So this is me at work!!! And our beautiful oldest grand-daughter, Bobbie!!! She is gorgeous!!!
I know, I am a bit biased in my opinions :^) She stopped by for a short visit, love every chance I get to see her!
And here we are at Kirk's Ferry in Brownsville Oregon, the town where they
filmed Stand By Me!! This is a really fun restaurant!!
So,introductions, our nephew and neice, Warren and Sharon on the left, then my husband, me and Cooper, youngest son Drew of Briese Custom Concrete, his wife Jess and our youngest grandchild, Hayden! This was just last week.
This is the postcard I made for our September exchange. I called it Solar Flares!
|Fabric cut and ready to go. I used one of those circle makers that you |
can actually iron on and they don't melt.
|I traced the outline, then did a running stitch.|
|Ready to gather.|
|All gathered and ready to press.|
|All stitched on the the top, layered and ready for quilting.|
|And all quilted. I had another idea for this, but when I was |
constructing it we heard there had been solar flares,
so plans changed!!!
Next, satin stitching the outside of the postcard. I usually go around the edge a minimum of 3-4 times. It makes for a very sturdy and nice looking edge!!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Take Care, Happy Quilting, and keep those needles sharp and changed!!! Martha
