My father is home from the hospital and his prognosis looks good. Extracting that much information out of him was difficult, and perhaps he’s not really saying what’s what. There’s not really a choice if he doesn’t want to talk about it, so I’ll have to accept what he says. Oh well. He will probably be here later this month, or sometime in August.
The past few weeks have been busy. Butterfly’s stitching in the ditch is finished, and a lot of time was spent unsuccessfully trying to quilt it. To say there were bobbin tension issues is an understatement. After too much time spent messing around, it has been set aside to quilt the Fancy Fox top. Although I think the problem has been resolved, Butterfly and I are currently licking our wounds and need some time apart.
As for Fancy Fox and me, well,we’re getting along very well. While there are plenty of slips in the stitching, this is the best free motion quilting effort yet. Stitches are becoming more even with each session at the machine, and the quilting more fluid with fewer blunders. Most of the background has been quilted, but the background thread ran out last night. Some more should be in hand soon. Now, what to quilt in those faces?
Oh look. Some picking out to do.
