Multi-Talented

I can talk and sew at the same time. If that isn't talent, then what is? I have finished hand quilting my cushion top for FTLOS swap while talking non-stop to my friend. I am rather pleased with how it is looking. I originally planned on doing concentric circles with the various coloured threads to match the bright colours used in the pattern. I started. Then I changed my mind - as a girl can do!







I thought that the coloured threads were detracting from the pattern, from the neutrals standing out. So I ripped out those stitches. And started again.



I think that two neutral coloured threads on the neutral areas and then the bright colours on the bright enhances the design and this makes me much happier. Happy is good.





I would write more today but I am frustrated - with Blogger. Mine isn't working. I have had to switch back to the old editor to even manage a post. And most of the buttons don't work on it, nor psell check (so forgive me), or just about anything else. Just another day where Blogger does something that makes things that worked perfectly yesterday not work today. I know it isn't just me. I have found other people posting on the Blogger forum about it. Has anything happened to your ability to post or edit on your blog?

  1. Your quilting is stunning.
    When making comments Blogger freezes and I have to go to preview then edit to continue. Sometimes it is too much bother and I quit trying to comment! Phew got that off my chest!!! Di xo
