I wanted to share this WIP with you. Perhaps it will motivate me to put down the books and embroidery for a bit and return to my sewing machine. I have machine pieced many projects, but this is my first attempt at machine quilting. I have all my layers pinned together and ready to go. So far, I have quilted one of the sewing machines. Once I finish with that I will go back and add needles and complete the spools of thread. I'll post it when I'm finished, but please don't hold your breath. I'd hate to see my friends turn blue. ;-)

A few quiet moments with his Sweetheart before leaving yesterday.
To my precious son and close friend:
May this be a time of adventure as you see and experience new places
May the beauty of the setting sun over the ocean take your breath away
May the continual roll of the waves remind you of my constant prayers for you
May you easily recall moments of sheer joy when loneliness sneaks up
May the immense love that I feel for you travel beside you wherever you go
And may God bring you home safely

The rolls shown above are filled with the cream cheese mixture, egg washed, topped with nuts, and ready to be popped into the oven. *I didn't have almonds on hand so I substituted chopped pecans.
