Keeping Busy

While I'm waiting for us to collect enough money to get that work visa, I've decided to sew a bunch.....today I tried my hand at a quilt. It's tiny and it's not very warm, and it's not done yet (I don't have a walking foot, so I'm stitching in the ditch by hand) but it's kinda cute! (Aside from the mistake I made in putting the top panel on upside down and trying to correct the mistake by putting the bottom panel upside down....you can only notice though by looking at the pirates that are....uhh, upside down).

I have to say, that red plush wasn't fun to sew with....especially without pins.

Also....It hailed again today, thanks to the hurricanes surrounding us!!!

They say the quilting bug usually skips a generation. Now I believe it. If you'd like, Ashley, I'll send you fabric and pins.

I think it's uber cool that you sew and quilt. I wish I had interesting hobbbies...
