Hello my lovelies. Have you had a good productive day? I’m very happy to say that my day has been very productive. I’m so pleased to be able to tick a couple of tasks off my To-Do List. I’m so pleased with myself that I feel like doing cartwheels in the front garden! It’s really nice to see my To-Do List getting smaller.
My little car, we call her Miss Daisy, was collected first thing this morning and taken off to the car dealership for its’ annual service. The gentleman who collected Miss Daisy was a lovely man. And I’m sure he will look after Miss Daisy as if she was his own. Miss Daisy will be zooming around time again tomorrow.
I spent several hours in my sewing room today. I longarm quilted Claudia’s hexie quilt. This quilt is an I Spy quilt of sorts. Claudia collects loads of interesting fabric and fussy cuts the fabric into hexagons. While I was quilting I spotted butterflies, flowers, lion faces, birdies, cherries, chicks, hearts and apples just to name a few. The colours are all bright and cheerful. Claudia made a separate cushion cover panel which I longarm quilted using the same quilting design as the quilt. The quilting design that Claudia selected is Festival by Barbara Becker and a bright gold thread which matches the borders so well. I think Claudia will be pleasantly surprised when she collects her quilt. This quilt will cheer up any room.
Before finishing up in the sewing room for the day I decided to load Ada’s quilt. This quilt top is all hand pieced. Ada is a dedicated hand piecer. And this quilt took her sometime to finish as she was battling a few health problems. I’m glad she’s back on her feet again. I’m looking forward to working on this quilt.
Once I finished in my sewing room I went back to work finishing up yesterday’s paperwork. My Sarah sat patiently helping me complete the job …..
It’s been quite a breezy day in happy longarm quilter land. I’m quite happy to have been busy indoors for most of the day. Tomorrow I plan on doing more of the same.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be either working on hexies or doing some fine hand appliqué work. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something that makes you happy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
