Last time I wrote I was having machine problems. Well, I never actually did anything, but I have been able to continue quilting. I just had to slow down a bit. I am not convinced there's not a problem, though. I tend to quilt fast -- I have a harder time making smooth lines when I go slowly.
Anyway, I have finished quilting the sky and also the water. I quilted in different colors so it would look like the buildings are reflecting. I think it came out well. I will quilt some of the buildings this weekend and get a start on the beading and embroidery. If anyone has skills in those two areas and wants to help, let me know!
Here is a photo of the backing fabric. The wildness helps hide all the threads. Also, I fixed the setting where it was only letting Blogger people make comments. Sorry about that! I'm still getting into this and haven't explored everything yet.
