Another Section Quilted

First of all, 
After a week of busy/crazy,  there was finally time to sit and watch another lesson in the Craftsy class -The Essentials of Free Motion Quilting.  What I realized is that too many days away from practicing has caused me to slide backwards a step.  But at least it was two steps forward and one step back -so there was still progress.
This lesson was on spirals and sharp points.  It seems I did okay - it is certainly usable as part of a quilt and that  is what matters -along with a bit of practice and progress.  So without further prattle from me, here is the finished section.
You can click on the photo to enlarge it - but please don't be too critical. (((grin))) I have decided that I am happy with it.

As for the reason for a busy/crazy week,  I have been finalizing the costumes for the play that I am helping with. (I got all my costume sewing completed!) And I also had to do some "middle-aged man" things - also known as medical tests.   These co-pays on insurance are really taking up all of my disposable income.   I am just happy that I have insurance!    I have also had to take Mother for medical appointments since she is no longer able to drive safely.

Life goes on - and it is good.  I have a special post scheduled for tomorrow-  March 18th.  Please come back for it. It should post at midnight tonight. (I am in the Central time zone.)
