It’s that time again. I’m keeping most of this quilt to myself (which is impossible because it’s seriously awesome) My mom (my ironer) even likes it and she’s usually not into my quilts.

Oh? See my fancy toile ironing surface? Yeah, it got a workout today…and it’s clean!

Things needed to make a quilt

1. Mom

2. Freezer paper

3. Elmer’s Glue

4. Diet Coke.

And in the background you can just barely see the beginnings of the new kid. He’s a boy, obviously because thems what boys make. He’s dark, moody, and a total loner. He also has 5,000 yards of gold silk thread waiting in a box for him.

Mmm. Earthy.

And done.

I had a lot of fun with this. No marking at all, which was just…oh, it was heavenly.

What I’ve been up to.

Besides still waiting for my machine? Yeah, that’s right, I’m still waiting.  They were supposed to call a week ago and didn’t, so I’m calling them on Monday morning. I’ve made three payments already. It’s a good thing I want this machine so much because if I didn’t I might be less patient…

Anyway, when my new machine does get here I’ll be filming a DVD. You read that right, a DVD. I was approached to film one a few months ago and I’ve been sort of kicking it around for a while and wondering if it was something I wanted to do. Turns out I wasn’t that interested in it, but then a few days ago, I decided to just go for it.

I’m not going to talk about it a lot because I’m still fine tuning what it’ll include, but it’s going to have a LOT on it and just to whet your appetite a little here are some pics
