After what seems like forever, but in reality has only been a month, it's the sound of my long-arm!!
And see that little pretty on the frame? I dusted off my Mary Engelbright inspired quilt I pieced way back in 2012 and plan on quilting her today. Please tell me I'm not the only one who misses that ME fabric line from days back? Sooo glad I made this quilt!
I've also had this fat quarter pack of Rober Kaufman Gnome Living laying around thinking it would make a fun summer quilt. I had to dig through my stash and add a few more fat quarters and was pleasantly sursprised how well the text print created "balance" in the whole layout.
I also just found the red bike print on Ebay for $7.00 a yard this morning, so ordered enough for the back. Hey, nothing says summer better than a fun bike ride on a cute cruiser!
I close thinking about the many different lifestyles we all live and am left wondering how each of you manage to balance your work/home life with our quilty craft? Sometimes, like throughout the past month, I've missed my sewing, yet by days end, I'm without motivation and just anxious for the school year to wrap up. What works for you? Please do share as I'm always looking for little ways to better balance everything I enjoying doing!
