Where there is a Scrappy Quilty Will --
There is a Scrappy Quilty WAY!
Take a look at what Sandra sent me today ---
I’m almost jealous for her laying around and recuperating time –
She is sewing up a storm even while laying on the couch!
Along with her photos she sent in the following story:
Hey Bonnie!!!Just wanted to drop a line and let you know that I have joined your tumbler challenge.
I wrote a blog post on it today...
I have had surgery and I am stuck on my couch for the next 3 months. So, I cut out over 1000 tumblers before I went into surgery, got a very small light weight sewing machine...and having been sewing away on my lap while I am on my couch!!! LOL!!
Can't keep a quilter from quilting!!!
Looking forward to tonights Quilt -Cam. I've never joined it live before. Can't wait.
Thanks for your generous heart and sharing with all us quilty people...
xoxoxoxHopefully Sandra is still awake and not passed out under pain meds while we do Quilt-Cam tonight! She’s been through a lot. It would be so easy to get discouraged, to be miserable –but as quilters we always tend to look at the bright and scrappy side and find ways to make the best use of our time.
Even when things are not fun – as recuperating from surgery would be, working with our hands, and playing with pretty fabrics and seeing something grow and evolve from our efforts can lift our spirits immeasurably, don’t you agree?
As for me…I’m string piecing!
This is what’s going on here!
I wrote in this morning’s post a bit about this project and decisions that were made to get me to this point.
I’m eager to treadle, it’s been too long since I have been able to spend time with it, so I am on the Singer 227M tonight, sewing strings through phone book foundation paper and having a ball.
This is my fancy set up!
In order to do Quilt-Cam from the treadle machine, I had to set up the extra ironing board to get the lap top at a good angle…..oh yes, we are so professional here!
Ready to sew? I am!
