How much can one quilter get done in two days? Well, it appears quite a bit if she puts her mind to it! I lucked onto two days off in a row this week, had my sanity about me (pretty much lol!)and a mean little list of things to work on or start.
If this sounds like the start of another show & tell, you're right! If you're looking for deep and probing, thought-provoking reading today, then this is not the place. Hey! I just couldn't get all this sewing done AND, at the same time, focus on solving world issues LOL! Boy, would my DS's have a field day with that statement lol!
First up...you know those wonderfully sturdy canvas bags you sometimes get at trade shows with logos on them...well, I had a really nice one, big and roomy, zippered top..the whole nine yards...that had been holding down space in my quilt room for a few years now waiting for transformation. I just hadn't been able to settle on what to do with it but I liked it too much to toss. Then, I came across this block from a pal's stash and I knew instantly where it needed to go.
Then, I had a project that had been cut out and was intended for DSIL last fall and just didn't get done and I am so doing the Happy Dance to have this finished!
Woolensails there has been some inspiring egg making going on. This is my attempt and I don't know why my top turned out so pointy when my pattern had a nice round top lol! It couldn't be user error could it??!! I used some old cheater fabric, two layers of cotton batt and made big stitches with perle cotton thread. Despite it's pointy end, I really like it. In fact, I have an old, very, very worn out quilt that I just might cut into to make some more eggs. Now, don't panic....it's not an heirloom quilt...more like an "air"loom quilt it has so many holes in it. You must run over see the eggs that inspired my attempt...they are gorgeous!
So the end of two days work.....now onto the more serious stuff...what to cook for supper LOL! Happy stitching!
