I found a decorator item in a recent shopping expedition, it says
“Don’t count the days, make the days count”
and that’s just what I plan on doing. No more countdowns from me. I realized I was forever looking forward to an upcoming event without making the most of the moment I was in.
I’ve made a decision to make my days count!
My selvedge projects so far. The handbag is from Australian Homespun The Go Green Issue No.84 (Vol11.5) by Jodie Carleton of Ric Rac, the renowned Selvedge Queen.
I’d been collecting selvedge's for a couple of years and decided that this was the perfect project to begin using them on. I also realized I had collected some useless bits in my ignorance. There is a pile of bits to be binned, and a container now emptied.
That is progress!
I posted a hint at a bird cage purchase I’d made back in September, and here is how it has turned out.
Fabric birds from Sew Pretty Homestyle a Tilda Book.
Today I did a little free-motion quilting, using the Ultimate Machine Quilting Kit I purchased several months ago.
I thought I was a reasonable machine quilter prior to buying this kit, but as someone who is always looking to improve my technique I thought I’d give it a try, the Aussie dollar being what it is made the decision very easy too.
First impressions…..fabulous! The back is as good as the front, no more loss of tension on the curves, no jumping and multiple stitch lengths, so I’m a happy quilter.
With more practice I’m sure I will be even happier with my improved technique.
Thanks for visiting…..
P.S. did you really think I’d update my blog without a photo of our darling Brooklynn?
