Exciting times around here - the darling daughter returned, driving through the night, stealthy, fooling all. And she is here, she is home. A chip off the old block - packing her car beyond its limits, motoring from south Florida - a 24 hour journey accomplished in one shot. Truthfully, she is braver than anyone I know. Happy beyond expression.
So there has been baking and consuming - fresh spinach with artichoke hearts ... a big hit!
And sewing, of course -
It's beginning to feel a bit like Christmas.
There are holiday gnomes in the sewing room! I want to place them in everything that I am creating! A visit to the FatQuarter site is in order as I have no green or aqua gnomes. I hope that they still have some in stock because, as usual, I was late to this party and unaware of Monica's wonderful designs until just recently. Mine is an imperfect world - if I spent the time navigating quilting blogs that I'd like to, there would be precious little time left for quilting! It's the dread Day Job. It spoils everything!
A special gift for a special couple - almost ready to send.
I wanted to finish this today as we have brilliant sunshine and breeze enough to dry this, but my finger aches from too many hours of stitching binding. I have to take a break. Also - I need to find a thimble that I can wear and any suggestions would be gratefully accepted. The solid sterling one that I adore makes me fumble and feel clumsy, and so out of control. The suede always surprises me with a dreadful jab when the black clover quilting needle finds its way though! And the plastic is just not my cup of tea! But this is -
I loved making this tiny quilt!
