Meet Paduche....This little fellow is my "Watch Monkey". He was mascot to a trip I took with 7 other quilters to the Paducah, KY Quilt Show in April of 2008. We stopped at Subway for lunch on the trip there and I won him out of one of the stuffed animal machines. I named him our mascot and he went happily along with us to the show! Now he hangs on my machine and watches everything I do. He sees every quilt go on the machine, he sees them come off. He hears me when I might use some harsh language on "Sassy", my machine, and he hears me squeal with delight when I quilt a design to suit me! Don't you think he is so cute!
Paduche was about as glad as I was when I finished this quilt tonight. It was due off the machine yesterday but as I said in a previous post, my mother-n-law was hurt, so it had to wait until today. And to give you a quick update, she has a fracture to her right ankle and her left knee is really bummed up but luckily no tendon or tissue damage. She will be hobbling about for a good while but knowing her, she will try to do everything she can get by with. We will have to watch her like a hawk! We all are just glad it was no worse!
And this 30's quilt went on the frame tonight...Let's see if tomorrow will come and go without happenstance so I can show you a "finished" photo sometime tomorrow evening!
