Who'd a thunk it?

I haven't blogged for a few days here and I haver had people wanting to know if I'm okay!! I'm almost fine...bad chest cold, but who doesn't have one this time of year? After the show in Florida, I knew it was just an incubation period away before I came down with something, since I was in close proximity with thousands of quilters at the show (thanks, Donna). I'm sure this will pass quickly.

On the better side, Mr Wazoo is Employee of the Month again after helping me with a giant pick-out job I am currently engaged in. Don't faint, Sally, it is your quilt. I used black thread in the bobbin when quilting the black border on a quilt and I was not happy with the result; but only on the back! The front looked really nice, but it is a show quilt, so after taking it off the machine and even after trimming, I decided it had to come out and be re-done. Rats! I have been picking for the last three days and evenings and have one side to go. The plan is to use the beige bobbin thread and black top thread, balancing the tension so that there aren't pokies of beige on the front. But that is later.

Finished!   or not...

From the front, wonderful

The back had a real problem. I finally decided to take the black quilting out. 

Meanwhile, Mr Wazoo has forged ahead with his quilting and has had a profitable few days while I sat picking.

I think it is easy to see why I will reward Mr Wazoo for his dedication to the business and for his determination to get'r done!
Meanwhile, two antique lone star quilt centers came in for me to finish. I just had to stop picking for a few minutes to admire the handwork and locate the patches to be replaced. Gotta hurry and get the show moving so I can work on these! Did I say, "I love my job" lately?!

Don't you love the two bright red diamonds? What was she thinking? I would love to know.

Burn holes? Don't know, but I already found the perfect fabric to fix them!
