Hi all, writting this post on Wednesday night as Friday I will still be out of town. Heading to Edmonton with my Sis and the boys for a night plus seeing an ol' friend of my sisters and spending the night at my Mum's, what fun!
Update on the studio: the carpet was installed Friday and so since then it's been folding, sorting, purging, sorting, folding and more purging. Here's a bit of a clip to keep you all abreast.
Thanks to Allison Rosen and her AR way of folding fabric, I've followed suite to ensure that I can get the best space for all of this. I measured my drawer and divided it by 6.5". I used a 6.5" square ruler, and wrapped the fabric around this and folded in the exact same manor (removing the ruler as you go)
Then I got 4 even rows of fabrics, all nice and neat I won't want to use them now :)
Funny story, my DH says to me "Hey hun, is all of this your fabric?" Me: "Yes it is, why" DH: I didn't realize how much you had? Me: "Oh really?" Isn't that a riot? I don't even have that much of a stash, yet ;)
Quilt til you Wilt last weekend proved to be another awesome day, with quite a few of us gathering together we sewed, we laughed, great ol' time as usual.
Mum and I worked on getting our Freebie 15 blocks all caught up, I got these three paper pieced leaves done and the large main block almost finished. I'm quite happy with the way these turned out.
We purchased 4 Billy bookcases from Ikea and set them up today, My sweetie pie has been so great helping me get setup and sorted...thanks Babe!
This was at about 2pm, since then I've unloaded so many boxes, all of my silks and notions, etc, it's been so fun, too bad you gals weren't here to help me out ;)
I will be open next week for business by appointment only please call before you come by...
I'm also so pleased to announce that I'm the Guest Honeypot over at Snickerdoodle Dreams, thanks Darlene for having me on your site, it was really fun to do :) For those of you who create something with the drawing I included and email (email@example.com) me a pic of your project, I'll put your name in for a great prize, think something along the lines of silks.
Last but not least, here's Tig (aka Quilt Inspector) checking out the fabrics all nicely folded in a plethora of colours..."hmmm what should I pick next?"
I'm also so pleased to announce that the Lakeside Quilters here in Chestermere have voted me in to be their Vice President, thank you so much ladies and I hope I make you all proud!!
BOM Update: I've order the gorgeous silk flosses for A Kittens Tale, which I hope will commence middle of March, anyone else like to sign up? I'll be ordering the patterns next week. The Journey of a Quilter's 2nd block has just been sent out, 1st prize was drawn, 6000 yard beige cotton thread cone and 20g tin of Quilters Tea, congratulations Susanne!!
Until next time, have a happy and creative day
