Well that’s all folks. All the tinsel and the twinkle have been put away for another year. My living room looks a bit bare now that Christmas has all but disappeared. So I will have to replace that glitz with some flowers I think. Or perhaps I should get all my bright cheerful scraps and make a scrappy quilt ……
It’s been another quiet day in happy longarm quilter land. After my trip to the supermarket to restock the cupboards I made the dreaded phone call. I couldn’t put it off any longer. I gathered up all the info I thought I would need and I phoned my car insurance company regarding the accident that cause Miss Daisy’s damage the Saturday before Christmas. It’s something I’ve never had to do before and I wasn’t sure how it was all going to work. It took 35 minutes and it was all done. Now we can get on with the next part of this unfortunate adventure. I realise that the hassle isn’t over yet. At the end of the day no one was hurt during the accident and we’ve had a little bit of sunshine earlier and I think we have to look on the bright side and get on with life now. So I plan on looking forward instead of back.
Christmas has just finished and the supermarkets have already jumped to the next season. Look what I found on the shelves of my local supermarket today……
I guess the Easter bunny is getting ready for a visit.
After stabilising my whimsy borders last evening I moved onto tacking the patches of my “A” is for Appliqué December block. It certainly does look different from the drawing I was working from. The coloured fabric patches adds a little life to the block. I can’t wait to get the fine hand stitching started. The words will make all the difference as well.
It’s been a really nice day in happy longarm quilter land. I worked quietly doing a whole lot of mundane things. All my Christmas decorations are put away and things are starting to feel normal again. I have loads of projects I want to get started on but I need to get myself back into the crafting zone slowly. I don’t want to overdose in the first week.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be doing some stitchery work. I hope you have a lovely evening doing something super interesting. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
