This beautiful bouquet arrived at my office on Friday. It was HUGE, beautiful and very fragrant. Dual purpose flowers. :-)


Hubs came and asked me Monday night if I had an extra baby quilt for a guy that he works with. He then proceeded to ask if I had anything jungle themed because that's what the new parents were going with. Much to his surprise, this is what I pulled out of the TO BE QUILTED closet. It's done, washed and ready to be handed off as a gift.

Jungle Quilt

I'm finally discovering all the cool videos that are out on Youtube. I found this one today. I'm going to have to try it.

I did some practice quilting this weekend.  I purchased micro-drive handles for my fun quilter but never got them out of the bags.  I finally liberated them and had some fun playing.  The front of the machine scares me for some reason.  I'm truly a pantograph quilter.  With the micro drive handles I felt more in control being closer to the fabric.  It made standing on the front of the frame a little less scary.

Have a great week.

That is so awesome that you just had the top in your to do list. I love it when things work out that way. Love the quilt and flowers.
