Don't forget to enter my last Blogiversary giveaway here. Ends Thursday at midnight Central time!
I just wanted to do a brief post and let everyone know that I have not fallen off the planet. Monday night was quilt guild and we had a jumble sale. I took a few items that I had been given and decided I wouldn't ever use. I didn't sell many, but made a donation of them to the grab bags for the 2012 quilt show. Maybe someone else can use them Unfortunately the air conditioning wasn't working and by the time I got home, I was too ill to do anything productive.
But I did get the MIAGIA quilts sandwiched. They say these charity quilts are a good way to practice techniques, so I plan to practice my FMQ on them. I am still struggling with FMQ techniques, although my machine and I seem to have reached an accommodation - at least most of the time. I've decided the machine has a faulty design: the darning foot is not screwed on and comes off the presser foot at the durndest times. But, I think I am getting better. This should give me a chance to try a couple of new things.
I'll let you know how it goes!
