In some ways, I feel as if I'm trying to catch up. When I started quilting in 2005, I quickly became addicted and found my creative outlet. The more 'balls in the air' the better!
Do you remember my 'Cool Waters' Quilt Top? I wasn't sure how I was going to quilt it and then I got an idea! Light bulb moments are great! I just finished sewing the binding on last night. It will hit the washing machine today and I share the finished piece in a couple days. I'm pleased with it. I'm anxious to use the rest of the Denyse Schmidt charm squares for another project soon.
I wanted to recreate this quilt Black + White = Illusion because I love it and thought...why not?!! I pulled out the good old black and white fabric and thought I could just get to it from my notes. Not the case! I seriously tried to take decent notes for the first one. I thought I did. I couldn't figure out what the heck I was talking about! I ended up making a couple test blocks (again), and this time...certainly I took better notes!
Please tell me I am not the only one who writes cryptic confusing notes?! I could say I learned my lesson, but I'm sure I have not!
This quilt top will be ready whenever I am!
Briar Rose, Briar Rose! You are a delightful, gorgeous stack! Believe it or not I have decided to part with this stack of fat quarters. I'm still a bit shocked myself and must admit...a little saddened!
The first step in recovery is letting go...and let go I shall!
These will be going to a friend in my Guild. I'm sure she will cherish them as I have, and I hope she will use them as I have not! I made one quilt with them and I still have some decent sized pieces left, all is not lost! In a way, it feels really good! Who knows, this could be a new beginning!
And lastly, after painting my toe nails with the skill of a two-year-old, I took a moment to play! I don't usually paint my finger nails and, I'm not sure one nail out or ten counts, but I painted 'A' nail!
It still looks like a two-year-old did it, but hell...it was fun! Cross hatch...take that!! So, my artistic skill do not cross over to nail painting!
