Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a fab day. My day has been a bit lively. I’ve sent replies to many enquiry emails and I sent dozens of text messages. So communication was top of my list today.
Along with communicating with many people I also worked in my sewing room. I worked on Sue’s sampler …..
The photos don’t do the quilt justice. It’s been so dark today that the colours are not true. I’m sure Sue will cherish her sampler for many years to come.
Once I finish longarm quilting Sue’s quilt I went on to loading another. This one belongs to Angie and it’s a fab Irish Chain. I hope to work on this one tomorrow morning.
I had a wee bit of time left before supper and as I had already chosen the fabrics for this next project I thought I’d get started …..
These hearts are part of my One Row at a Time quilt class which I will be teaching at Stitchin’ Heaven. As you can see the technique used to piece these hearts is foundation paper piecing. It’s quite some time since I used this technique and today I was doing it like I’ve been doing it all my life. I will of course post more progress photos and the finished article soon.
I have recently done some machine quilting using my domestic sewing machine. So I have declared tomorrow Be Good to Your Sewing Machine Day. I would have done it today but I just didn’t even think of it until now. I’m going to treat my sewing machine to a good thorough clean. I will change the needle and give the casing a good polish. I’m sure the bobbin area is all choked up with lint from quilting the three layers of a quilt and once I have cleaned that out it will purr like a kitten again. I think while I’m at it I will change the blade in my rotary cutter as I have done loads of cutting recently. Changing the blade will be a treat for me as it will make my cutting jobs so much easier.
It’s been a pretty good day in my little world. My feet never crossed the threshold today and therefore I got quite a lot done. I feel like I’m catching up with my To-Do List. It’s a great feeling.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be making fabric flowers. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something that makes you happy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
