Think about this.....

...the only thing scarier then reaching out to the unknown is settling for that with which we are comfortable.

Sometimes it's just fun to just play on the long arm. I didn't feel like doing anything intricate since I just had that with the two previous quilts and I wanted to have a few hours to just enjoy my thread and my machine.

That's what charity quilts are for: To hone smoothing skills while moving the machine around the cloth, and, letting yourself become more acquainted with the whole quilting process.

We ended up running to Hastings yesterday to Jami's Variety Store (where I purchased the fabric for Arcadia Avenue) to obtain some more black (remember, I messed up block #7 at camp). They were out of the black linen (of course). We ended up down at Sisters Quilt Shop and she had something pretty darn close and so purchased a 1/2 yard from her.

After finally returning home (of course, you can't just go to Hastings and leave right away), I started on my Arcadia Avenue #8 (since eight was robbed for #7's error) which is where I left off last night.
