*Pushes… giant … elephant … out an average size door…. dusts hands off*
|I made a lot of quilts since November.|
Whew! I did it! I turned in everything for my book deadline. (And everything arrived safely! Praise the Lord!) I’m so excited to share my book and all the quilts with you next year. But for now, I feel like I need the entire year to recover!
These past few weeks I’ve spent some time resting, playing and getting things back in order. My sewing room, which is our dining room, was, as you can imagine, pretty out of control. So I spent some time tidying. I found a great use for my marketing totes… scrap holders! This bag is full of selvedges (time to make another selvedge quilt!).
After making nothing but quilts straight for 3 months I spent some time drawing. I’d love to get back to this drawing of Peonies (my favorite!) with some gouache paints but the problem of not enough time still remains, well, a problem. I need more time!
My oldest daughter turned 8 recently and
I she got a new sewing machine. I She loves it!
And now for the playing! I made some scrappy Chicopee binding for Mr. Jones. Who is finally bound and waiting to be photographed.
Then I spent some time playing with some purple feathers. This pattern is from Anna Maria Horner’s Feather Bed quilt pattern.
