Day 1 for Cheryl


I was planning on starting the FMQ on Friday night or Saturday, but when I got home on Friday. My husband and I had a welcoming surprise from his parents. They decided to drive down from Indiana for a quick visit. So the entire  weekend was very enjoyable visiting with them and having my children and grandchildren in and out of the house. It’s a good thing the date was changed, otherwise I would have started out not being able to get all 14 days in.
I did get a few minutes last night around 9 to throw the watercolor piece into a quilt sandwich and start the FMQ on it. I wanted to start out with something that I could just play with thread and check the tension. To feel the machine hum, it had been last September since I did any quilting. It felt so good to be stitch again, even though it was late at night, I did not want to stop.
