New Energy

It must be spring, although we lost an hour last weekend the extra day light has made a huge difference.
Winter is refusing to let go of its grip and we found ourselves under a winter snow warning Tuesday night. We received about 25 cm of snow and the windchill’s were brutal in the -30C range. Today has been a beautiful and sunny day and the temps are looking promising for the coming week. I’m very ready to get my hands in the soil again 🙂
I finally finished the customer quilt that was on my machine for the last few weeks.

There’s something about the back of a custom quilt job, its always a surprise to me when I see it laid out.

My coworkers quilt is bound I’m just waiting on the label so it can be delivered.

Then it was time for a little fun so I loaded this little quilt and just played, I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I’m going to either make a little something or find a surprise to send to the big sister and then it will be on its way.

We decided to make this quilt abit bigger so today I made and added 12 blocks. They are laid out in my living room and will stay there until I put the top together. My girls and their friends are pretty used to this practice.

I’ve been asked to speak at Quilt Guild about longarm quilting Monday night and show a few of my quilts. I’m not really a front line person but when I’m speaking on something I’m passionate about I really don’t mind.

Work has been very stressful lately, thankfully my quilting helps to ease that stress. I can always tell when I’m at my limit, the quilts start appearing. At one of my most stressful times as a mom I pieced my summer wind quilt and quilted it in 3 days.

  1. Love the quilt show! Great job on that mariner’s compass. At least I’m not the only one that would have a big custom like that on the machine “a few weeks”. 🙂
