Working on the demo table is always a fun thing to do at the Quilt Show, it's really fun answering questions from interested people.
The most asked question was 'Is that design programmed in your sewing machine?' So then I had to explain about free-motion quilting. :-)
I didn't have any blue pegs Sonya, so I used yellow instead!
I'm happy with my quilting, it's nowhere near perfect by any means, but I feel like I getting better!
So now I'm going to start on my other Made in Cherry quilt. I pin basted it using this closing tool I bought from Carol Mahoney (merchant at our last club meeting). It really saved my fingers from getting scratched and sore.
In other news I bought some stickers to bling my Janome.
The other birthday was the Sky Tower, it turned 15 on the weekend.
The last time we had been up the Sky Tower Brad was about seven years old, and he couldn't remember it at all, so I'm glad we went again.

Here's some photos I took from the Sky Tower.
