February is gonna be busy....

Everything is back to business on the quilting classes front and whew I'm thinking it's gonna be a crock pot month and dust bunnies galore because this gal has got herself into a whole lotta fun!   I've finished up the two lap quilts my husband needed for a gift and just signed up for my first Hoop Sisters project,  take a peek here.
Isn't that stunning and I'm told for a newbie to this type of machine embroidery it's the bomb so I'll keep you posted on my progress.  The next class will be a Heart Bargello quilt  and this is another technique that is new to me and I will be doing it in batiks.
Have I bitten off more than I can chew err.. quilt, let's hope not because I'm pretty stoked to get onto some fun quilting.   
Did I mention I have a Mother-in Law's 80th Birthday quilt to make and my oldest grandson's Grade 12 graduation quilt to whip up while working on my Christmas Cafe machine embroidery quilt project, FWQS blocks and perhaps I can also squeeze in some knitting.  Hogwash you say, well I beg to differ because remember the Crockpot is on the counter and my Swiffer duster is at arms length so get ready to watch the fabric fly and the thread unwind because Gramma MacKie is ready to have some quilty fun.
