and not a minute to waste! this is the first UFO that will be tackled, starting today. it'll be free form quilted, a la joe cunningham. it'll give it that antique look. and, alas, i found 2 more UFOs, both little quilts, but more nonetheless. **** thanks to diet pepsi, i was able to see the new year in quite easily, though just barely. also got some sewing done, which is a fine way to spend any day or night. and are you interested in some snow and very cold air? would be glad to send it all your way if i could...the cold is tolerable, but hate the snow piles everywhere. no melting this week, either. good thing we are on the upside of daylight hours. now off to start quilting! enjoy the year, everyone, or at least as much as possible.
