I was able to get this new design all stitched up this past weekend! Now I have to decide on how to quilt it? I really do not have time to hand quilt it, but I really want to! I'm stumped - so if you have suggestions on what quilting designs or motifs I should do or ask a longarm quilter to do - leave a comment!
Yesterday I spent the day drawing and designing new projects! Ah yes - pure bliss. And so far today - it's looking like I'm going to spend the day doing much of the same as yesterday. When inspiration strikes - take advantage of it - that's my motto!
So after a full day of drawing and doodling, this is how my sewing room looks this morning when I walked into it! (be warned - it's starting to look like a tornado hit it!)
The pile of large notepads, Lite Steam A Seam 2 scraps and graph paper on my sewing table.
This is my cutting table with my light box (new design on top that I finished up yesterday evening!) and a bunch of tools laying nearby. Of course my phone is handy and as always - a can of Diet Coke is within reach!
My pressing table holds all of yesterdays drawings (13 completed!) and to the right is all of my cardboard, vinyl and plastic templates I created!
This smaller cutting counter holds all my garbage - big stack of rejects and scraps of discarded paper!
And I'm sure the mess will get even worse today! But who cares - I'm having fun!
The baby shower went off perfectly this past Sunday. Here is the soon to be Mommy holding her quilt that I made for her. This baby shower was so much fun to help with, but boy was I tired when I got home Sunday evening! Geez - babies are a lot of work!
Here's the soon to be Mommy and Daddy - are they not cute!
And today I leave you with this picture. I posted it on FaceBook yesterday after laughing hysterically when I first saw it. Remember - laughter is the best medicine!
