nerd alert!

I had some really nerdy exciting quilting news the other day, but I don't have too many people to share it with! The other day, I realized after being CONVINCED that I can't drop the feed dogs on my machine that I actually can! I just figured I'd never really be able to try free motion quilting and might just have to get a new machine some day to expand my quilting options. I was so excited and Buddy was happy for me too, especially when I explained to him what feed dogs are. He's really interested in how a sewing machine technically works, and I honestly have little clue. Well, he's amazing and empathic and really takes an interest in things I'm excited about. I couldn't ask for more. So, now, I think I'm going to try some free-motion stuff. Seems intimidating and painful at first but sounds like with a lot of practice it gets easier.

Well, I don't have a photo on this computer of projects I'm working on right now, so I'll just leave with a "I wish I was there" picture. This is where I go to in my mind when everything in life is stressful and I have knots in my back and shoulders so bad they actually frighten massage therapists. I think island life is much healthier for me than city life...

Thanks for looking!
