Hello my lovelies. I hope you all had a fab day. I would like to wish all my Canadian friends and very happy Thanksgiving Day. I always enjoyed Thanksgiving Day because it’s a bank holiday. Who doesn’t like having a day off at this time of year!
Weeeeeee. I feel like I’ve come sliding in on the seat of my pants today. The last few days have been rather busy in happy longarm quilter land. I don’t usually longarm quilt over the weekend but I had to squeeze an extra one in. So this is the one I quilted on Saturday …..
And I hand finished the binding on Sunday. This quilt is now ready to be handed over. After finishing all the work on this fab quilt I loaded another into my longarm quilting system …..
This one was pieced by Veronica and the back is so neat that I felt I had to show you. I have been doing appliqué work for many years and my backs never look as tidy as this one. You’ll have to come back tomorrow to see how I quilted it.
Last Friday this very happy longarm quilter and hubby took a road trip down to North Yorkshire. I don’t know if you remember me telling you all that of all the seasons Autumn/fall is my favourite. I look the crisp temperatures but most of all I love the colour of the leaves dropping off the trees and shrubs. Here are a few Virginia Creeper leaves I collected in Yorkshire …..
I have a little something useful to share with you today. What do you think is in this drawer???
This drawer contains a very clever piece of kit. It’s something that I use religiously when I piece quilts.
This drawer is where my ironing board lives when it’s not in use. You simply pull down the drawer front, tug on the ironing board which is folded in half. Flip it open and voila …..
This little drawer is located right beside the knee hole of my sewing machine. So I don’t have to get up to iron seams because it’s right beside my machine. The built-in cupboards in my sewing room are from Ikea. And at the time of setting up my sewing room Ikea had this ironing board in a drawer contraption. It works brilliantly for me as space is at a premium in my sewing room.
It’s been a brilliant day in my little world. My longarm quilting system has worked overtime over the last couple of days. Slowly but surely I am catching up with the tasks on my To-Do List. I hope to carry on moving forward and enjoy Christmas at the same time as everyone else. Only 73 sleeps left before Christmas.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be doing some embellishing work. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
