MANHANDLING BIG RED

I've been absent for a while.  My excuse is:  I've had company since Friday and I've been playing. 

I always have fun when my family is here and this time was no exception.  But, today they all flew home.  Richard at 7:30 AM and Janet and Robert at 3:00 PM.  But, guess what I started.  Right.
I spent an hour manhandling Big Red.

Quilt happy,
Marilyn

Having family over is always nice, but things have to get back to normal at some time. How big is that monster? Are you quilting it on a regular machine? It has been very hot here. (probably nothing like the temperatures you have there) I am still working on the quilt I started to quilt two weeks ago. It's just too hot to sit in my sewing room.

manhandling is the right word for quilting! I've been draggin my feet about quilting these days.

You are blessed to have family come to visit and I know there was mutual joy of being together!
Manhandling the quilt is an accurate description...happy manhandling...good for a workout, eh.

What are those eraser looking things on the ends of your pins?
