got iris's quilt loaded yesterday with figure 8 by dave hudson...i get a lot of my pantos from digitech
 fast and friendly service xoxo

and i finished it up this afternoon...i am loving this figure 8 design...

 so very simple ....

some days are easier than others,,,,

hard to believe that nancy's beautiful queensize quiltsmart wedding ring could give me soooo much TROUBLE but

it did...
first with a broken needle cuz where these blocks meet they are very bulky and then with bad tension....that i didn't notice for almost a whole row of dense quilting...ahhhhhhh ~ that means a whole lot of frogging [pick it pick it]
anyway happy to say i am back on track and should finish this beauty later today....fingers crossed xoxoxox  happy wednesday  ~ pam
and sooo happy my other girl is home tonight from a 4 month stay in mexico,,,..yeahhhhhh xoxox
