My little holiday in quilting land saw me back at GJ's yesterday, investing in some batting, thread, extra fabric and EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE (again). I think I've learned as much about quilting from the help the GJ's staff have given me as from any other source.
And today, I fell in love with my machine and my studio space all over again, as I free-motion quilted the scrappy quilt. Binding is tomorrow's task.
In other news, the wee girl decided that she must cut her hair.
But was only willing to let go of the length below the elbows. And she wanted a fringe. She looked a bit like this (and I didn't like it).
Here she is, sewing up bags (of her own design, with no help from her mother welcome or tolerated), confidently threading the machine,changing stitches and ....ahem...wearing the wrist band from the swimming pool yesterday. Doing her own thing.
She asked, "Can I go to Sewjourn?"
