Earlier today I tried posting, but Flickr was broke! I was perplexed to be sure! How could that happen? What would I do without Flickr? It's kind of like not having your phone.....(although I must admit that I am not one of the many who always has a phone at my side and that VERY often it's plugged in the wall getting charged when I go out), I do see my hubby though. He wouldn't be caught dead without his iphone! (Bugs me to death, too!!! Always checking this and that! Eeekkkkks!!) I am getting away from myself though. I just want to show you something.......
I finally finished the quilt for my swap partner for the Fab Little Quilt Swap. Remember when I started with these:

Then I sandwiched it to quilt it and this is what the back looked like before I embellished it:
I had plans and certain criteria that I knew I would take to make it all it could be and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Here's the inside part after I finished it:
And a close-up to see the stitching. Can you see where I embroidered FLIQS 2012 on the tree trunk?
And the whole thing:
Now I need to get to work. I haven't sewn a thing in 3 days and I feel like a real slacker! What oh what will I show you next time?????
