What I'm working on...

Again, it's been a while since I've posted. I haven't completed anything since my last post. I did attend the John Deer embroidery event. He has some interesting history on machine embroidery. After the first 3 hours of a 2-day event, I got feed up with the event. It was heavily focused on sales, not just his products, but every quilting/sewing tool imaginable. Even to the point of pushing top of the line embroidery machines. Instead of me paying to attend, they should have paid me for my time. In all honesty, I can say that I did learn something but for the price and time, I will not consider attending one again too soon. Here is a photo of a scarecrow pattern I have that I'd like to finish before fall. I've only had it a few months in my stash. I'm hoping it doesn't become something hanging around for years.
Here is a fall scene I made with Dakota Collectibles embroidery designs. I hope to get this one done by the end of the month. I haven't been slacking, just working on tops but no major finished yet.
Another fall scene I worked this week. This one is from Anita Goodesign machine embroidery design called Covered Bridge. This is gorgeous. I don't like the 30+ color changes, but it sure makes a difference to the shading in the final result. Hope to finish this one too by the end of the month.
I did piece the quilt top from my previous post. Even got around to adding the borders. I just need to make the back before it goes into my WIPs pile. Not sure what I'm doing with it at the moment. I completed my last week as President of a large guild this month. I'm really excited about that. Now, I just have to plan the Quilt Show being held in September. By the way, the cell phone cases went over really big. I think only one person did not have a cell phone so I suggested they re-gift it or use it for their I-pod.
I also met with a hand quilting group, hoping to persuade them to quilt my DJ quilt. No go. While they admired the quilt, they would not touch it with their thread and needles. Gosh, guess I'll have to start back working on it myself.
I feel like so much is in my head but I can't remember it to type it all. Now I remember that I want to share that my birthday is this Tuesday, July 28th. It's not a big year and I don't have big plans but do enjoy having compared to NOT having them. VBG
Enjoy your week and maybe I'll chat with you soon.
