After my going to the quilter’s class I was so excited. It all looked pretty good on my samples. I got home and thought, YES!! I can do this!!!
Well, last week I started quilting the Mystery Quilt from last January. I must be very out of practice, because I went all over the place with my “in the ditch” stitching, which last year I thought I had mastered. And as for freestyle quilting… well, I have found that there is a huge difference between playing on a small sampler, and attempting the same on a real quilt. Even my wonderful Nina is not magically doing it for me…. sigh….. but, I shall keep going.. I have no choice.. I want to finish some quilts this year 🙂
Today I ignored Nina and the quilt. Instead I worked on our free block of the month and the website where we are going to host it. You can have a sneak peak at our website…. and tomorrow I will get the block up 🙂
Our website is called JJ’s Gifts and Crafts… and it has a history.. but more of that another day. For now, go check it out – there isn’t much there yet, so it won’t take you long 🙂
