One of the last things I finished on my old machine before setting it aside (for Bloomer? Or for when I need to travel to a class, more likely) was this mini-quilt for the Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild:
It’s 24″ by 16″ or so, and apparently I impressed everyone with my mad free motion quilting skillz. To which I said, please don’t look at the back which is JACKED UP with crazy tension loops. However, the awesomeness of monkeys make up for it.
One of the other projects I’m working on is a quilt for the Good Mews Animal Foundation auction this year. Zapper is trying to help, but…
She’s a might bigger than the 4 1/2″ square she’s trying to fit into. Her head’s about the right size, though.
The kids are doing… whatever it is they do. Bloomer had a great first month of Pre-K, but things have quickly descended into madness again. I don’t think her teacher believed me when I told her that August appeared to be the calm before the storm. Nothing like being proven right, but as I said below, “Even monkeys learn”. She’ll figure it out.
