An exciting email arrived on Monday--the e-newsletter from EQ started off with this! Yes, that's me!!

I also finished my McCall's Quilt Design Star FINAL round challenge. I can't post photos yet, but come back next Monday night and there should be something for you to vote on!

This is how much thread I had left on the spool both on my long-arm (left) and my domestic (right)! The Aurifil on the right is re-wound from the bobbin so that I could actually FINISH! YIKES!!!!!

I did post photos on Monday of my INMQ Challenge Entry which I couldn't post previously.

The MQX-West show is starting Wednesday evening in Portland, OR. I intend to be there with two of my own quilts and a customer quilt in the show. I also get to take a hands-on class from Linda Taylor.

So, I still have In Progress:  8 (starting to feel like I'm on the downside of the curve!)

  1. Congratulations on the publication, I really must familiarise myself with my EQ, I just seem to be so time poor!
