finishing cosmos 2, don't forget the giveaway from Feb 14th

I had a doctor's appointment this morning and afterwords stopped for a few groceries. Once they were looked after, I went to my studio to do some more on the second cosmos piece. I finished up the bobbin work on the three little purple flowers, and once I got going with the free motion to fill in the rest, I couldn't stop until it was done. This is going to be on the front of a sewing machine cover.

It's a little more heavily quilted than I usually would, but I find I quite like it and will likely do more in the same vein.
 I did little free motion flowers.
And vines with leaves.
I love the texture in the gridded area too.

To-night I plan to relax, since, this morning, I got my 20 minute walk in, as well as some yoga. If I feel like sitting at my computer to look through some of my photos, I may do some sketches for my next project. That is one of the reasons I'd like a tablet, so that I could sit with it on my lap and read blogs, surf the net, or even look at my photos to draw. I'm just going to wait until I can afford the one I want. I'm thinking about the Samsung Galaxy.

Holly, this is very good. Glad you are having a good day.

Not so good are these darn new verification words. I find them hard to read.

This is gorgeous, Holly. I am in awe of your stitching; I am such a bad free motion stitcher that I finally decided my work is not about the stitch and stopped worrying about it.

This is gorgeous!
I too am struggling with these new verification words! I rarely get them right first time!
