FIRSTLY - A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.
My first post for the New Year is my sample of the new Free Motion Quilt Challenge 2012
Our First Month's challenge is from Frances Moore
I have used a Silk YLI thread in the top and a varigatedAurifil 50 in the bobbin.
The needle is a gold Schmetz Stick Nadel
Embroidery neede 75/11
I had no trouble with the thread,
This is the reverse side - and I di however have an incorrect tension - which I should have tried out more than I did
I am using my Nessie - a Bernina 820 DSM
This is some drawings I did of the design in my sketch book I keep all my designs in.
The top desings here was some practise I was doing for my last quilt - the Labyrinth quilt.
Below is a photos of our family Christmas Dinner , which was held at my Younger DD house on the 25th. It was really wonderful to haveus all together :)
I think there were 19 of us. The only ones missing were our eldest Grandson and his partner.
It was a very happy time for us all.
Then we went back to our eldest sons house and had another lovely meal.
A great Christmas all round!
