It was a very good day.

How about you peoples? Did you have a good day? I had the most amazing sewing luck today. And believe me, at least half the time it is luck, and not skill. Machine quilting is really a challenge. I try to channel my inner Mrs. Schmenkman but its grids and cables for me. Have you seen her quilting? Well even her piecing and applique. Oh. My. Gosh.

I couldn't do it without this paper and I can't link to the site enough. I've gone through MILES of it. Anyway, it was wonderful, best machine quilting so far. I hope I'm just as lucky tomorrow.

Ok, off to bed. Got a read a little of my mystery then rest up the old eyeballs for an eye exam tomorrow. It couldn't come sooner, my glasses are seconds away from tape. I'll be lucky if they last till the new ones show up.

Hope tomorrow is a good one. My weather person was all jovial as he said it was heating up again. Jerk. Oops, I mean thanks for the warning.

I don't appreciate that kind of "good news" either. Relieved you're getting new glasses. Quilt Market and glasses don't seem to go well together.

At least one person at market will be able to see LOL! Good luck on your eye exam. At least you'll be inside out of this heat.

This new book I got by Mary Mashuta has some interesting ideas that do not involve dropping the feed dogs and free motion. Its kind of like that grid idea but making your own with freezer paper. I am going to try that out. (sometime)

You're so funny and soooooooooo sweet! And there I am over on my blog complaining about machine quilting this week. I second Nanette's mention of the new Mary Mashuta book on machine quilting! It's SUPER! And all of those eye candy quilts don't hurt either. I just got a reminder to schedule my eye exam. Funny, I still refer to these glasses as "new." Methinks this will be the year for bifocals. Or a little arm lengthening.

Can't wait to see the results! I also have Mary Mashuta's new book and being a long arm quilter, I found the book fabulous for all quilters!! Take a peek soon. I hope it cools off soon!

Yes, it was a beautiful day here in Michigan! And I finished a quilt that had been sitting here for a few years & it's also a Christmas present so it's kind of a 20-for-1, yea!
