I got up yesterday and went to the gym. Fat reward for that was that I had gained another pound! Six pounds since the end of November! UGH. I guess I will be back at the hard work beginning this week. Then to the Sally Ann for some thrifting. I got a purple silk dress, and some more wool for cheap! Then I went home. I did laundry, and some other stuff while DH was out at Office Max. I needed a new graph notebook. I have actually filled up my last one and this will be book number 3!!
When DH got home we packed it all up to go to LTW's so I could quilt my redwork quilt. I belong to a quilt group that had a challenge. You had to make a basket quilt and do the entire thing yourself. So I went to LTW's to use her Statler to quilt it. Oh YEAH!! Here is the photo tour.
I quilted a design into each of the individual geese. Actually the Statler did it, I just programed it and outlined it and let it work it's magic.
LTW actually got a few pics of me working.
It took me about 3 hours to do even with LTW showing me what I needed to do. I outlined the baskets and put flowers in them too. You can kind of see them here.
I did a crosshatch in the center and I love how it came out.
After I finished, I got to go out to the barn and say hi to the peacocks, Blue and Osirus. I didn't take any pictures as it was freezing but they are getting so BIG! After we left we decided to go out for dinner. We went to a little place called the Bayou Grille in Belleville. I had the ribs, don't they look yummy?
Dinner was good and the company was awesome.
Now I have to get to work on a few things so I have something to show you all tomorrow!
