I AM THRILLED

Who would have thought? I have comments!! Hurray!! I joined two Quilting Rings..and all in one day I might add.

I have been lurking around this quilters website http://cre8tivequilter.blogspot.com/for quite a while and absolutely love her "A Bit Askew" quilt that she made for her aunt. Go and check it out.

I have been stalking http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/ for a long long time and am still wondering how she gets her quilts done so quick and hosts quilt alongs also...Amazing I say. My BFF that is moving to another Province at the end of the month did the first quilt along..Wonder if she finished it??

Today was 2nd physio appointment. Yesterday I was in more pain then I was when I went in there and not a happy camper at all. So I called and complained - well not really - I only voiced my opinion in an agitated tone - one that one would expect one to have when they are in agony...however..these girls don't scare easily as they convinced me to go back today. Hmmm..well I can walk straight, but can't sit much..so I am on my knees at this time typing away here. I haven't tried quilting on my knees yet....But I am sure I will be able to kneel at my desk tommorrow at work. My boss will make sure of that no doubt.

So enough of all that whining.....let me show you a table runner I have made. It is from the Spring 07 issue of America Loves Scrap Quilts by Jo Beth Simons. I did not make it exactly like the pattern as I had these scraps I wanted to use and they were only 2.0". Being the novice quilter I am I thought I would find it easier to lay it out on quilter grid and sew on the lines..NOT!! I do not like that stuff. But it's done and it was a bit more experience so it's all good in the end. The applique is raw edge and sewed with a satin stitch. I think you can double click to make it larger if you wish.
Thanks for stopping by.
