My new machine

No, it is not a sewing machine. In fact, it is kind of an ANTI-sewing machine.
You see, it keeps my hands kinda busy....... ;) It has kind of become a nightly ritual at our house, put the kids to bed and then the hubs starts blending! Ah, summer!

BUT... I have managed to almost finish my Little Folks quilt. Here is a little sneak peek. I am doing it a bit backwards as I have already done the machine quilting and put on the binding and am now adding some hand quilting after the fact. It is fun as I can use the quilt and enjoy it as is, and will just pick it up here and there and add stitches until I feel it is done. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed the process of making this quilt! Zero stress, 100% fun. Mojo definitely restored, can't wait to start on another!

Cheers, friends!

I love that you're wrapped in a quilt and drinking a frozen concoction. Awesome.

Belinda said...

That's exactly the order in which I do quilts - machine quilt, bind, then add some hand quilting.
Works for me :)

Ok I hate you. I love margaritas and here you are flaunting them right in my face along with your sun. So not nice.

Love the Little Folks Quilt. Where do you get your labels?

If I was drinking margueritas and hand quilting I don't think my stitches would look very good. Then again, I probably wouldn't care!LOL! Can't wait to see the quilt. Love your OCD label. Where do you get them done?
