I just got done reading all the comments! Oh you guys! I didn't make my post below in a "woe is me" kind of way. I'm happy with the quilting I do. Honest I am!
It was just weird thoughts I'd had since Saturday...where there I was hand quilting on my scrappy scrappy Charlotte's Baskets quilt, with a gammill with a statler stitching its self into a frenzy to the right of me, gorgeous glorious machine quilting to the left of me...and hardly ANYTHING in the hand quilting category, I know that is dwindling, and that is the one thing that makes me so sad.
It was just observations, no conclusions drawn, no "oh please say nice things about my quilting and make me feel better" kind of post. I love what I do and I'll keep on doing it. I appreciate your thoughts and your listening.
As to what I'm doing up at 3:30am?? Heck if I know! Hot flashes maybe? (oh joy, isn't THIS fun?!) I think Chloe commiserates on the hotflashes too...just look at all this fur!(I love her pink belly...so soft!) Actually, she is doing well, she and Oscar are playing a bit and she often flops over like this for me to give her belly tickles. Good swiffer girl!
I'm dreaming of doing a strippy crazy amishy type thing with lots of solids in all colors with hand quilting all in black thread.....maybe now is when I get started!
