You do it all, don't you? Beautiful work! I'm envious of your Barnett hoop... I hope to treat myself to one soon.

The quilting and knitting are wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

Glad you are putting money into things that will last you forever like that hoop that improves posture I am told (while quilting) and the thimble to protect your fingers... neither I can use.. so I spend money on thread and fabric instead! lol I also am stressed when I try to machine quilt and find it not fun... but I can hand quilt til the cows come home. Thanks for a great post! Kathi

I love this post! I have been preparing some embroidery for a lap quilt, but am not that comfortable with my machine. After the top is done, I now feel encouraged to sit with my sewing skills and hand quilt. Thanks so much.
Plus: I need to add more beads to my knitting!

Love the Lone Star colors. You are like me as far as being traditional and sometimes it is good to have things pop with color. Striking. I also love hand quilting. Keep us posted on how you like the hoop. The caddy is very nice.

Such beautiful quilts! I know what you mean about the peacefulness of hand quilting. I was so stressed out trying to wrangle my big quilts through my little machine and then agonized over the tension. One day I sat on the couch and quilted a whole baby quilt while watching a marathon of old St. Elsewhere episodes on TV. Never looked back .....

Gorgeous quilt frame! You should get the hubby to take a picture of you sitting in front of it so we can see how big it is. Your projects are all gorgeous as well. I have that Fire Dance kit sitting on my desk in the color Dragon Fire, but I need to finish Evenstar first.

It strikes me as funny that machine quilting is now the default - back umpty-bazillion years ago when I began quilting, hand quilting was the norm and I was the lone machine quilter. I can remember showing a quilt top at my grandmother's Quilters Guild meeting back in the 70's and having all the members show horror that I'd machine PIECED it...
