gray days are great for quilting

Hello again, it’s ME.

Just came in from running some errands. Having a bit of lunch, then have to get busy. It has stopped raining, but looks like it might start again. So…can’t mow the lawn, can’t weed the flower beds, probably could do a bit of transplanting but don’t want to, can’t weed-whack so what’s a girl to do? Why quilt a bit of course!!

Lori and I got together last evening over dinner and planned our demo for guild night. We’re bringing the Accu-quilt machine to show any newbies how it works and explain this great resource we have for our members. It hasn’t gotten much use of late, so we’re hoping to re-generate interest in it. With the onset of quilters using die cutting machines like the Accu-quilt Go machine, perhaps there will be more interest. We, as the guild, own quite a few very useful dies and it’s very easy to use. You’ll see tomorrow; here’s hoping you’ll want to use it.

I have gotten back into listening to the podcasts that Pat Sloan (next year’s seminar teacher) does for American Patchwork and Quilting while I walk the dog in the morning. I hadn’t been listening much through the winter because adding the iPod to all the winter paraphernalia just seemed like too much. (Silly, I know.)  These podcasts are free and available at her website or via iTunes. Definitely better listening than talk radio of the usual kind! Give them a try if you like listening to something while you are exercising or puttering. You can just listen to them via the computer if you don’t want to put them onto your iPod or other smart device.

Well, lunch is just about gone so I’ll be going up to the craft/sewing room. I could work on some “in progress” projects, but maybe it’ll be more fun to start a new project. Decisions, decisions!

If you are playing along with us in the Loosey Goosey quilt-a-long and have your first star complete, please bring it to the meeting tomorrow night for show and share. It’ll be fun to see what everyone is doing with it.

    Finished my Loosey-Goosey yesterday. I’m not sure that I like it, but I’ll bring it tonight. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone else has done.
