It is really satisfying and exciting that I can share lots of lovely quilts, bags and various projects from the wonderful array of ladies that choose to call Precious Time their quilting home. But tonight this post is all about me…….well actually it’s all about the quilts that I have been working on.
In an attempt to keep on track with my Cold Wind I worked on placing the applique pieces for block 3 today and am very happy with the overall look of the block – now all that’s left is to stitch it – that’s the easy part. It took me longer than anticipated to audition my flowers and leaves for the block, there were a few changes and then ta dah……..
I have been taking a little break from my Auntie Green after finishing stitching the cable down (little happy dance) and so have spent my evenings working on my next block of Lollipop Trees – only 14 more to go - it sounded so much better when it was just a number dancing around in my head. Lollipop Trees may take me longer than expected to finish but with all but 2 blocks “roxanned” down I have a wonderful sense of achievement even though I have a long way to go. It is so nice to fan through the blocks today looking for the one that softly says – choose me – stitch me - I look gorgeous. So into my sewing box to wait it’s turn.
With Sue visiting this weekend I will be working on my Pickle Dish quilt. It hasn’t been touched since she was here in September when the urge to start another quilt was too great – you know that urge – beautiful quilt – new fabrics to choose and cut – a new technique to learn – fingers itch to start – all the symptoms of a serial quilter or maybe that should be serial starter. Either way it fills my heart with happiness and at the end of the day that’s all that matters – it’s not about how many quilts I don’t finish but the joy I receive from all the quilts I start.
Have a wonderful weekend..........lisa
