Well hello followers! This post brings good health. Yes that’s right. I am feeling more normal, but still have a ways to go. In the recent past my hobby suffered much. All my energy had to be focused on bare minimums of bathing, working, and cooking, with much sighs and saying to myself….I think I can.
The last two weekends I have managed three jelly roll race quilts, and during my work week, I pulled off one more baby quilt top. Due to the grandmother of the recipient of this quilt reading this blog, I will show pictures after I have gifted.
Last Thursday, I took the day off and went to my local longarmer. I do not usually go this route, but I have good momentum and don’t want Fmq to slow me down. I took a jelly roll quilt and my velvet squares quilt top to be sandwiched and quilted. Monday I got a call that she had already finished. Usually I have a three week wait.
So tonight I am binding the jelly roll race and am halfway done hand stitching. Tomorrow I plan to sandwich the secret quilt and start quilting on it. I am also going to start batting shopping as my roll may have enough to finish a few more. I always wait until it is 50 percent off.
My list of whips:
I have not not worked much on my leader ender. The postage sheet quilt I am giving an interfacing demonstration next week to our local charity sewing group and using it as part of the demonstration.. I think I am going to look into wool for the batting. Work is piling up at my machine and it feels so good!
