I want to capture some of the wonderful sights my son and his family are enjoying in Scotland. Here are some pictures they sent recently. I am so thankful they have friends to go on adventures with in their new country. I believe Katie said this was Sir Walter Scott's home (the "castle house" as Emma and her friend Andrew called it).
My beautiful daughter-in-love and sweet baby Haddon, and a family shot.
I worked on a quilt this afternoon. I'm ready to take the Craftsy class on improving my machine quilting skills. After doing this for about eight years now, I should be better than I am. One thing I learned today......don't pick a backing thread without looking through all your thread first. I picked a grey, thinking I didn't have a navy cone, but I did! The backing was navy and my filler quilting isn't that great. The bobbin thread showed up a lot more than I would have liked on the backing.
Can't post a full picture yet. The block is going to be in the next Quiltmaker 100 blocks issue. I submitted my quilt and they decided to pass on it. Oh well, win some and lose some.
