Yeah Toast!

Lets get up and get moving!  Have little breakfast.... If you click here it will take you to a not so great video but hilarious song about TOAST.    Every time toast is made in my house this is whats running through my brain.  YEAH TOAST!  Takes me back to my younger years.  Funny how I went from listening to the comical radio shows to Political radio.  Yes guys and girls 3 to 6 hrs a day I tune in to political radio!  The TV rarely comes on around here till after 5 pm, and then sometimes it too is on political programming.    Now lets tune into some quilting!...
Here's how the quilt on the frame is coming.  Slowly but surely.  A lot of buried threads tails.  The quilted cross is becoming a headstone for thread.  The evening sun coming through the studio windows really makes the quilting show!
This is a first for me of using one thread color on top and a different color on bottom.  Not as hard as some would lead you to believe as long as you test before stitching.  Here's how I test my tension.  Great video, this guy has tons of good ones to watch.  
 While looking at this picture it hit me that there's a design flaw and I'll need to do some Picking and a Grinning on the threads just above the wings....about 2 ft total..UGGG....back killer...
My youngest son came to visit the other day.  I forgot to take a pic so I had to rummage through his facebook page and steel this one.  He went for a job interview yesterday on his first full time job!  Yeah!  Cross your fingers and toes, and send good wishes his way!  He should find out sometime next week if he gets the job.  Good luck Trever!
Until next time "Quilt out of your Comfort Zone!"
