Halloween In June

Well people have Christmas in July so we are having a Halloween party in June of sorts. Today my sweet neighbor wanted to learn to quilt so she came down to our Sunday meeting.  Linda was more than glad to teach and mentor her and I was more than glad for the company and also the learning experience.

I normally do not cut, I am learning. Gary used to do all my cutting but I am trying to take some work off him and also I want to learn so I can cut when I need it. Well that means when we are sewing a lot of the time Linda is cutting handing to me to sew and now today I saw the process from the beginning to end.

I guess you wonder what is wrong no one used the long arm.. Well do not get me started *&^$#$   it is down for the count again after having a service doctor here this week I do not know what is going on but I need to find out soon we are getting behind.

Well Ali came and she loves Halloween. I believe when she gets her own home it will be decorated up 365 days of Halloween.. I love Halloween also and so does Linda so it was just a wonderful day. Ali went home with her quilt top finished. Now when my long arm machine gets well she will come back and quilt it and then we will bind it and she will have her beautiful quilt. We have gotten another person addicted to fabric and sewing. She made us both laugh “I can not believe you have a sewing machine that cuts the thread and you do not have to use scissors.”

Here is Ali’s Happy Halloween Quilt. I look forward to seeing her make many more beautiful works of art.

    I think it is really wonderful that an OLD dawg like Linda is willing to help a eager YOUNG pup in learning… She has always been wonderful @ teaching us young pups!!!! 🙂

    Linda is ONE of a KIND, I think. It was nice of her and Chris to
    teach Ali. From what I hear, a good time was had by All 3!!! Look Out, Fred Hunter will be showcasing them soon on Channel 6!!!
