Machine quilting with 'Nessie'

My solution to feeling a bit flat :)

...was to play on a practise piece ... and do some of my background fillers.

This was an experimental applique piece.  I may do it differently next time.

Luckily Andrea said she would like a pillow :)

Now to do some of my lessons in Photoshop.
