The Church quilt is finished and Glenda is binding it! Yeah! I think it turned out ok. I'll add pics when it is finished! The "costume" is also finished - it was a satin "poodle type skirt" without the poodle. Instead it had a bright orange guitar on it with musical notes made of fabric with lots of glitter. I also made a vest using the same fabric, with a sparkly organza overlay. Both of these garments had black fringe, and sequins. After breaking 5 -( yes, 5) sewing machine needles trying to sew on the sequins, I hand sewed the rest. Did I mention that both garments were black. My eyes really need a break. And my studio has lots of sequins and glitter on the floor. I need to clean the ironing board, too - there's glitter there!
I was up at 5AM this morning to finish the costume. When I finished, it was not quite 7AM, so I put a quilt on the Gammill - I'll take a pic tonight - it is a John Deere quilt that I'm quilting for my friend, Sonya. It is really cute - Sonya said she is a new quilter, but she does nice work for a beginner! I also went home for lunch today, and spent about thirty minutes in the studio winding bobbins and organizing stuff so I can quilt tonight. Our family summer party is this Saturday, so I should be making brownies and cookies, but I think I can squeeze in an hour for quilting.
Father's Day was great - we had all the kids over (except for the Seattle contingent) and had a great time. We grilled burgers, planned a little for the party, and played games. I had gone to Hamm's Orchard this past week, so we had fresh peach cobbler and blackberries with ice cream. Yum. (Note to self - resume diet!)
Forgot to mention that my sister and her husband were here for a couple of days last week. It is always good to see them. We went shopping one day, and had a wonderful time visiting. I don't get to see her often enough.
