Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a fab day. As usual have I have kept but I didn’t do anything of any great consequence. I spent the day tying up loose ends. I caught up on some chores from my To-Do List. Now I can have a good play.
So let’s get caught up on what I have been working on. First I can show you four more Quilts on the Grow block which I pieced over the last couple of days …..
These blocks need to be secured onto the background and then quilted lightly. I’m a little over halfway to making the 52 blocks needed to complete this project. I’m tickled pink that I managed to carry on working on this project. And I’m pretty much on track time scale wise. I should be making four blocks a month, so as it’s June now I should have 24 blocks done but I have 29 blocks done which means I’m one month ahead!!! This Quilt as You Go method is a great way of working because once all the blocks are done the quilt is done too.
Something that was on my To-Do List for today was to prepare for my Burnopfield Belles sewing meeting tomorrow. I’ll be guiding the Belles thru the daunting technique of Foundation Paper Piecing. This is a technique which I learned many years. And to me it’s a breeze but for some it’s a difficult technique to learn. So I made copies of the foundation papers and prepped some fabric in readiness to show them how it all works. Seeing is believing. I am a visual person and I feel that there’s nothing like a good demo as well as a written description to which you can refer to just to remind you how it works. I’m looking forward to catching up with the Belles tomorrow. Just in case you didn’t know the Burnopfield Belles are a group of ladies who come together monthly who are interested in helping Quilts for Comfort.
Today is Tuesday, the second day of the work week. I’m caught up on everything on my To-Do List for the moment. I’m grateful to have had a chance to spend some time in my sewing room preparing for tomorrow’s meeting with the Burnopfield Belles. I’m grateful for the sun that graced us this morning. I’m grateful for the fact that I’m in reasonably good health at the moment. Most of all I’m grateful for my loving family and friends. Without their encouragement I wouldn’t be the person I am today. What are you grateful for today?
It’s been a really good day in my little world. I have accomplished more than I expected to accomplish in one day. Some days things just run smoothly when other days nothing works as you would like it to. It would be nice if every day was like that.
So for this evening, this very happy and ambitious longarm quilter will be working on prepping a few more blocks for my Quilts on the Grow project. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
