Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday!

Today I am diligently working on my Dear Jane quilt that I started very many moons ago.  One of my friends started her Dear Jane journey about 2 years ago and she is already passing me with her completed blocks.  Now, I would not have said that I am a very competitive person. But Emma has asked me to teach her how to hand quilt-as-you-go our DJ blocks and I just cannot let her beat me with the blocks AND the hand quilting!  All other unfinished items have been carefully tossed into their respective (there is more than one that I was working on at the same time!) boxes and now I am surrounded by little tiny pieces of foundation paper patterns, peculiar shaped bits of fabric (that I am certain I can get a bit out of for something...) and my favourite music playing.

 

One thing that I need to now from you, dear Reader, is this... does your un-picker get a workout if you let your mind wander from what you are sewing?  Today I have been thinking about counting up the stock in my shop.  Unpicked the same piece 4 times.  Stopped thinking about that.  Started thinking about what colour will I do the next block in; un-picked the same row 3 times.  Stopped thinking about that.  Talked to one of my grand-daughters for a few minutes.  Had to throw that piece away.  Gah!  How am I to keep my mind on the task at hand when I have all of these other distractions going on?  I know...  I will write on my blog page!

Last week we got the latest French General range of fabrics in the shop.  OMG; it truly is lovely.  Kind of romantic and pretty but not too prissy -  easier to just say it is beautiful really.   A new fat quarter bundle has been ordered with my name on it.

Bonheur De Jour  

Send me photo's of what you are working on.  Tell me what you are doing.  The sticky beak in me is desperate to know.  :)

Happy Saturday peeps.

Suzanne I would never have ever thought of you as a quilter, or even sewing. Yet here you are.

Temptation is a good thing.  It keeps us interested in so many things and gets the creative juices percolating even in our quiet moments.  Have a look at what goes on in Suzanne’s mind and how she can justify just about anything in the name of being creative!
