Today I spent the day sewing and I finished piecing Check out the Stars.
I am looking forward to this month as I take December off and do not take on any quilting jobs. I get my longarm all to myself :) I now have 3 of my own quilt tops that need quilting and I'm also looking forward to snow dyeing again.
Speaking of snow dyeing the latest issue of Quilter's Connection will be out soon and Lori's and my article will be in it! Our article was mentioned on the cover. A listing of where you can buy this magazine can be found here.
I also got a surprise in the mail yesterday, another package from my longarm buddy Desley in Australia. I think she is trying to fatten me up and she is doing a good job!! If you look closely you see a jar of Vegemite, I have never tried it and was told was an acquired taste. So I gave it a go and spread some on a cracker. The smell was off putting at first but the taste wasn't offensive. Then I gave some to my husband....his expression was priceless and I have never seen him run to the garbage can so fast to spit out food!
She also sent a quilting pattern called Giant Dahlia by Michelle Yeo, it comes with acrylic templates for cutting. Love using these templates! It has curved piecing and the pattern looks quite complicated but I'm up for the challenge. Thanks Desley....look for a package coming your way soon! :)
