Wickedly Difficult...

I’ve begun edge stitching around the circles. Today I managed to get 15 or so done (plus some semi-circles at the edges).

What’s making the process so difficult is the amount of bulk I’m having to contend with and the fact that the fused circles are lifting from the quilt surface as I bunch and twist the pinned top and batting in order to get all the way around each circle. 133 more words

Wind Watching

I’ve begun my next project – this is a photo I took at least a dozen years ago when I was still paragliding. Retired, I had time to spend in Parrsboro (a two hour drive from Halifax) hanging out wind watching with these three paragliding pilots. 426 more words
