Ok, so time has flown by so fast this year. Between my schooling, work, and just life, almost a month has gone by since my last blog entry. We have 3 graduations coming up, my 2 oldest sons are graduating from college and high school in May, and then I finish school and get my certificate in July. Yay! I will hopefully gain employment in the medical field as a medical assistant. I am very much enjoying learning, and I will be continuing in the fall again, and go for my AA, and decide from there what I want to do. But, I have been quilting and sewing, because it is an obsession for me after all J.
So, without further ado: I give you Orca Bay Mystery quilt on the frame. It’s about half quilted, and I can’t wait for it to be done, so I can use it on my bed. Although, my son’s girlfriend has been eyeing it. I think I may have to hide it for fear it will disappear one day (LOL). J.
Here is a close-up of the quilting I am doing in the blocks:
It came out kind of blurry, I don’t really know why.
And here is my home made template:
Isn’t it lovely? I used a cereal box, I love to recycle things. Less in the landfill!
So, that’s what I have been up to lately. When I get a bit more caught up on things, I am thinking about putting some videos up on some of the issues one has using a 9” machine. I had so many problems when I started out, I would like to share some of the tips and techniques I have learned along the way.
