Been really busy here with unpacking and getting settled in, and working on finding all my stuff so I can finish up my class samples for MQX. I've posted some pics here of the samples I worked on today. This is for a class called Not Gonna Take It Lying Down and it's all about things we can "make" on the longarm machine, but not actual quilts.
These are thread appliques ~ made totally out of thread. You see them here on water-soluble stabilizer, but when the stabilizer is washed away you're left with only thread. These are SO much fun to play with!!

My, how time flies! After some harrassment from well-meaning readers of my blog, I have discovered that I have not posted anything new in over 3 months!
Well, obviously, I've been busy. For those of you keeping up with me thru other means (because you're obviously not going to find out much here!), you know that I'm in the middle of moving. So, now the BIG MOVE has occurred and I am drowning in a sea of boxes. They are everywhere ~ all over the place! Big boxes, small boxes, short boxes, tall boxes! And I have no idea how I'm ever going to get thru them all!
And, in the middle of all this, we're renovating the room downstairs that is my studio. It was the basement ~ block walls, concrete floor. We've now framed it, insulated it and drywalled most of the room. We've done enough that I can move in and set up shop again.
Well, that's all today. I've got to get back to the boxes. I'll try to not go long in between posts next time, and I'll also try to get some pictures of my new studio up soon!
