walking...

...with a walking foot, that is. I can't believe the end might be in sight for my quilt! On the fourth, we were at E's parents' and I tried out his mom's new machine. She sent me home with a walking foot from her old machine, and, man, does it make a difference. A little more quilting and then binding, and I may have something to show off soon!
I tried out a little embroidery on the new curtain. I love this look, simple and hand-made. Like this linen noren we bought on a trip to Japan 2 years ago. I do love linen. Speaking of which, I discovered I heart linen recently. Her hand applique is absolutely lovely.

We've had Live Earth going in the background today, and they did a great job on the ads and short films between the music, like the knitted earth here and one that promotes taking reusable bags for shopping. And Chris Rock's veggie chopping had E and me chuckling!

  3. Thanks for the tip about the walking foot. I have been debating about whether to buy one for my machine - it sounds like it might be worth it (and might make the quilting process a bit less scary!)
    Looking forward to seeing your quilt.
