Oh wonderful Mumford & Sons how I love you!! I absolutely love this band. It has been so hard to pick just one of their songs! I love the folksy feel of their songs. Their videos are awesome. I love the feel they have and how fun they are.
I hope you enjoyed the song selection for this week. I would LOVE to hear if you liked it, or if you have any suggestions.
This week on Auditory Deliciousness we welcome Augustana. This song is awesome! I love the piano (pianos -haha) in it. The singers voice is incredible.
If you ever have a song or artist you want to reccommend please comment. I would love to hear. Likewise if you don't like the songs I have been posting then you better just reccommend something you do like!!
This week on Auditory Deliciousness I present you with Missy Higgins. She is from Australia (not that that means anything other than the fact I REALLY want to go there). I am sure you have heard her song "Where I stood" before, it has been played on the radio a lot. Today I picked her song "Steer". I love the lyrics in this song. I just have to tell myself "you can steer!"
I made a quilt almost 3 years ago for my niece Bethany. I just came across the pictures and thought I would share. I love the colors on the quilt. They are so girly and fun. Here is Bethany (Obviously older! Isn't she adorable)
Here is the quilt before it was quilted
The half circles around the edge were fun but took forever (especially all the buttons!)
Here it is all finished. I machine quilted with my walking foot in the center.
Around the outside I quilted with my free motion foot. If you haven"t ever free motion quilted, let me just assure you that it is HARD. You have to be really good and keep your speed fast enough that it doesn't loose traction on the quilt but slow enough that you can keep track of what you are doing.
Needless to say this is the only time I have used my free motion foot. I have a few projects I have been working on that could use this technique though. We will see!
I even quilted Bethany's name on the border of the quilt. I love this quilt and hope she is getting a lot of use out of it.
