On the Longarm...

Yes, we are alive and well...busy. In the middle of numerous projects that are taking us from the garage to the backyard to the longarm to the sewing room to Guild and to be honest...the golf course, motor rides and beyond. Not as dramatic as "A long time ago in a Galaxy far far away..."
I got a text the other day "What's on the machine?"
Well how about our Grandson's 3rd Birthday present...Elaine made a 'peek-a-boo' with the main theme being "Cars." Which turned out to be kind of funny. The main theme material Elaine picked out...just went up on his bedroom windows as curtains...apparently Grammy and Mom were on the same wave length... happened without any coordinating between them. She does that with her son also...drives me nuts..."Les get the phone it's Trent." Okay, got to go...Quilt till you wilt...


  1. This is very cute. Perfect for a younger child. Are the flaps tied or snapped down or do they just stay free?
    I'm sure your grandson will love it.

  2. Ann, sorry for the delay...they are free floating...if after all is done I go back while still on the longarm and run a 'stitch in the ditch' along the outer edge which seems to keep them down unless lifted by the child. We have thought about adding snaps when he is older and it becomes a wall hanging until plastic wrapped and placed in the trunk of memories.
