Back in the saddle

LOL....I am so thrilled to be back at the sewing and quilting. I had a lady bring me a quilt to handquilt for here yesterday.  Setting it up I finished a table runner that had been hiding on  Here it is.....and Emily from Creative Chicks; if you are reading this...I couldn't access your profile to get back to you..sorry.   But any info I can give you is great with me.....the main thing is to stabilize your tshirts before cutting them they won;t stretch. The rest is a sinch.....really. I thank all of you for your nice comments; sorry I don't get back to all of you...some days I just have time to read and I'm gone again...thank you.
