It’s been a pretty slow week around my sewing studio. Last week I found out that my job is being phased out. That got me pretty down, so I didn’t get much sewing done.
I did do a little organizing, but haven’t gotten far enough to uncover the bike path quilt back that’s still MIA, ugh. I got all my solids together in one box, which is really awesome, now I don’t have to go digging for them all the time!
The one project I actually did work on is a new one. So much for getting my list down…This one is a birthday present for my friend April’s daughter who will have her 16th birthday this month. April isn’t able to give her a gift herself, so I offered to make a quilt as April’s birthday present to her. I do (try to) sell quilts in my etsy shop, but I always find myself much more motivated to work on gift quilts. I’m pretty sure the ability to give someone the gift of a quilt- filled with your time and talents- is the very best part of quilting.
The rest of the list is just sitting where is was last week:
- Bike Path Quilt
- Blue String Quilt- in the floor frame
- Baby Blue String Quilt- in the travel frame
- Green String Quilt- waiting for a frame
- Black String Quilt- waiting on a frame
- Scrap Quilt
- Baby Bears Quilt
- Rainbow bright String Quilt
- Spirograph Napkins
- Stacks of pillow tops
- Stacks of embroidered blocks
- Little Birdie Embroidery Blocks
Until next time, Jill
