machine quilting finish

Just look at the huge dressing that they put on my finger! I'm anxious to take it off but when I thought about it, I realized that the stitches are on top of the joint, so it's being protected with the dressing. I can sew, though I've been being lazy since I'm on antibiotics for the sinus. It's tricky to type. And boy my hand looks old!

I was anxious to sew today though. I finished up the machine quilting around the houses and started the quilting in the border.
I looked through some designs first, tried some samples, then started the machine quilting. Then I didn't like it and ripped it out. I tried some more designs on scraps and went back to the borders. I'm semi OK with it but not really happy so I stopped. It doesn't show very well that I'm doing starfish with meandering in between.
 I am still cleaning out magazines. I have 4 Quilting Arts, issues 17,18, 19, and 20, and 3 Cloth Paper Scissors, issues 2, 3, and 4 that I'm willing to part with. If you want one, leave me a comment and after a week or so I'll send some out. I might like to put 2 in a pack and if more than one person wants then, I'll draw names.

Owee!! Hope you feel better.
I finally added your blog to my list. I kept searching for the wrong words! I got it now. ; ) I do have those issues that are shown for QA. I own no CPS though, so if you see one you think I might like, let me know. I would love some! ; )
