I've been having such fun! My house looks like a mess and we have been eating some strange meals, but who cares? Sometimes it's better to feed the soul and creativity within! (At least that's what I tell my hubby! And then he just looks at me funny, shakes his head and walks away with his car keys, probably on his way to some fast food joint. lol) Seriously, I sometimes just "get in the zone" and can hardly pull myself away. For the person who works in a studio that wouldn't be bad, I suppose, but remember, I sew on our kitchen table, cut fabric on the kitchen island, and set up the ironing board in the space between. Often, I just push the sewing machine to the side when we eat.......it's at hubby's spot, so what do I care? I used to love it when he worked and traveled for business. I'd even keep the mess around while I was working. Now, I basically have to clean up my schnibbles everyday.
I finished the Charley Harper quilt. It turned out a bit narrower than I wanted at 11 1/2 inches, but that's okay. I had a ball making it and I LOVE the way it turned out:
Did you notice? I even got to use some buttons on it! Wow! I love buttons! The only thing I wasn't crazy about was burying those threads from all that straight line quilting. Ugh! Usually, I cut them off but decided to do it the right way for a change. Now I know why I cut them off! lol I don't have patience for that kind of thing! Besides, it's a wall hanging, who's going to see?
Yesterday I made two more of this:
I loved that mug rug and I needed a few little gifts. The new ones didn't turn out exactly the same, but that's what fun. One of a kind is the best kind of gift anyway! I have the binding and buttons on one of them yet to finish and then off to the post office and the quilt shop. I have a new project....and I have to go shopping! Awwww.......!!! Hope you're having fun too!
