Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a very good productive day. My day has been full of this and that.
Most of you will already know that I have challenged myself to complete as many UFOs this year as I can. That doesn’t mean that I won’t start any new projects, it just means that I aim to finish as many ongoing projects as I can. I wanted to prep a new project this past weekend but I just didn’t have the time or energy to get started. However, I did add the binding to 5 different freemotion quilting samplers which I quilted last year. The fabrics used for these samplers was dyed by my Sarah and I think all the markings, the light and dark marbling effect, along with my simple freemotion quilting makes these pieces look so interesting. My goal was to get them all bound and ready to use. They are all suitably sized to use as table runners or centres. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my binding session. And now I have five lovely table runners which I have put away for a rainy day. Have you been working on UFOs lately? Do you even have UFOs???
The last couple of weeks have been fraught with spring cleaning in my little world. Sorting and tidying has taken over my life. I have been bagging and tagging things to be distributed amongst the charities. And of course the stuff that’s broken or has not been used due to its’ age must go to the tip and eventually into landfill. My house is beginning to look so different without all the clutter. I’ve got a long way to go yet but I feel that every new day brings a chance to start afresh.
It’s been a really good day in happy longarm quilter land. We had some lovely sunshine this morning. Unfortunately, it disappeared around lunch time. I enjoyed working on blue hexagons. And I even got to step out to run an errand while getting some fresh spring air. I really enjoy productive days and the sense of accomplishment I have at the end of it.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be hand piecing some double wedding ring components. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
