Can You Hear Me Now???

Seems like every week is busier than the last but with several hours, here and there, my Honeycomb quilt is quilted!!!  And the binding is on! Hoping it will be hand stitched down during my next movie watching session. I could so get used to this machine quilting for certain projects. It is sew fast compared to hand quilting!

And yes, I wear headphones when I sew and quilt. They are wireless, they protect my hearing and I can listen to Pandora, podcasts (so many interesting ones on iTunes), books on tape (currently James Patterson’s’ Private Games) or movies (most recently Love and other Drugs) through my computer or television. The best part is I can hear equally well whether the machine is running or just the seam ripper. No need to turn the volume up and down depending on how much noise is going on. This pair is good for wandering two levels of the house so I don’t miss anything when I go to start dinner or work on the laundry. And just like on airplanes, people tend to leave you alone when you have headphones on!

Have you seen the Scrap Quilt Challenge? If you have scraps you should check it out. I’ll update the link below to take you where you need to go, if you’re interested in voting. It starts Saturday, September 1.

Just for fun, I entered my hand pieced, hand quilted Joseph’s Coat of Many Colors scrap quilt. I made it in 1995 and used it as a wall hanging (60″ x 60″) until recently when it was retired to a nap, I mean lap, quilt.

I’m off to make some Vanilla Peach jam this weekend. Hope you do something creative, too! I’m linking up with these folks with lots of great ideas, if you need one!
