday. It was great, as usual ~ I started two pillow covers for my daughter using a new technique a saw on Elizabeth Hartman's blog: quilting as you go. I had a lot of fun trying different quilting patterns and practicing.
Here's a pic of the 2 unfinished pillow tops:
And here are some close ups of my favorite quilted areas:
Funny story too: After the All Day Sew, I went out to the parking lot to find my car missing! I called my husband and he came and rescued me and we made a police report as soon as I got home. At 3:40 that morning we get a call from the local police saying they found the car and if we can get there in 15 minutes, they won't have it towed.... so we jump out of bed and take a bleary-eyed drive to meet up with the police and our car. Turns out some guy had a similar key that worked in the door handle and he got it jammed in the ignition enough to get it started. So we were able to start the car and drive it home. The next day my husband was able to work the key out ~ so it was a very dramatic non-issue
A couple other updates: The dragon quilt top is completely finished! I'm waiting for a sunny day to get a good photo, but it will be soon, I promise! I showed it at the last PMQG meeting and it was warmly received and it made me feel pretty good ~ almost too good. Got so nervous in front of the group I completely forgot everything I wanted to say about it. Oh well... another time!
I also made a cute little reversible apron for the Michael Miller Stripe Challenge. It was really fun, bright fabric to work with:
Okay... I think that's about it for now. Thanks for joining me at this new site ~ I hope to regularly blog through the next year!
