It’s been a long time since I did a daily blog. Other than complaining about my hip hurting (yes, I’ve managed to develop arthritis there, too!), is there really enough to talk about? Hmm, let’s see . . .
For my anniversary present to Brian, I gave him this quilt . . .
Brian gave me . . . the Fusion 24 from HandiQuilter . . .
The ProStitcher part is the bit that’s going to help me make more beautiful quilts. Drawing flowers has never been a strong point for me so this will help — A LOT!!
Since our anniversary on May 30, I’ve been sewing for my student who is 8-1/2 months pregnant and learning my machine. Well, after it was installed on the 16th of June, I began learning my machine. I’m doing pretty well considering I’ve not had any formal training but I’m not going to declare myself a “professional quilter” until I at least work on my own quilt tops (yeah, that stack I have in the closet!).
It’ll come with time and I have to be patient.
And NO, I won’t be retiring any time soon– I still have to HELP pay for the Fusion!! He wouldn’t really GIVE me a gift that expensive!! (Or would he and I just figured I had to help with it?)
Hey, Brian . . . Honey?
