Are you doing any fun Sunday stitching?? Maybe a tad of slow stitching today to enjoy ?!! Well I surely am :) And I am linking this post to Kathy's Quilts Slow Sunday Stitching post HERE!
Kathy talks about taking time on Sunday to relax and recuperate... I am planning on focusing on this today... and maybe a guilty pleasure Netflix watching too! lol
I woke early this morning as I went to bed a bit early last night... but I have had several VERY productive days and I am excited to share lots of stuff with you today! :)
While waking up today I finished the maple leaf quilting :) This quilts makes me happy! I am looking forward to this coming fall to show it off for sure!
And I have all the thread and the batting I want to use for this quilt... I am very excited to start it but it is a big quilt and requires a LOT of marking! My daughter and I were chatting yesterday over the stencils that came in... she is VERY excited for me to start work on it and she wants to HELP!!! :)
Yep.. you heard right.. I will teach my daughter of 17 1/2 years old how to hand quilt this year!!!! Yay :)
I will teach her on this beauty we found on eBay already a flimsy with a border and all!
I was already excited to start on this quilt... but to know she will carry this through highs and lows as she learns how to be an adult she is proud of and to teach her how to hand quilt on this quilt... makes it even more special to work on for sure!!!
So more on that next Sunday too! lol In the meantime me and my daughter will mark at least the center today and this week... maybe the for little stars around he center wheel/star too! :)
Remember me asking about this tshirt my daughter can't wear but wants to keep ??!!!
Okay... now life is sounding busy in this post.. and I surely didn't plan that.. and there is even more going on I haven't shared yet!!!
Here is 1 of the 2 BOM's I am doing this year...
HERE if interested... she is an excellent teacher and I can't wait to see what all the year holds in the fun BoM!
The other BOM I am planning will start on the 19th... so I will have more to share on that next Sunday :)
HERE on Wednesday with my personalized choices she shows in her shop ad... and they came ready for 30 more quilted items to be branded forever with my name... I usually will add the year to the tag as well with a permanent marker and set with my hot iron :)
Hope you check out her shop! She has excellent customer service and labeling your quilt is so easy when you add this while sewing on the binding :)
Saturday's mail brought not only stencils for Brandi's quilt I told you about but another surprises too! I got this cool pin and my membership card from AQS!!!! (American Quilters Society)
I have more to share but that will include some finishes too... so I will save that all for another day... Here is a pic my son James posted of his "Bubbles" ... we know her as Kaydence but he loves her nickname a LOT!
I love seeing my work in action! Do you like seeing your quilts caught in shots or in real life being enjoyed??
Until my next action filled post remember...
Life is Precious &
