I have had a bust few weeks here lately so I don't have much quilting related stuff to show so I'm giving you a glimpse of my cubbie at work.
Here is my desk, complete with pink pen (all the editors have a different color and mine is pink), sewing thread, and Star Trek Pez dispensers. I think everyone needs Star Trek Pez dispensers on their desk don't you?
And here I am wearing more make-up than normal (normal being none) because I have a video shoot today...notice how I even have an iron in my office...sweet.
None of this is even remotely like any of my engineering/scientist job desks...well, exept maybe the Star Trek Pez dispensers.
Blog reader Chritine Goedhuis sent me this absolutely amazing pictures last week. She made My Tweets, embellished it with hand embroidery, and hand quilted it. It's so lovely and pretty much speaks for itself so enjoy...
Oh and she also won a Best in Show and Best Large Quilt ribbon with this quilt. I hope she enters it in more show!!!!
So, Tracee, as in 36 Quilts Tracee, my co-worker has been using the Handiquilter we have on site to quilt many of her quilts for her 36 Quilts project. Last week she "invited" us to have a go on her quilt Oceans 22. Here is Sherri doing her little bit.
I don't have a picture of me doing mine, but here is a picture of my quilting...I kinda "burped" (in the quilting sense of the word) as I was passing along...but Tracee didn't mind. It was really really fun. I could definitely see myself learning to use the Handiquilter Avante...but my first project is going to be learning the Handiquilter Sweet Sixteen...pictures to come!
