Of course, we should be friends..Anyone who starts with a picture of their featherweight has to be my friend.  I'm also discussing on the Featherweight-crank machine discussion site.

Hi Carol.  I'm down to one pug now, but until last year I had two.  They are awesome doggies!

I haven't checked in for a long time, but I have been doing lots of quilting.  Trying to finish up old projects and even some I inherited from my grandmother.

Mostly I do traditional pieced quilts and I am trying to learn machine quilting to cut down on the cost of my hobby.  I retired from full time work two years ago and I spend about half my year in Texas babysitting for my two year old grandson.  I've made three small quilts for him in the last year. 

In SD this summer I repaired and finished a grandmother's flower garden top with  small diamonds between the flowers that I bought on ebay.  It was all handpieced out of flour and feed sacks and deserved to be rescued. It looks great as a topper on a queen bed. I also did a couple of table toppers to audition some patterns.  My biggest UFO is a machine embroidered and appliqued wall quilt in Christmas colors.  Maybe this year....

Today I finished a modern flying geese twin size quilt with a white background, bright vari-colored geese and turquoise binding. 

I have taken two classes on Craftsy which have been most helpful.  Both concerned quilting on a domestic machine.  I took a class several years ago on Quilt University to design a quilt studio from scratch, which I did for my studio in SD.  Every piece of furniture is on wheels and is repurposed from kitchen cabinets.  I also built a drop-in sewing machine table with a large quilting area using a plastic folding table (adjustable legs), styrofoam insulation and a slick melamine surface.  I pay close attention to ergonomic principles and try to have the best work habits in order to minimize muscle and joint pain (lots of arthritis). 

I enjoy genealogy and our family also has stories of wagon trail journeys.  I have been working on scanning all the family pictures that I have and getting them and my grandmother's stories together so it will all make sense to future generations.  I have also digitized about thirty years of color slides this fall.

I am planning on attending the Houston Quilt Festival Nov. 1 with my daughter and her friend from SD.  That always inspires me and gives me ideas for the future.

It sounds like we have a lot in common so I am excited to participate more frequently on this site.  Creatively yours,  Carol (venusgma)
