The adorable lady you see here is also named Bonnie! And she and I were part of the same guild in Kernersville, NC when she lived in Greensboro.
It was so great to make her re-acquaintance –not only do we share a love of featherweights, of scrap quilts, and quilting in general, but I feel a connection to those I share my name with. Not just my FIRST name, but my MIDDLE name as well! We are BOTH Bonnie Kay!
We also share a love of hexies – but this gal goes smaller than I am. Look:
Bonnie’s tiny hexie in progress!
Hers next to mine!
These are the rosettes I started on the plane this past trip ---warm chocolate brows with some shades of cinnamon thrown in…3/4” per side hexies….mine look like Godzilla next to hers! Isn’t it fun to see how different things look just by changing the scale?
Take a look at the variety of quilt beginnings that happened in class:
Is your holiday weekend still in full swing? Not sure what the plans are here today – still afraid to venture out into the “real” world! Now that I can get back into the studio I’ve got a quilt that needs a binding applied – and I can see myself later this evening with my feet up in the recliner sewing that binding down!
I’ve gone as far as I can in here for right now --- that is until I can get down to IKEA and pick up a couple heavier duty book cases for either side of the fireplace. All the books are in boxes on the “other” side of the basement for right now. IKEA on the weekend? NOT HAPPENING! Might be a plan for Wednesday, though!
Enjoy your Saturday everyone!
