My newest friend...

 This is my newest toy. The Husqvarna Opal 670. I've never had a computerized type of machine and it is soooooo much fun.

And, as I was recently bitten by the quilting bug, I also got a walking foot. Yay! That quilt I was working on for my sil went through this like butter. No strain at all!

And speaking of the quilt, here is the finished product.

 I also played with the fonts, and added her name and all the first initials of the family here.

I got a bit hurried here, and it shows, but I absolutely had to get this mailed off today. As it is, with the holiday, it won't arrive there before Wednesday. feels so good to be completed. 

 Here is a closeup of the binding. Funny I didn't take a photo of the back of the quilt.
 So that is one gift complete, and I sure had lots of fun making this lap quilt. Much love and prayer went into the making of this little quilt. I sure hope she feels even just a smidgen of it each time she puts this quilt on her lap.

Now that this is done, I have begun working in earnest on my pincushion(s) for the upcoming blog hop. Nope, no peaking :-)  Unless things change, my date to show is September 13th, so it really isn't far away.
