This is Gibby snoozing under the computer desk while I am typing this post.He is a faithful companion to me while I stitch or surf the Internet. Obviously, nothing much of note is happening here and Gibby's demeanor attests to that. It's not a very flattering photo of him. He is actually quite handsome. One of my chores this weekend is to take some pictures of him. HomeFurEver is having a fundraiser and they want pictures of all their past and present adoptions. Since the fundraiser - "Woofstock"- is a battle of the bands at a local night club - we won't be making an appearance. The cause is a worthy one, but our night club days are in the past.
Thanks for all the responses regarding the hand quilting hints. I really must see if the local long arm quilters will do some basting for me. I know when long arms were first on the scene I did inquire and no one was very interested. That was a while ago though. I keep forgetting that option.
As for my hand quilting..... I am getting farther along that I anticipated. Yeah! Dare I say, I might even be done with this quilt soon and on to preparations for Quilt Market in Houston. There are vague rumors of fabric being delivered here around Labor Day. I'm sure "Labor Day" will be a very appropriate named holiday as we will have 4 quilts to make from that delivery.
I know this is about the most boring post ever. So boring, that I have tried to put it off for days. I got nothing. I have been reading other quilting blogs and there is much more exciting stuff going on. Liesl had an adventure in Vermont. Sandy is reminiscing in Iowa. Camille is just fabulous in Nevada, and Lissa is a supermodel in Texas. Yes, much more interesting stuff than what is going on here.
