What a great day I’ve had. I’ve kept myself good and busy all day. Apart from walking the dog first thing this morning I haven’t set foot across the threshold today. I worked really hard on my winter scene. I used one of my favourite useful techniques …..
Making really good circles and ovals can be difficult but my method is easy peasy. Click here to be taken to my preferred method of making really good circles.
Once my really good circles were finished I went on to working out how to represent the horizon …..
I can’t tell you too much about this one. Just let’s say that I worked out a very simple way of depicting the horizon without any struggle. Designing can be so much fun. Especially when you can see a plan coming together! I managed to get my winter scene block all laid out and tacked ready for the fine hand stitching that will secure the patches to the horizon background.
And later I moved onto loading Karen’s quilt in my longarm quilting system. This is a fab quilt. It’s bright and cheerful; perfect for snuggling under on a cold winters’ day. The person who will be receiving this quilt is one lucky person. Karen has chosen a quilting design called Simple Texture by Celine Spader. I can’t wait to start longarm quilting this one.
I found a really good tutorial on YouTube recently. I think this would be a great way of using up my scraps. If only I could find the time to try this one out for myself. It’s called the Tipsy Tumbler Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co, click here to see for yourself.
It’s been a really great day in my little world. The only thing missing today was human contact. I haven’t seen a soul all day but I certainly got loads done. I believe tomorrow will basically be a repeat of today. The quiet gives me a chance to blast thru a lot of the tasks on my To-Do List.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be doing some fine hand appliqué. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something that makes you happy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
