FMQ, Home

Well its been an interesting start to the week.
I have managed to get a very small bit of quilting done.  I was trying some trapunto...second piece I have done.
I must admit to having the design WAY too large for the fabric piece, but I have enjoyed...at times...  playing with it.
I tried out a vase - made a few bungles on it...but thats OK..
I did the trapunto outline with Vanish thread by Superior threads...and had no problems with it...but it did stand out on the quilt...thats the white thread of course.
I started the feathers with Invisifil, a brownish colour, which was gifted to me by Joanne Threadhead...(loved the colours I received :)
Unfortunately the thread on the top kept breaking, so I changed after a while to YLI 100 silk...which worked wonderfully. Wasn't keen on my colour choice though.
Then I tried the outline with a gold metalic thread, and had breakage problems again.
I am still persevering with that and trying different things.

However Andrea has been ill with a Migraine for the last 3 days, and today I took her into school for about half an hour and then to ER for some treatment as she was just not improving  ( took about 5 hours till we got back home again)  Fortunately she did improve some, however she still has a few problems.  SO I only got to my machine at times.

Fingers crossed for school tomorrow.  Its been a bad few days for her, especially as she had a wonderful time at the School Ball in the weekend,  and sadly this has put her back a bit.

If I am fortunate I may get to work on this tomorrow ... even though I am not pleased with it.

Off to keep Andrea company for a while,  then its off to get some sleep.
