Couple of things to share tonite, firstly Beth sent me this gorgeous pincushion for the Stitchery Swap:
Australian Quarantine had it for quite some time and felt the need to pull some of it apart (Beth i really hope i put it back together the way u intended it to be).......i just love it, the scent is just divine. This was one of her first stitcheries and her stitches r just perfect and i just adore birds and this is such a welcome site when i enter my studio.........thank u, thank u soooooooo much i will always treasure this (my first swap item ever!!!)
I decided to be proactive this weekend and sash my SBS blocks (my hat off to Anne Ida who managed to sash the whole quilt in just a few days!!!):
I had a few problems but this quilt "to me" is a learning quilt......my skills have grown and i think this quilt will reflect that. I am always trying to push myself to develop my quilting and this is the one to do that......so yes maybe i could "redo" a few blocks to make them perfect or i could let them stay to remind me of how far i have come!!!! Either way, im loving it so far, enough to make me "whip" up more blocks tonite for the next row lol.
My first drawing class is tomorrow nite......im all ready as far as the pencils and art book etc etc but im really nervous!!! Im sure it wont be as disastrous as im imagining and hey maybe ill relax enough to actually "learn" something lol Ive deluded myself into thinking ill lose 2 hrs sewing time........i really clutch at straws for excuses lol
Take care and Happy stitching
