Back Behind the Sewing Machine

I had SDA work to do on Constant Contact this morning, but got down to the studio this afternoon and spent some time doing the free motion quilting on the pipes in the organ piece. I try to make work that does not require much FMQ. I think I am too impatient to do a very good job. I did some quilting on the pipes to reference their roundness. I hope it is working.

It is nice to have my sewing machine working properly. At least that part is working!!

I have a busy week-end — may or may not check in. We have Trinity Artisan Fair this week-end. I need to check in there. The family is coming for dinner tomorrow night. Sunday, I am going over to Tillamook to attend the reception for our Rhythm and Hues exhibit at the Latimer Quilt and Textile Museum. I should be able to get some good photos there.

    oh, and as far as fmq goes…it is in and of itself a major production/performance. i have to meditate, drink a beer, pray, drink another beer, turn up the relaxing music, stretch, have another beer on hand in case of emergency…

    In the midst of being busy don’t forget to have a really great time and laugh as much as possible 🙂

    I can see the curve of the pipes on the computer screen, so I bet it looks fabulous in person. Have fun in Tillamook!
