Free Motion Quilting

I signed up to do the Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) challenge and haven't had the time to do most of it.  I did watch Leah Day's video today and it's like a quilting light bulb lit up over my head.  Now, for everyone who knows me, please sit down before you read the next line...ok...ready?

I....THINK...I...CAN...DO...THIS...ONE! 

Yes, you read it right.  I think I can do this one.  Want to see what I'm referring to?  Here's the link to her blog page and just watch the video.  Sometimes the simple things are the best.

It couldn't have come at a better time also.  The bucket list drawing this month is FMQ and I might use this as my example.  :)  Don't you just love it when a plan comes together?

Oh yes...I also promised you a better picture of mom's snowman mini.  Here it is.  Ignore the yellow/goldenrod colors at the top.  I hung the snowman over another mini that I'm doing for her and that's what you're seeing in the background.

Thanks Teresa. I think she'll like it also. Brenda did a terrific job on the embroidery.
