Here it is the middle of June and I've been neglecting my blog and never seem to have time to catch up on what everyone else in blogger land is doing. I need a whole day to sit here in front of the computer for a visit with y'all. See what you've been up to and where you've been. It's been a busy time again. Weather has turned nice with so much to do outside, there's never enough time to get into the sewing room to sit down and actually sew. I've cleaned in there. It looks so nice and ready to spend the day with fabric and do nothing but sew.


I've finally finished the handquilting on that raffle quilt that has caused so much trouble. Last night we three sisters got together so our excellent seamstress could do the finishing touches on the windmill via machine. It's turned out well, much better than I expected. Using the variagated black (storm clouds) thread did the trick, giving dimension where needed. The windmill finally looks like what it's supposed to be rather than a space capsule. vbg

Yes, it HAS turned out well. The quilting has made the quilt. The applique border really gives it a Dutch feel. Well done!

The windmill looks wonderful, not a bit like a space capsule. That's a tricky motif to turn out properly and you have really done it, it's beautiful.

I am so glad to see you rescued this quilt--I remember your angst when you were trying to deal with it earlier. Its time left alone brought inspiration to you!
