I also spent 45 minutes hand quilting, an hour and a half hand appliqueing, and about an hour and a half playing on the longarm. I'm trying to learn some all over designs to do from the front of the machine that don't have to be marked. I'm doing pretty good on leaves, and curly tendrils and ribbons, but I'm have a heck of a time trying to do holly leaves in all directions -- I can do them from the top down towards myself -- but can't seem to make my hands work correctly from the bottom up or horizontally. It'll take more practice, obviously. Also working on a teardrop echo type shape, which also needs work because I confuse myself trying to do all directions! And I need a lot of practice filling the area evenly -- not too heavy in one spot and not too thin in the next. I'm having a good time practicing, though.
The bathroom in the basement.
No humidity and temps in the 70's.
Making lists....things to do, things to buy...I live and die by lists!
