It’s the middle of the week. Wednesday is usually a good day. First thing this morning I set off for Stitchin’ Heaven to catch up with the Wednesday girls and Mick of course. We drank coffee and ate cake (yes even I couldn’t resist the chocolate cake today). I think we covered every topic of conversation known to man. We discussed all things patchwork and quilting, the new range of fabric that just arrived in shop, fracking and how quickly the summer has flown by. Although I feel like I have been talking for England, today we did not manage to solve all the problems of the world but we will continue to work on it during our future meetings.
I simply worked on some EPP hexagons. I’ve been working on this particular quilt for what seems a lifetime.
I decided a long time ago that it wasn’t a race and as long as I enjoy working on it once in a while it doesn’t matter how long it takes to finish it. A few days ago I dragged it out and started piecing the pale colour hexagons for the first border. As it happens I pieced quite a few during the day and in between one topic of conversation and another. It was a very pleasant day. I say this quite often and I will say it again; I do enjoy spending time with like-minded people.
This post is going to be short because this very happy longarm quilter is going to hit the road again tomorrow morning.
I will spend a little bit of time this evening getting ready to teach my Mystery Whimsical Applique & Stitchery Project tomorrow at Stitchin’ Heaven.
I’m very excited about sharing my version of how-to work on hand applique and stitchery. All will be revealed about how I approach the task and what gives me good results. The first section of my new design will be revealed tomorrow. It’s going to be a ta-dah moment……
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be packing for tomorrow and then it will be feet up and possibly working on EPP hexagons. I hope you have a lovely evening doing whatever pleases you. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
