Well, I knew it couldn't last! (Although I was wishing!) Temps this morning are 37 degrees. Yes, that is after our string of high 70s and 80s for the last two weeks. In actuality though, it's probably a good thing because yesterday I got out the sewing machine again after a 6 day break. Hey......I was almost ready to take a holiday and pack away the fabric forever! I had some ideas of things to make, but NO (like ZERO) ambition!! All I was doing was playing and reading blogs on the computer. (And looking for puppies!!! lol) BUT.............I am back in business!! We'll see for how long!
I MUST show you something wonderful. Do you remember the FLiQ swap and when I made this for my partner:
Well, I received the one from my partner and it was the BEST quilt in the whole swap!! I adored it from the first picture of it and watched it progress in the beauty it became........in fact, I think the whole group wanted this one:
The design and quilting are amazing! The colors are so vivid and bright and I just adore this beauty!! What a talented artist Tami (lemontreetales) is! I loved her quilts from DQS in the past and hoped that some day I would be lucky enough to get her as a partner. Just look at this gorgeous label too:
I'd be embarrassed to show her the goofy writing I do with one of those Micron pens as a label on the back of the stuff I do. Eikes! Good thing I didn't have to send to her, huh?
Thank you so much, Tami!! I am delighted and jumping for joy with your creation!! I will always cherish it and soon it will be on my wall along with my other favorites!
So...........that's it for today, my friends! I am working, but slowly. Just as soon as groups are established for the Bitty Block Committees April swap, I can show you mine. Until then, I will continue since I signed up for another 12 of those cute 3.5 inch blocks yesterday. Call me crazy! BUT, maybe that's what it took to get the machine out again, who knows???
