What's going on.....!

What a busy week it's been! I haven't been home all week. Darn.... when will it slow down a bit?

Since school has been out, there were 2 things I wanted to work on, EQ6 and more play dates with Penelope. Well, tonight I did both!

I wanted to practice my feathers, you know, so I'm no longer a chicken! lol

They are not perfect but at least I'm getting some practice time.

In my MQX classes with Dawn Cavanaugh, we learned different ways to do a feather. So, I've been practicing all of them. For me, some techniques are much easier than others.

I would really like to be able to create those gorgeous feather designs that you see on quilts. Anyway, the more I practice, the better I'll get!

The weather here hasn't been that great, so my new bike has been sitting in the garage. I was going to take it to the shop today but the wind was unbelievable. Besides, I am so tired, just looking at the wind took any ounce of motivation I had.

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

I have always loved feathers too. I wish that I was better at them.

There really never seems to be enough time these days. I think we can all relate.

That's was the hardest thing for me to grasp....I could do anything if I would just practice, practice and practice some more! I would get frustrated if I couldn't do something perfect the first time, instead of being happy that I improve from the beginning of a quilt to the end.

I need to do that, too... practice, practice, practice. Thanks for the inspiration!! Yours look great, by the way!

Your feathers are looking fantastic! Practice makes perfect! I just need to practice more too! How to fit in everything that I "want" to do with everything that I "need" to do! *sigh*
