The one thing I like the LEAST about my new studio is that carpet. My first quilting machine started on carpet, then I moved to painted concrete, then to hardwood floors, and now back to carpet. I hate it. But then, I’m not a big fan of carpet, period, so I might be biased.
For one thing, dropped pins are likely to get themselves shoved into the pile of that Berber.
For another thing, this particular carpet is in desperate need of a really good cleaning. Yuck.
It’s kind of fun to take and then post pictures of my surroundings that I haven’t “staged.”
Do you ever “snoop” at pictures that people have posted, wondering about the “stuff” that they left in the frame?
Well, here you go. Here’s the scoop on my stuff:
The quilt has since had it’s borders added. Will is going to quilt this one for the Kids Can Quilt category at the Machine Quilter’s Exposition in New Hampshire. Joe’s quilt is almost pieced. These are the two quilts I’ve mentioned in previous e-mails.
The quilt is one of my own design. I think this is my third version of it. The pattern is almost written. Pretty soon I’m going to be looking for pattern testers for a number of different patterns. If I don’t keep getting sidetracked by a million other things.
(Did you notice MY handwriting in the picture?)
Mary Jo asked about the quilt you could see in the background of yesterday’s picture. That one is a quilt that my friend Miki designed for me when I wrote my 2nd machine quilting book. It’s called Gotcha Covered (the link takes you to Knots & Bolts). The quilt on the pattern cover looks totally different. *MY* version of the quilt is on the front cover of my book.
And somewhere, I have a picture that shows more of it…but where?
Well, this shows more of it, but you have to ignore the extra “stuff” in this picture:
(Though they are awfully cute stuff. Anybody want them? You can have them. Two for the price of one, today only.)
