Nadin Comes to America

She is here!   All the way from the Philippines, 12 hours flying time... about an 23 hour trip total adding in the car ride home. Nadin, Mom and Dad all arrived safely on Monday.

Nadin! (Her quilt in the background.)
No sewing in the last couple of days, however, here's a few shots of my FMQ on the old Christmas quilt I have had sitting partially quilted for a couple of years.  I am slowly getting the hang of it and  happy that I had this to practice on.

A star and swirl pattern, good for beginners.

Working on consistent stitch length.

Also following fabric patterns. Sorry about the lint.

Hope your having a great week, we are enjoying beautiful fall weather.


  1. Nadin is absolutely beautiful! I love that she came to visit you. Thanks for sharing your Christmas quilt but most of all thank you for sharing your granddaughter!!!

  2. Great picture. She's a beautiful girl. She looks so happy sitting there with her quilt and her little friend. I'm sure you're enjoying having them here.

  3. Beautiful girl!! Love your quilting!!!
