I was finally able to string enough days together to put October Magic on the machine and start quilting.
I love the little spider with the growing web. I wasn't quite sure how far I was going to let the spider spin. This seems just about as far as this spider is going to travel.
I wanted the little blocks to look like hex signs on a barn. Not sure that I pulled that one off, but that was the intention.
I wanted the ghost to look like it was swaying in the breeze. But, it looks like he's doing the backstroke in a pond.....and it is going to stay that way!
All quilting stopped when our youngest son and his family showed up for dip in the pool, which transitioned into a barbecue, and spur of the moment run to the store for a birthday cake and ice cream to celebrate his 36th birthday which is later on this week. He celebrates the whole month of July. I don't know how that got started, but on July 1st, the celebration begins. Our daughter's birthday is also in July, so now the two party animals celebrate the whole month together. Last weekend, all three of the kids and their families went camping together to celebrate the July birthdays.
I'm off to the shop today to see what new quilting goodies arrived since I was there last week. The fabric just keeps getting prettier and prettier.
