How nice to have a Sunday as a day off – and be away from home to have it!
Now, don’t get me wrong – I love to be home. I need to be home. But I also know that if I were home, that NO SEWING would be happening.
I’d be cleaning the house – or at least the basement studio which really looks like hoarders have moved in ---
It seems I arrive home with packages from my trips and they land on every horizontal surface until I can’t see the top of this table, or that dresser, or heaven forbid try to access my accuquilt studio ---BURIED!
And Shannon was kind enough to invite me over to the classroom at her house where she teaches her fiber art classes, and we set up and sewed together for the afternoon.
Can you see by this picture that I have moved on to the yellow kites for the String-Spider-Web-a-thon?
I sewed and sewed while Shannon was working on a commission piece for someone else….and we talked and talked and laughed and talked some more.
Block quarters got trimmed up!
And when I got back to my room I laid them out on the bed!
This project is evolving as I am working on it, but I’m sure having fun with the different colored centers.
I also want to introduce you to Miss Emery Elizabeth:
Little cutie, 3 days old!
She is so alert and so inquisitive! I just wonder what she is thinking of this big and brand new world she has entered into--
There is Mexican on the agenda for dinner, and who knows what this evening holds. Believe it or not, I’m kind of all-sewed-out right now. Maybe a movie and some simple relaxing.
We have a busy day tomorrow, a full Crumbs Crumbs Crumbs workshop with the Cabin Branch Quilters, followed by my presentation at their monthly meeting tomorrow night…Tuesday I move on to Manassas!
Have a great Sunday evening, everyone!
