longarm quilting

Racing to the Deadline

I haven’t been posting much.  I’ve been very busy in my spare time, trying to get this quilt finished in time to enter it into the Circle Lord challenge.  (You can read about that on the special blog they have set up for it, by clicking the link.)  I may not make it, but I’m having fun using my Circle Lord, and becoming more familiar with it.  It was just the push I needed to get it out and start using it.  It’s a wonderful tool.  I’ve been using the basic unit, and the Aztec and mini-Aztec templates, on this quilt.  We had a blizzard this week, which afforded me some extra time at home, since noon Thursday, and I have made some good progress, but I still have a long way to the finish.

Speaking of blizzard, they said we got approximately 10″ of snow, maybe a bit more in places.  Here are some pics I snapped at my house.  This is the view looking out of my front door Thursday evening.

The tops of my lawn chairs sticking up from the drift.

The view from the front of my house, the next morning.

Love this tree in the backyard.

Would you just hurry and fill the bird feeder, please?

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed our brief visit!
