Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine went by so fast! I feel like it was just Friday! Anyone else feel like that? I delivered Melissa’s quilt that I posted Friday. She LOVED it!! Much to my happiness and relief. Honestly, I love that quilt too. 🙂 The thing is even before I have one quilt finished, I’m thinking about the next quilt I’m going to quilt. Usually I have it out for inspiration. To be honest, I’m usually thinking about the next three quilts I’ll be quilting! My mind is always thinking about quilt designs. Sometimes when I’m walking Sarge, I’ll start drawing quilting designs in the air with my finger. Yes, I know, I have a slight problem. 🙂 Whenever I finish a quilt, I usually clean up the studio. A must because I accumulate sooooo much thread on the floor. I have a bit of an Eleanor Burns bad habit of just tossing threads on the floor as I’m quilting. Next, I usually practice a bit between quilt tops. Some times it’s just doodles and some times I’m trying out my next quilt pattern I will be quilting.
These are some of my doodles. Practicing like this gives me a chance to try some new threads and just relax and play a little. Of course, I always throw some feathers into my practice time. These doodles I tried with stitch regulator off to see how it would look. Not bad.
I also finally sewed the binding on Brochante. Love that Schnibbles!
I picked up a couple of things at my friend Daphne’s shop too.
Pretty little patriotic centerpiece to go the rest of my patriotic decor. And…
A new Wood Wick candle. These are the best candles. Have you ever tried one? My friend Missy got me hooked a few years ago when she gave me one. They have a wonderful fragrance and the wick crackles like a fireplace when it burns because it’s made out of wood. Very cool.
Well, it seems I’ve turned Sarge into a quilter too.
He was helping me cut out June’s Le Petite quilt. 🙂
