Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a fab day. Mine has been full of this and that. I had a very important meeting first thing this morning but after that Sarah and I disposed of a whole lot of things that have been deemed surplus to requirement. So we visited our favourite place in all the world, the tip. And after that we went onto a much more interesting place and purchased milk and a few essentials. We’ve got the fixins for a couple of healthy tasty meals now. Eating healthy makes me feel good. Not to mention that healthy eating has helped me lose little weight over the last couple of weeks which has made me feel even better.
Once the chores were done, I decided I needed a sewing fix of a different kind. I have been working on my Sweethearts Dozen nonstop for a couple of weeks and I thought I needed a little change. I didn’t want to start a new project so I stuck my hand into a pile of UFOs and dragged out a Freemotion Quilting sample which I stitched out quite some time ago. It’s not super pretty but it will be useful. So my little sewing project for this afternoon was turning one sample into two separate smallish table toppers. I rotary cut the sample in two separate pieces, squared them off and added some binding. Here’s a little peek …..
Now this may not seem very exciting but that FMQ sample has been sitting in the pile for some time and I just couldn’t work up the courage to dispose of it because the stitching is pretty good. The larger table topper will go under my printer to absorb some of the noise and vibration. So it doesn’t matter if it isn’t super pretty because it will be covered up. I haven’t decided what to do with the little table topper yet.
It’s been a good day in my little world. The sun decided to come out to shine brightly late afternoon, and very welcome it was too. And the best part of the day was getting a sewing fix of a different kind. My Sweethearts Dozen is coming along nicely. I need to finish the stitchery work on one last block and then I can proceed to the next step. It’s looking good.
So for this evening, this very happy and super ambitious longarm quilter will be doing some stitchery work. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
