Very funny! Things a mother would say in a 24 hour period, condensed into less than 3 minutes. Safe for work.

I finished quilting and binding the “Cosmic Curves” convergence quilt the other day. So it’s done.

I used a lot of gold metallic thread and did free motion embroidery for the sun and around every little circle (waterhole) on the Aboriginal-style fabric.

And I used the same gold metallic thread for the ‘animal tracks’ in the frame, as well as to outline all the ochre lines in the border. You can’t see it in the photos, but I used a maroon thread to outline all the purple lines in the border.

Contours on the earth

I tried to make the earth more ‘earthy’ by adding ‘contour lines’ in a matching thread.
