News From the Studio
That Mystery Quilt from the May workshop is finally done!Can hardly wait for our first guild meeting next month to see all of the quilts the other participants made. Sue Jones, the workshop leader selected these fabrics for me.
Here’s my customer’s version on the frame. Workshop leader, Sue Jones selected these fabrics for her. Gorgeous.
Most of the time I make a sleeve for my quilts out of left-over backing fabric. Here’s one I made recently for my Mystery Quilt, What Knots. Go to How to Make a Quilt Sleeve for instructions.
New Panto in the StudioAnother new panto is in the studio. My customer made a Wizard of Oz themed quilt, and the panto is call Torrent! It just gives you the ominous feeling of that approaching tornado, doesn’t it?
Learning for the Week
A few days ago, I had occasion to drop in on a quilting friend, and we spent a good bit of time just enjoying each other’s company. It dawned on both of us, how easy it is to get so busy that we forget to nurture our friendships. So, this week, I had lunch with a new friend, and we sewed together and talked all afternoon. The next day, I had lunch with another friend. It’s been too long since we’ve spent time together.
Who is it in your own life that you need to just spend time with? Which friend do you wish would ask you to lunch? Have you ever heard of a phone? Do you have her number? Just ask her to lunch. A long lunch. Nurture at least one friend this week. She needs you.
Now, go call your friend, then let’s go quilting!
