day fifteen

We had a peaceful morning around here today and I got quite of bit of free-motion quilting done on my brother's baby present. Oooppss... that might have just given it away.. oh well.. Anyhow as I was doing my usual swirls I made the one like above and had a revelation! I've been doing these types of swirls for years and all that time it never occurred to me that I was making my maiden name initial in Russian! My maiden name in Russian is Хоровер and in script that X is very swirly and I made it mine.. go figure! Yes my mind wanders during free-motion stitching and I find it very meditative. So I decided that from now on that is my signature free-motion pattern! So if eons from now you're looking at a piece that looks like mine, but you're not sure, look for the swirly XXXX...

Sometimes when we turn off the mind, our auto pilot really connects with who we are. Your XXX's are quite special!
