More Free Motion
After despairing of my free motion quilting last week, it went much better this week. Primarily, I think, because I was back in the groove and because I remembered to use a NEBS bobbin along with the Aurifil thread in the needle. My Viking machines are much happier with this combination. How could I have forgotten? Two of the samples are done with the walking foot, by the way. I don't want you to think that I can free motion straight lines like that.
Some of you know that I worked at Berea College for nineteen years and I am so proud of the work the college does. So, I'll share this USA Today story with you. It mentions a group of students who went to Selma last week along with a group of twelve who went from the college's group of 59, fifty years ago. Listening to the president's speech and reading this story has been very emotional for me.
I am so enjoying the rain today. It's such a lovely change from the snow of recent weeks. Feels more like I think March should be.
