Thank You Tonya and Lynne

Dear Fearless Liberated Ladies,
I did it! I pieced my first word! Actually 2 words with a tilde! Can you sense my excitement? I sat at the sewing machine with the computer next to my little cutting board. I ripped out a few because I kept getting messed up on background and letter color, but other than that, I did it. I love the little 'c'. My mom's reaction was that I didn't measure. Nope, didn't measure a bit until I attached it to the houses. This quilt is a tribute to the La Canada houses we love and almost lost in the fire. It will be in a silent auction next Saturday. I need to get borders on and start quilting today. Thank you both. Even though you didn't know it, you were there with me yesterday cheering me on.

Wow! Thanks so much! It's fun to do this, but even MORE fun to be an inspiration!

I will tell you I have the same problem whenever I make a light letter against a dark background!

Great Job!

wheee, you did great! I'm so proud of you. Looking forward to seeing a pic of the finished quilt. Gosh darn Bloglines didn't tell me you'd been posting.
