Hello my lovelies. I hope you all had a super Monday. It’s been an interesting day in happy longarm quilter land.
I got up and my regular crack of dawn time and stepped into my sewing room. I loaded Pat’s first quilt into my longarm quilting system …..
This is one of Pat’s first ever quilt tops. In fact this is one of two identical! And I believe Pat used the EPP method to piece her quilt tops. Pat has entrusted me to do my magic trick to turn her two quilt tops into proper quilts. I hope to give you a progress report on this quilt tomorrow.
Saturday was the last session of my Four Season Button Club Whimsical Appliqué and Stitchery quilt project at Stitchin’ Heaven. Here’s one quilt top pieced by Lesley.
It will look even better once it’s quilted and the special hand painted buttons have been added. I love all the fabrics that Lesley has used to build her Four Season Whimsy. Well done Lesley. Keep up the great work.
It’s going to be a busy week in my little world. Later this week Sarah will be enrolling in university and moving into her new accommodation. Today was quite an emotional day for all of us here in happy longarm quilter land as Sarah was taking her practical driving test. According to Sarah’s driving instructor the percentage of driving students that pass their test first time is only 43%! So we fully accepted that Sarah might have to take the test again. Well I’m swelling with pride when I tell you today that Sarah passed her test on today’s first and only attempt. Oh happy days! I spent ages this afternoon arranging insurance for her. It not easy to get insurance for new young drivers. So tomorrow morning we’re heading off to our dental appointment in style. I will be riding shotgun hootin and hollerin all the way. I’m so pleased.
So now you can see why I thought today was an interesting day. In any given situation I always expect the worse and when the worse doesn’t happen, it’s a bonus. In this case I was prepared to have to find an alternative plan of action regarding Sarah getting her driver’s licence. Well she surprised us all! It’s been a good day in happy longarm quilter land. I look forward to a few more good days in my little world.
So for this evening, this very very happy longarm quilter will possibly be doing some hexie work or some fine hand appliqué. I hope you have a super cosy evening something that makes you happy. If you have some happy positive news to share please contact me. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
