Borrowing this idea from my friend Heather at 365 days of awesome …
1. I’ve been quiet lately because I’ve been painting and moving into my new office/studio space. It’s quite small, so it’s taking a lot of planning and organization but I’m nearly there. During this move, I took the opportunity to weed through all my stuff and decided to sell three large storage totes’ worth of fabric. None of it is quilting fabric, and most of it I purchased more than 10 years ago, so I doubt I’ll miss it. I also found some fabric that made me think I really need to make myself some skirts for fall (suede like fabric) and buy some boots.
2. I was very nearly ready to back the baby quilt I’m working on when I started the studio space, all the way to the point of having the sandwich pinned together. It just didn’t feel right to me, though – I’m not sure if it’s because of the trouble I had with the back, and the subsequent changes (more on that in a later post) or what, but I didn’t like it. Then I remembered some fabric I have in my stash and thought, that’s what I’ll use! So once I get the studio in shape, I’ll take it all apart and repin it. Then I just need to quilt it, bind it and then I’ll post it, along with the story that goes with it (there is definitely a story!).
3. Am I the only one who’s more than ready for fall? I mean really, this heat is so oppressive! I keep dreaming of cooler days, cute fall clothing, and boots! (Note to self: BUY BOOTS this year!) I am already working on a Halloween quilt, and looking at fabric for a fall quilt … It’s not likely I will get both done this year with everything else, but … yeah. I can at least buy the fabric while it’s available and make it for NEXT year, right?
Until next time,
