Where's Waldo?

OK, maybe "Where's Lori?" would be more like it.

I've been hard at work on the new store blog (separating business from pleasure).  I'm pretty pleased with how it's looking, so I hope you will give it a peek.  The link is on the right.

Anyway, I HAVE been sewing, on a wide variety of things.
First, for a class sample, this simple table runner:

Then, another sample, this one for a beginning paper piecing class.

Both of those projects are very simple and straight-forward, so you might suspect that there has been more going on.  There has!  Here is the instigator of some TROUBLE:

Katherine McNeese LOOKS innocent enough, finishing the binding on one of her "Improv Log Cabin" quilts.  She taught the class at the shop for me last weekend and I couldn't resist joining the fun.

I had NO business doing this.  Have I ever mentioned how many unfinished projects I have?  I am making progress, now that I have learned to machine quilt my own small pieces.  I love to hand quilt, but I can't do it fast enough to ever catch up with everything.

Speaking of quilting, I have begun the quilting on the graffiti quilt that is due in January and may be on exhibit at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in February. I am much happier with "sort of straight lines" than I was the other day when attempting "perfectly straight lines".

(Those are my "Machingers", quilting gloves that really do make a difference.)

I am NOT an instigator! I???
