Not necessarily fabric bits and pieces, but little bits of quilting news, events, and mishaps.
I'm getting ready to head off to the Sacred Threads Quilt Exhibit this Friday and I thought I'd make a new purse. In fact, I decided to create my own pattern for a smaller purse based on a large bag I designed last year. All was going well and then..... I fused my interfacing to my press cloth.
I swear I checked to make sure it wasn't shiny side up!
I am really looking forward to the Sacred Threads Exhibit! Not only will I see my quilt on display (The first quilt I've ever entered into a show or exhibit.), but it's going to be a nice trip with a fun and fabulous friend. We leave Friday, and come back Sunday. Without kids!
I love my kids, but time away from them is rare and I find when I go away, I come back refreshed and actually missing them. And I hope to spend some time chatting with other quilters and artists and learning from them! Maybe I'll even meet a reader of my blog?
Superior Threads makes some beautiful threads and their site has some fabulous videos to educate us!
Near the end of last year, I asked 3 fabulous ladies to be my "advisers" to help mentor me and keep me on track with my own self-appointed goals and deadlines. And I am the one who has consistently been late with my reporting to them. Maybe I need the local one to give me a swift kick in the rear!
The marvelous and multi-talented Leslie at Marveles Art Studio has been doing some seriously gorgeous quilting lately! Go take a look at some seriously gorgeous feathering and other free motion quilting designs.
