On our way we stopped at the river to snap a few pictures of the shanties. Last year I didn’t get any. I enjoy sketching them although they are less colourful this year and more spread out.
It’s starting to pick up out there.
I put on some nice music and finished most of the quilting on my pod piece and also pieced a binding.
Once I finish writing this, I’m going to work a little on the hand stitching. Short sessions are necessary as I’m still wearing a wrist brace. It’s not improving so I’m booking for a cortisone shot in a few weeks.
On my design wall is a little chickadee that I thread stitched. I added fusible, cut it out and I’m auditioning fabrics for a small piece I want to make for an auction fund raiser with SAQA.
Now that I’ve got my counter top for my other machine with the under cabinet lighting and my large monitor that I can watch shows on, at night I’ve been spending more time there working on regular quilting projects including these majestic mountain blocks.
I haven’t been listing here as often as I’d like. I’m listening to my doctor and trying to slow down a bit. I’m still working in my studio and often post on Instagram and Facebook. You can find me on Instagram under the name naturetotextile. I’ve yet to figure out how to add the link here with this latest blog APP.
