After sitting and sewing boring SLEEVES on quilts all day yesterday, I ended my day
by delivering the CLOUD quilt to it's new owner....
It was a CLOUDY dreary day, but as I reached Central Park
I was SURPRISED to see Daffodils blooming!
It was VERY hard to take a decent Photograph of it all completed... It was so dark in my studio...
They Loved it, and where working on the nursery that this quilt will live...
Sweet dreams wee babe!
SO, Do you wan to know a very important thing I learned yesterday?
This is very important...
When you go on VACATION, DO NOT, I repeat,
DO NOT clean your studio before you leave...
You will completely forget WHERE you put things,
And will have to RE-MESS UP your studio in order to find the one project you
were eagerly working on before you left.
I'm not kidding.
(how do I keep my head screwed on sometimes?)
That stressed me out to no end...
I ran sacked my studio looking for this project that I started ,
and Today, I have my best friend from MN and her graduating Daughter,
coming to visit and my studio
looks like A Tornado went through it...
By the way, I am taking the to Philadelphia on Saturday,
anyone recommend things a teenager might enjoy seeing?
Also any SUPER GREAT RESTAURANTS we could have lunch?
BUT! The good news is, I found my project...
HONEY CHILD DELIGHT.
I can't seem to find anything these days nor keep track of anything..
Is that what happens when you go beyond the age of 40?
LOL. And by that I mean,
LOTS OF LUCK.
Not Lots of laughter...
But your laughing aren't you?
So. Back to where I was...
I found my project, yet, today, I am working on
This sweet piece... Margaret made the piece on the wall,
and I asked her if I could add on to it.
I am loving all the blue and orange together... I hope she does too!
We've had a series of round robins going at our MOD group, and they have been great
fun seeing the ideas churn each time one is presented... I highly recommend trying it.
See what Andrea did to David's quilt....
David Made the bottom part that looks like a city scape at night... Andrea snatched it up,
and get this, her second time paper piecing,
made the TOP arc of color....
Didn't she rock it out? It reminded her of a church window,
so that was her inspiration...
You can see DAVID had to pick his chin up off the floor... ;-)
I know I already posted that pic, but I had to explain.. It was so precious...
So go play!
Find someone to sew and play with!
Have you ever done a round robin,
or added your two cents to some one's quilt?
It makes inspiration sparks fly!
