It may be cold cold cold out, but blue sky and sunshine prevail!
Every time I come up here I am once again reminded why I love it so much, and how this small corner of the Blue Ridge Mountains fills my soul.
I feel rejuvenated with the simple routine of waking up, stepping out onto the front porch and greeting the morning with a deep inhale and a smile.
I love this place!
And I am so excited to be sharing my love of this place with two dear friends who will be here ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!
There is lots to do to prepare. I want everything to be just right!
ALL of the doors are now in!
This is the lower level, and instead of bringing machines in the cabin, and down the spiral stairs to the basement sewing area, everything was brought around to these doors….my first chance to see them IN!
I brought my accuquilt studio!
It’s on a 6 ft folding table that I put up on risers…slid it against the window. On risers the table is tall enough slide right over the treadle machine cabinet. I plan on having a cutting and kitting up weekend while here, so this gizmo will be busy busy busy. I brought loads of scraps and fat quarters to process down – along with my 1.5” 2”, and 2.5” strip dies. My strip bins are really low on variety, so it is time to add a bunch more!
How are we going to set this space up?
I think this will do it!
I will be on the 2 tone 301 short bed, Randy will have the mocha 301 long bed, and Lori will be at the Bernina Activa 145! Loads of space! I’m also setting up a second cutting area with a 4 foot folding table raised up to cutting height.
What’s going on here?
Four Patches from the 1.5” scrap squares box!
It’s almost time for the 2015 APQ Quilt Along!
This year the theme is 4 patches! Since 4 patches are my favorite unit of all time, of course I’m happy to join in! Be watching for the April 2015 issue for more details on how to participate:
Have a terrific weekend, everyone!
