Sitting Pretty

Teddy went to the groomer today.  When he goes to see the groomer he expects to have his picture taken as soon as he gets home.  So I took the quilt out of the hoop and put it on the floor and took some pictures. (click pictures to enlarge)

I made a quilted pillow several months ago using Presencia 40 weight thread for the hand quilting.


They have selected a picture of it to use in a new advertisement.

I also used this thread in the reindeer quilt.

    Congratulations on having your pillow in an advertisement for Prescenia thread. What an honor! I was just going to say I would love to see how you do your hand quilting but I see there is a video to the right of the comments section. I’ll have to check it out.

    Hi Tim, Teddy is a lucky fellow – he gets more haircuts than me! I’m working on one quilt, meanwhile you have completed about ten; therefore I read all your posts for inspiration. Yay, I’m almost ready to hand quilt (with Presencia). Thanks Teach. Love you guys.

    not a surprise to those of us who folow uour blog that Presencia would choose to showcase their thread with your beautiful work. Agree with Kristen — do hope your work is credited — and a lifetime supply of their thread would be a fitting “Thank you”.
    As for darling Teddy – hard to say if he looks sweeter napping or posing!

  16. Marla says:

    The stitching on your pillow is stunning. Presencia made a good choice to highlight their thread.

  17. Lorij says:

    Tim, I’m supposed to be getting your posts each time but somehow Everytime a comment is posted for the last few days I’m receiving them. That shouldn’t happen. Can you please fix it.
    Thank you.
