Aw, screw it.

I’m calling to order my Prodigy tomorrow, God willing.

I’m still around.

Mostly. I hurt my wrist so I haven’t been as productive as I’d like, but I did block my quilt for MQX AGAIN. Don’t ask. Seriously. If it’s not flat after it dries I give up.

In addition to doing that I’ve started filming my class for MQresource.com. It’s really fun and I’m enjoying it, but it’s hell on my wrist. Also everytime I get into a groove my dog decides to either bark, drink water for 35 minutes straight, or knock around his food bowl. He’s the worst assistant ever, but he’s still a sweet weenie.

If you’re not a member of MQresource.com you should join because I have a fancy quilting video in the premier members section which is totally worth the minimal price. Also there are videos by Deb Levy who sort of looks like my mom. Very instructional and if you join now you can get a discount on my upcoming class.

Go join, tell Suzanne I sent you, she promised me cookies for every member that signs up, and if you sign up for my class you’ll be contributing to my quest to buy a new machine without selling my body (actually you’ll be contributing to my root canal fund first) What? You’re not going to sign up without knowing what my class is on? Oh ye of little faith, just know I’m teaching it so it’ll be fabulous. In fact you just might end up with a degree in fabulosity if ya’in’t careful. Slap ya mamma fabulous, that’s what it is. (end teaser)

And because I can’t post without including pictures here’s my march block for a tisket a tasket. It’s turned edge machine applique (no fusibles here!)

This block had already been washed so you can see how invisible the applique stitches become. I love my fabrics for this. I think it’s going to be a really fun quilt.

Seriously it is. I’m telling you I’ve almost told like eight people today that they’re full of BS.  I kid you not. One of these days you’re going to log into the forums and see that I’ve gone on a rampage and called people out on their BS. Then I’ll disappear and you’ll never hear from me again. I’ll only periodically reemerge to skulk through the catwalks with a cape hiding most of my face.

Needless to say my dark places are currently enraged, so let me clam myself by showing off my newest pet project.

Be sure to enlarge to see all my skipped stitched which had been captured on film until I used enough naughty words that even I couldn’t edit them out so they were deleted.*

*This is actually why I took note of the abundant BS. I’m sure it’s not BS at all, but I was in such a horrendous mood that I saw negativity in everything.

This is just a test.

If you want to watch my trying to figure out how to record quilting then this is the video for you.

If you disapprove of me calling someone a douche, a dumbass, or of me saying bullshit then this unfortunently is not the video for you. But you can mute it.

That would actually be .7 and .3mm not 7 and 3

Here’s a video on drawing feathers. I suggest you go to Vimeo to watch it as it’ll be in high def. You can also go full screen because it’s rather high quality and easier to watch when it’s bigger.

Someone kept asking me about feathers, so here are the very basics of how I do it. I had a longer video, but it was so big I couldn’t upload it anywhere. Enjoy!

And then come back here and tell me if you like this format of watching things being drawn. I think it worked really well with the camera overhea. I have some other ideas I want to do, but I’m not going to bother if everyone can’t see something being drawn and translate that to stitching
