So, you’re like, ‘where have YOU been?’
And, I’m like, ‘under a rock with my new BFF.’
GOOD HEAVENS. My new BFF has been keeping me completely occupied. I am, however, happy to report that we are getting ready to break up the friendship and go our separate ways.
Here’s my new BFF:
We’ve spent so much quality time together that I began to be concerned about what our togetherness was doing to my Ugly Vein. As in, if I continue to sit here machine quilting, is my Ugly Vein going to pop from sitting too long? The pressure can’t be good. The last of the basting pins came out last night, BFF got her binding machined this morning and now we just have to sit together a spell longer for the hand sewing portion of our time together. We had gotten to the point where if I found JUST ONE MORE basting pin and an accompanying empty space for quilting, I didn’t know what kind of injury I was going to inflict with said basting pin. But, really, this is no valid complaint — after all, I was QUILTING. How bad can it ever be when you’re at the sewing machine? And, my BFF is amazingly soft and drape-y so I think she was worth the effort and the stress on my Ugly Vein.
On the other hand, I am feeling a distinct sense of renewal. Maybe, just maybe, it is the impendingness of the new school year that has me ready to stick my head back up…
Here’s the gorgeous quilt:
Isn’t it wonderful?!
Amy has a new Etsy shop with LOVELY things featuring her own linocut designs. And, say, don’t everyone go and buy up all those buttons with the scallops…I’m going to need a set of those. Anyway, Amy sent along the most adorable pincushion WITH matching pins!
This is one of Amy’s freezer paper stenciled Kokeshi doll designs. A is for adorable!
Thank you so very much, Amy!
So, I’m out from under my rock. Look out! 🙂
