I was one of lucky winners in the Le Petite parade for February’s project of “Sweet Spot.” I won a Layer Cake of my choice from the Fat Quarter Shop! I was so excited and it took me a while to pick, but I finally chose the new fabric line from 3 Sisters called Grace. It just arrived!
It is GORGEOUS!! It’s their Christmas line, but it doesn’t scream Christmas. The colors are rich and yummy. Creams, greens, reds and deep browns. Love it!! A big thank you to the Fat Quarter Shop!!
I am extremely happy to report that my refrigerator was delivered today!!! WOO-HOO!! And speaking of gorgeous…
It’s a beauty! Looks better than I imagined it would.
It’s such an upgrade from what we had. Wow. It’s so nice and pristine. I don’t want to put anything in it!! 🙂 Actually, I have very little to put in it anyways. I desperately need to go grocery shopping. With our little fridge in the garage jam packed with condiments I never knew we had so many and the girls not being home, I have put off going grocery shopping. I will definitely need to go because the girls are coming home tonight. I can’t wait to see their little faces light up when they see the new fridge!
I have been very busy working on my 30s quilt. It’s taking me longer than expected because I’ve hit a few bumps in the road. I know it’s all about the learning process of being a newbie longarmer. All my bumps have been in the quilting designs I wanted to do, not the quilting itself. The quilting is gorgeous, so that’s a good thing. First, I wanted to curl feathers in the border. Well, the problem is you can’t even see their beauty with the busy border fabric, nor could I really see to quilt them. I tried everything to make them work. I even tried several different threads, but eventually I had to concede that a simpler design was the way to go. This translated to a lot of frogging. Also, my backing fabric wasn’t very conducive to heavy custom quilting either. It’s too busy as well. I love that I’m learning all this NOW because it will help me when working with clients on choosing the best quilting for their quilts.
I took off the word verification setting when leaving comments. I wanted to make it easier and more enjoyable for readers to leave comments. We’ll see how it goes. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
