Hello again my lovelies. Have you been productive today? Well there is much progress to report from happy longarm quilter manor today. My Sarah and I headed out to do some Christmas shopping this morning. I suppose that in itself is being productive. I got my hubby’s gift sorted. I decided to go with something practical this year.
The shops are all decorated for Christmas and the festive music is just the thing to get you in the mood for Christmas. I must admit I am looking forward to rolling up the drawbridge and having a quiet time. For me the best part of Christmas is having a break.
I had a few tasks on my To-Do List for today. And to be honest I didn’t think I would get many of those tasks done. Well tonight I’m very pleased to tell you that I managed to get everything on my list done.
One of the tasks on my list was to load Sue’s quilt into my longarm quilting system. Sue attended my Festive Whimsy class back in the spring and summer. And this is her version of my Whimsy quilt …..
Sue stepped out of the box and out of my comfort zone and used a dark background. And I’m so glad she did because she has inspired me to use a dark background on some of my upcoming project. After seeing how I quilted my Festive Whimsy Sue decided she wanted a similar quilting job done on hers. I hope to get started in the morning.
I went on to cut strips for a project which is in the planning …..
By the time I left my sewing room my new project looked like this …..
This is one of next years’ class projects. I’m enjoying setting up my new class projects. All the fabric that I have been collecting over the year is finally being used! My biggest problem is deciding which fabric to use.
It’s been a pretty good day in my little world. This morning I was stressing over Christmas. I worried I wouldn’t get everything done in good time for Christmas. After looking at my work list and diary things are not as bad as I thought. I have plenty to keep me busy between now and Christmas but if I use my time wisely I will definitely get to Christmas at the same time as everyone else.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be doing some stitchery work. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you really enjoy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching.♥ ♥
