Life has definitely taken me to places I never thought I would go to....but nothing more exciting than where I am right now! Welcome to my world...

UFO 's and other things......





















Had to post my latest trial in longarming.I am showing it from the back, because the front was a rag basically, has rust spots left from old pins, and mildew where it sat exposed to the damp...for ... more years than I care to admit. I was trying out some free hand feathering...some small, some wonky ones. But lots of fun, and good practice. I will probably donate it to the Spca, or give it a tea staining.... and hang it on the porch! Then the crummy spots won't show. Hoping this will count as a UFO.... since it definitely wasn't finished. Will add some sort of binding...then it is done.!

Good practice for me though. Still waiting for some patterns to come to try pantos. Had to share more silly signage... recently went to Tennessee to see DD and the wee one, and of course passed many political signs. I don't know about you but who wouldn't vote for this guy..... don't know him...but he would win by default in my book. Who could vote agaist Roy Rogers? And whilst in Tennessee... had to drive by Austin Peay ( pronounced Pea) University...well they have outdone themselves.... in the strange sign department!!! And I won't tell you what the Frat boys came up with for a school slogan!!!! Will post the other two UFO's I am just about to finish up. Woo HOO! It feels so liberating to know that something is getting finished!!! Finally!!!! Need to sort through fabric. I can't beleive that I filled 4 plastic drawers... full of strips and bits. I really need to start something with them...but know I must keep up with Finn's blog. Need to organize to keep up with the new stuff that will be arriving ....holding thumbs...next week...from South Africa. I have been informed that they were going to schedule the truck for this week...but with the weather it was postponed. So maybe my SHIP really will be in next week. Then need to unpack that stuff...so need to get with it. And all I really want to do is sew at the moment! I have even put scrapbooking on back burner. LOTS of catching up to do there. Have a great couple of days. I am hoping to. Blessings to you all.

Well done with the practice piece...I have been toying with the idea of getting a longarm...but I can't afford it at this point.... Hope your ship comes in soon....it will be so much fun to go thru all your things...it will be like having new stuff (but with memories!).....

Wow - look at you go! I've got to get over my fear of feathers. I want to make them, but I just freeze up. You've inspired me to have another go at them *s*
Those signs are too funny!

thanks for your visit. This quilting is great (and the fronmt of the quilt looks lovely and less rag like than any quilt Ive made!)...maybe all i need is a longarm machine to solve all my problems....

If that's practice, well, I can't wait to see the perfected pieces. Beautiful! But, you must hear me laughing from here to there. The signs are great, especially those from Austin Peay. Gotta name, might as well go with it! Will you post what arrives from South Africa? I'd love to see, especially if it's fabric!
