Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a super day. My day was spent doing this and that. I kicked off the day by delivering the three quilts I challenged myself to longarm quilted over the weekend for Quilts for Comfort. It’s a great feeling knowing that I played a small part in bringing three different young people a bit of comfort when they can really use it.
On my way home I popped into Ikea to purchase a couple of clear plastic storage bins. I have learned the hard way that it’s much better to pack and store stuff in clear bins than in cardboard boxes or opaque plastic bins simply because it makes it easier to find things when you’re looking for something. I seem to spend a lot of time searching for stuff so if I can make it simpler all the better.
The last task of the day was to prepare for the next meeting of the Burnopfield Belles. I spent a couple of hours planning our next lesson plan. We will be trying freemotion machine quilting. I know this technique can be daunting for some, so I’m hoping to put the Belles on the road to success. We have been learning how to use the quilt as you go method of making quilts so freemotion quilting will come in very handy. The Burnopfield Belles meet on the last Wednesday of the month and also on other Wednesdays in between at the Burnopfield Community Centre. Their main goal is to help make quilts for Quilts for Comfort all the while learning something new and making quilts as a group. And best of all we have a good time while doing it. It’s a great way to meet new like-minded people while doing something useful.
So far today, I haven’t done any sewing but I plan on putting that right this evening by working on my Quilts on the Grow blocks. Hand piecing is always the best part of my day. So it’s not a bad thing to save it for last.
So for this evening, this very happy and super ambitious longarm quilter will be doing some EPP. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you really enjoy doing. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
