|Under my favourite kind of tree!|
|Texture - mmmm|
|Another shot of the thread and the loose, flowing leafy designs I quilted|
|I showed these in the previous post, pre-washed stage but worth a second look now the quilt is washed|
|The back. FMQ feathers in the border|
|I'm getting better at turning corners!|
|A shot of the back where I pieced in a strip because I was short on the backing fabric, and this way I could once again piece the label in as an integral part of the backing!|
|Texture, and green grass!!|
|Folded up -- love the poinsettias that are outside everywhere!|
Bella is settling in nicely to our very own sewing room. She was visibly happy the other day when I was organizing some of the projects I have brought down with me to sew, sniffing and then rolling on them as if to say, "My stuff! My smells! I'm okay now!" She misses our basement sewing area, I'm sure, but she's fast adapting to this new space with familiar items from Kingsville as well as from the condo in Bradenton.
That's a subject for another post. Lara of Buzzin' Bumble (you need to check out her Spoonflower fabric, a piece of which I won last week! Woot! Woot!) asked me today how I manage my sewing "world" between two homes.
