I've actually been making progress on my second casket project. It's a tiny glove scissor case and this is the cuff at the top of the glove. The size of the linen is giving me fits. I just can't see well enough with even my best cheater glasses and even though I have progressive lenses in my glass, they are worthless for stitching this fine. I broke down and bought the highest power cheaters yesterday but didn't have time to stitch last night. I hope they work. I think it's time for a Dazor light with magnifying lens. I'll need it for all the fine work I need to do on the casket.
Close up of the quilting pattern - like how it turned out. As I said before, I finished two last week and I'll take a photo when I have a chance. I have another quilt on the frame but as fate would have it half way though the quilting yesterday the machine started to misbehave badly so I quit for the day. I already ripped a ton of quilting out and that is not easy to do so I walked away and I'm looking for advice from my Yahoo Group on my brand of quilter. Sometimes I hate this machine. I'll only have two quilt tops to go after that! I can't believe I'm always done with almost 20 tops. :-)
Think of me on Wednesday - I'm having a mass removed from my sinus and I'm quite apprehensive. I've never had any sort of surgery and it's freaking me out. :-) I'm sure it will all end well but I hate not knowing what I don't know.
