Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a great day. Mine was spent flitting around doing something and nothing. I had a couple of meetings, answered several emails and returned a few phone calls. I was glad to be able to hide indoors today. It was rather cool and damp even though the sun came and went.
And then I decided to do something a little creative. So I dragged out this little UFO that I started last summer I think. This little quilt which was coloured using Caran D’Ache water soluble wax pastels needed some freemotion quilting. So I prepared my machine and put my machine quilting gloves on and got the job started …..
And I carried on …..
And I did some more …..
And on until the job was done …..
But the job isn’t done yet. I want to add some more embellishments. So I need to select some buttons and beads and whatever else might break up the negative spaces.
I tried to get a few more reasonable photos of my red hexagon quilt. So I took it outside thinking I might get better colours.
I’m so pleased with this quilt now that it’s finished that I feel the need to start another hexagon project but this time it will be a grandmother’s garden design.
It’s been a great day in my little world. I did a variety of tasks that made me feel like I was getting somewhere in life. It’s always nice to be able to tick all the jobs on my To-Do List. I was in contact with several people for several different reasons. Human contact is the best part of my day. I’m not a loner by any means. My Maisie spent most of her day supervising the work I did …..
Today I’m going to leave you with an interesting quote … A wise woman wishes to be no one’s enemy; a wise woman refuses to be anyone’s victim ~ Maya Angelou
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be doing some fine hand appliqué work. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you truly love doing. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
