messygoat Trying to decide if I'm going to rip out that pink swirl... And the 11 others like it. #notwhatisawinmyhead 3d
  •   sewmama123 Love it! Leave it in!!!! 3d
  •   the.embroidery.lady Looks great - I'd leave it :-) 3d
  •   paradisebreezequilts Yes! Leave it in! It looks great 🏻 3d
  •   afewscraps Its not offensive, sounds like you're just underwhelmed. You can make up for it without having to spend so much time taking it out! 3d
  •   messygoat @afewscraps yeah... And the scale is off compared to the rest. But I think I've figured out how to rescue it without ripping it out. 3d
  •   laurapmalone Noooo! 3d

messygoat Every time I change thread, which is often on my current (secret) project, I have to test the tension again. The lavender in particular is really fiddly and requires a lot of customization. Weird. 4d

messygoat Fence Photos Finally. "Tree," finally finished. All pieced by machine except for 2 junctions that I covered with hand-appliquéd bits to get the look I wanted. 48"x58" or thereabouts. 2 layers of batting, and quilted so densely it's almost rigid. 1w

messygoat Not even 13 yet. I am doomed. For reference, I'm just over 5'5". 2w
  •   theoriginaltrash My 13 yr old is an inch off my height. *le sigh* 2w
  •   bellasarahlena Gah, her legs are MILES long! What I wouldn't give! 2w
  •   trilliumdesign My 13 yr led is 2" taller than me. So far. 2w
  •   episcofam Holy smokes! H's legs!!! 2w
  •   messygoat @bellasarahlena @episcofam when we are sitting, I'm a little taller. When we stand up, she's a LOT taller. Her waistline is about 5" higher than mine. 2w
  •   the_littlest_thistle I passed my mum by the time I was 11, and kept going another 7", but I ended up with the leg length of my 5'10" dad, and the torso length of my 5' mum, so I'm a tad disproportionate ;o) 2w
  •   smiling1nhsv Legs! 1w
  •   pattelaine Two beauties ! 1w
