I managed to get the runner sandwiched and started the free motion quilting. I'm anxious to try some of the new threads but I think this piece calls for simple quilting. I'd like to sit down to it now, but a friend just delivered a bucket of hand picked fiddle-heads. Since I'll be on the go most of this long weekend, I'd better get them blanched and frozen.
You might like to see some batiks I've been collecting for my next quilt that I'll be making for my sister in law. The colors match swatches from her curtains and bed spread, and while they're currently not my colors, I think they're very pretty in batik.
My daughter is currently in China, having flown there last night from Korea. She will be doing the Great Wall of China marathon. She sent us a page where we can put in her number and track her in the race. It starts at 8PM our time to-night. We won't see pictures until she gets back to Korea since they don't allow Facebook there. I think it's just amazing that we can track her progress from here.
Finally, to all the Canadian readers, have a great long weekend!
