Hello my lovelies! I hope you’ve all had a super day. It seems like the days are finally getting longer. I mean the daylight hours are increasing. I heard that the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday and therefore there will be six more weeks of winter. Well it seems we waited a long time for the cold temperatures to come to my little corner of the northeast of England. Well the cold has definitely set in now. And although you would think that with the cold temperatures it would snow however in my little corner of the northeast of England we have not had a great deal of snow. I suppose if the truth be known, I am grateful that I have not had to struggle with the white stuff but I have to admit that there’s nothing prettier than watching the snow fall from the bay window of my front room. Especially if I don’t have to drive anywhere.
So it’s been a pretty busy day in my little world. I woke up at 4am thinking about how to quilt the current quilt top loaded in my longarm quilting system. I made a plan of action regarding how to quilt the borders last evening but I hadn’t decided what to do with the centre blocks, some of which are appliquéd. At 4 this morning I was working out how to approach quilting the centre part. By 5:30 I was sitting in my front room with a cup of tea and knew exactly what I was doing all over the quilt.
Now I would love to be telling you that I finished the job but sadly I didn’t. However I did get quite a lot done. Here’s a sneaky little peek …..
This as you have probably already worked out is my Four Season Button Club Whimsical Appliqué & Stitchery Quilt project. Today I quilted it using a bit of computerised quilting as well as some Freemotion Quilting. This kind of custom longarm quilting gives me a chance to stamp my own personality to quilt and also it makes it unique.
So that was what I got up to today. Not only did I spend the day doing something that needed doing but it was something that I have been looking forward to doing. I don’t often get to say that. It’s amazing taking a project from simple drawings to right thru to the binding and label stage. I hope to get the quilting finished tomorrow. I’ll have to work out what to use for the binding next.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be doing a wee bit of stitchery work and perhaps some hexie work. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you really enjoy doing. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
