I did some quilting!! yay
this was a customer's quilt, who "really" wanted it by september 1st, and I "really" wanted her to have it by then, so I worked on it in stages monday and tuesday- Yes, with Sonja strapped to me or in a sleeper (see below)
this quilt is a fund raiser - now I can't remember for what- so I'm also donating %25 of the quilting fee to the cause :-)
I quilted a basic meandering and then added the occasional dragonfly,
see WHO's in the middle of my table?? at some point I was cutting fabric and everytime I sliced the fabric it would startle her- poor thing- she didn't cry though.
I did work on two blocks for swaps- I MIGHT have another block, I have to look, otherwise I'm all caught up.
Now I wanted to show you this!
I'm not the only creative one in this family! my husband made these speakers.
He's made lots of pairs over the years we've been together, but then he either didn't LOVE them or didn't finish then 100% or used them for a while personally and then after a while didn't like them, so he'd destroy them- always sad when he did. We do still have several pairs around the house- all different. And I'm so happy he's actually trying to get some views on this maybe one day a pair will sell, we'll see :-)
