Just brambling along...



What day is today? I lose track. Today I had to think about what we watched on tv last night to figure it out. When you are retired there are just a bunch of Saturdays and a Sunday - I love it! I've been working on the projects I told you about last week, and have made great progress. Here's where we stand.

Last week, a reader asked for pictures of my saddle stool. Here ya go. I ordered it online from www.bizchair.com. My feet and legs don't like to stand for extended periods, so without this wonderful stool, I'm limited in the amount of time I can stand at the longarm. On either side of the machine, I can sit comfortably for as long as I need to. I love my saddle chair.



Also, last week I showed you a sample block I’m using for the guild’s February Quilt of the month. Yesterday, I finished all 40 blocks for the quilt. They came together more quickly than I thought they would - at least after the first few blocks. It took a few to figured out the things that would make construction easier for me. My blog production assistant (my beloved DH) helped take pictures of the construction process. They will be included in the pattern, yet to be written and published. You can see the construction pictures by clicking Free Wheelin’ Block Construction.

The brambles in the studio last week are all under control. I'm sure my customer's brother-in-law, Allan, will be very happy with his handsome quilt! All that remains is for my customer to put the binding on. Here's how it turned out:
 
















I can hardly wait to see what happens this week!
Now, let's get to quilting!
