Back up the train, and I'll tell you what I have been up to while not posting like I should. First, I have the big tee shirt quilt done except to sew on the binding. The back was quite challenge in that I had to take it all apart and reassemble it because it was so wonky. The number strips caused it to have a pronounced sag in the middle, causing the quilting to have tucks in it. I removed the two rows of quilting, re-made the back and added fabric strips to the sides of the numbers for stability, and had Mr Wazoo do the quilting. Good move on my part. His quilting was perfect.

In the afternoon, my friend Vince came over to the studio to learn a bit more about longarming. He bought an APQS, too, and we went over some of the basics of operation and supplies. When I got home from the middle school, I quickly made a little quilt to practice on. I keep a box of leftover 6 inch squares, so it was easy sewing.

|All the squares have different patterns.|
In the miscellaneous category, my daughter in law sent a picture that my 2 year old grandson made. Mr Wazoo framed it and hung it over the desk in the studio! Aww...that's so sweet.
I also got my birthday present to myself. I ordered some new socks, and they are all colorful and quite comfy.
