Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a great day. I stepped away from my sewing room today. A change of pace is good for the soul. I kicked off my day by running some errands and proceeded to spend the rest of the day flitting around doing this and that. I did a few household chores including refolding and stacking a few of my quilts on a purpose built shelf. Some of my quilts are hidden away in the loft but quite a lot of them are spread around the house. I have some hanging on the walls, some are on beds and some are folded, stacked and displayed for me to enjoy every day while I’m flitting around doing this or that around the house.
I make quilts because I enjoy making quilts. Nobody needs to have as many quilts as I have. I simply love choosing fabric, cutting it up and sewing it back together. I love making scrappy quilts more than I do formal quilts. And I really enjoy formulating new designs and planning the execution of a new project. I haven’t worked on a full size quilt project in quite some time now. Over the last few weeks I’ve been thinking about working on smaller projects for which I will use mixed media including some freemotion quilting. Freemotion quilting is one of my favourite hobbies. And so I’m hoping to do more freemotion quilting using different grades and colours of thread producing interesting designs. I have been collecting all kinds of different threads and needles for a while and hopefully I will make a dent in my thread stash while creating something interesting and possibly even lovely. I’m looking forward to the challenge. Now if I can find a little time and energy I will start playing to my heart’s content.
It’s been a lovely day in my quiet little world. The postman delivered four new magazines this morning which I will peruse over the weekend. I did a little doodling in preparation for a bit of freemotion quilting. And the sun was shining making everything even better. There was even a bit of warmth in the sun this afternoon.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be doing some fine hand appliqué. I’m hoping to be able to finish this current appliqué work this weekend. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something that truly makes you happy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
