She's Still Helping Me
Last night after finishing the Kansas Trouble block, I went back to the hand quilting. I really need to get some better lighting. I'm quilting with black thread on black and I simply can't see. Seven's help is hindering me as well.
I finally gave up on quilting in my lap. A different hoop might help, but Seven wants to be in my lap at the same time and it just doesn't work well. So, I looked for my Q-Snap quilting frame which my parents bought me when I first started working on the DWR.
There's been very little quilting done on the frame, but I did use it to hold a blanket I cross-stitched. Anyway, got the frame setup, quilt loaded and sure enough, it needed a QCC inspection. Yep, Seven thought it was a nice place to hang out. I finally convinced her it wasn't a large hammock made especially for her and got to quilting.
I finished up the first block and started on the second block before going to bed. Who knows how much I'll get done today.
