Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you’re wearing green today!
My design wall looks quite a bit like it did last week:
Spring Bouquet is coming along. The missing block is the one on my sewing machine that I’m working on now. I hope to finish stitching down the fused applique today on that block. Then I’ll just have 3 blocks left, with two weeks to go in the month. I think I can get it done. I think I can, I think I can…
I’m hoping this one is done and something else is on my wall by next Monday. I would also like to get these nine blocks sewn together, then I’ll just have to work on the borders. I don’t think I’ll get much more done in the sewing room this week. I hope to finally get the garden going this week, so I’ll be busy with that Tuesday and Wednesday.
I also plan on going to Quilt Fest in Pigeon Forge on Friday (I think!), so nothing will get accomplished then…other than maybe some shopping! I also want to check out long arm quilting machines while I’m there. I’m hoping my husband will come along with me to check them out with me. I want him to see how much nicer the space of a long arm (even a small one without a frame) will be for me to quilt on, rather than the 7 inch space I have on my sewing machine. It’s tough to shove a quilt into those 7 inches! We’ve been talking about this and investigating this for a year or so, and with our daughter out of college now, it just might be time to get serious about it!
Have a wonderful week and I hope spring gets here soon!
