Good day to you! Thought I would let you know what I am up to.
Quilting: First up is Nancy’s quilt, which I am slowly making headway on. Here are the alternating block designs, including my favorite flower:
The block design and the border both complement each other nicely. This is intentional:
I love to combine freehand work and stencil designs on some of my custom quilts. I can get away with using my favorite flower (yet again) because Nancy has never seen it used on any of her quilts. LOL!
Speaking of Quilting, I thought I would share a picture of my big quilting machine hard at work on Nancy’s quilt:
In case anyone is curious, I use an A1 quilting machine in my studio. Mine is about 5 years old now, and reliable as my Toyota car! I think it holds the record for timing stability. The last time it was timed was in the factory 5 years ago!! Can anyone beat this???
Use the Muse 2 :My freef0rm beading piece is getting close to being done. Then I have to assemble it and take some good quality shots for the challenge by the deadline.
Fiber Art: Next up is a new fiber art and quilting challenge with my good friend, Lori over at Art & Play blog, and others who attend ArtFiberFest each year. I will tell you more just as soon as the challenge is defined….
Misc: I’m in the process of arranging a house cleaning service. I’ve decided to stimulate the economy- and help my back- all at the same time!! Of course this will free up more time to create, so I am all for it!!
I will confess to having always done my own cleaning. I always felt that if I had a cleaner, I would clean before they got to my house, anyway. Anyone else feel that way?? Anyhow, I think it is time to let go of my anal ways and hire someone else to do the cleaning. Life is good…..
Hope your Wednesday is wonderful… I always want to hear what YOU are up to! Post a comment and tell me what you are working on!! – Carla
