I've been working

I have been working ALOT on using things. We all own so many patterns and have so many ideas. We have magazines and books. In my case I own three of these panels. I bought them the first time I went to Houston Quilt Festival...uhm....at least 5 years ago. I began to hand quilt one of them...my one and only attempt at hand quilting. That's been sitting half done for the past 3 years. Well, I finally got off my duff and finished this one on my home sewing machine. THe full shot was very blurry so I'll have to retake it. In the meantime, you can check out the quilting. I've also finished the hand quilted one....on the machine. I agonizzed over whether or not to do hand and machine quilting together and decided that done is done and perfect is not part of my name.

Speaking of Houston.....anyone going??????????? They may be recovering but the show is still on.
