Shiner was our first English Setter who taught me the value of "stopping to smell the roses" ... or in her case swimming after a duck, chasing a worn-out frisbee, or hunting down the RIGHT stick thrown in the woods.
We should all enjoy life as much as Shiner did ... so I choose to look through Shiner's View ...

I've been wanting to try some straight-line quilting for some time now ... but I don't have a walking foot ... Allison at PioneerValleyGirl suggested that I check with my LQS. I was able to find one on eBay and anxiously awaited it's arrival ... it came today.
It doesn't fit.
However, I decided to try to make the cover for the pillow tonight for my neices new bedroom set (my inspiration pillow is here). And since it 1) was small enough and 2) wouldn't have a visible back ... I decided to go for it!
I LOVE it! It's already been through the washer and dryer ... so it's nice and crinkly and I am really really happy with the result. I hope I can find a walking foot soon so that I can make a larger attempt.
All the best!
