Vacation…no machine…how to cope.

Vacation…no machine…how to cope....

I’ve spent the past week away from home, away from my machine.  It seemed like a nice break at the time.  But I’m over that and anxious to get home and start in on finishing all my projects.  The worst part was that even though I live in N. Texas, I was not able to attend the Houston Quilt Fest.  A travesty…. I have two Marcelle Medallions in the unfinished pile.   During the week, I did force myself to sit down and figure out exactly HOW I am ever going to quilt that BAQ (I don’t want to use harsh language, so I’ll let you try to figure out the acronym.  Here’s a hint: it’s 98×98).  It will be interesting to see how much the finished project looks like the plan on paper!                                                                           The other Marcelle has been with me all week…handquilting…forever…There is definite progress though.  I only have 3 borders left.  Of course, each border is longer than the last and consumes more and more time.                                   That pesky whale is such a ham!  He manages to sneek into every photo-op....
