Hello my lovelies. I hope you all had a good peaceful day. I’m afraid I didn’t get any quilty stuff done today. But that’s ok. I told you all yesterday that I was stepping out this morning in order to have a break from my sewing room. And that’s exactly what I did.
We kicked off the day pretty early. Hubby headed out at 7 this morning with my Maisie pooch. My beautiful Maisie had an appointment with a doggy cardio vet. Our little pooch left the house with an empty tummy which of course was more than a little cruel for a dog who loves her food. The doctor’s orders were no food after 9 the night before an ultrasound. So my brave Maisie was put under to have this ultrasound to find out just how bad her heart murmur is. Well I’m very happy to report that my Maisie has a Grade 2 heart murmur and needs no medication for the time being. We all know that eventually the heart disease will progress but for the meantime we will just carry enjoying each other’s company and living a normal life. I am so relieved. When we were summoned to meet with the cardio vet I immediately thought that the news would be bad. I felt like doing cartwheels on the lawn when I came out the vet hospital because the outcome was so much better than I expected.
It’s been a rollercoaster day for this very happy longarm quilter. One positive part of my day is that I visited my LQS for a little retail therapy and also to drop off a few class samples. The best part of my day was fondling fabrics. Because I knew there was a sale on I planned ahead of time what I
needed wanted to buy. It’s quite a while since I made a quilt for my own bed. And I must admit that I don’t really need a new quilt but I do want a new quilt. So these are the fabrics that I have chosen for my quilt …..
Now you would be forgiven for thinking ooooh how dull is that selection of fabric. All greys. Well my plan is to treat this as a scrappy quilt. I will add a few bits from my existing stash to lift it a wee bit. The greys are for piecing the background to which I plan to add some colour in the form of whimsical appliqué work. Once again I’m going to do my best to step out of that ¼” seam allowance box and do something funky. I’m not sure how I’m going to fit this into my already busy schedule but I’m going to give it a good try. Perhaps I will have to get up one hour earlier to meet the challenge. So watch this space.
So my head has stopped spinning now that I have stepped off the rollercoaster. I’m hoping to settle into a productive day tomorrow. I have some important work to get on with. Some of which I might even be able to post about soon.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be making a plan of action and perhaps do some hexie work. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something that makes you happy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
