Anywayssssss. once the machine was set up to use just the right zig-zag stitch, I spent 7 - count 'em - 7 hours sewing around all the little stones with invisible thread. Luckily, I had a good book to listen too. Still by 10 at night , the piece was ready to layer up with batting - no back - and to start putting in the extensive thread work I have planned. This will be the first time I free motion with my horizon so I'm sure there will be a learning curve too!
Artist's Reception at Campbell's Pottery where my piece, Lilies, is being shown this month. Very fun! Not only was the food good (grin) but also its fun to meet all the other artists. I love meeting people who have never had work shown before - they're so excited - they're just beaming!
I promise to do a review blog about the show later this week. We leave this week for my annual trip to Quilting by the Lake - so I have some blogs that are scheduled to post while I'm gone!
