Friday.... great day for finishing up some housework and projects!! I've mailed my Primitive Quilts & Projects "Marriage" sampler to the girls... now it's time to finish up the instructions and send them also. I wish I had a little "fairy" that loved to write my patterns...that's the part that I dread! Love the designing and construction though... it's the best!
My hubby is leaving today for a week trip with some friends to the Orlando area. Since I'm leaving for market next week... he's taking a little time away from the home front also. Strolling through the parks, reading, relaxing...what could be better? I KNOW!!! Walking through the isles at Houston Quilt Market!
I can't wait.. it's been such a long time since I've been to one of the markets...it will feel so good!
I'm also finishing up a few other projects here at home so I can get started on my next design! It's a stitchery set as a center square in a quilt. The stitchery is of an antique bird print that I purchased years ago as an inspiration for a fabric design. Here is the print.....
I teach a class showing how to take this print and convert it into a line drawing. Then you transfer the line drawing to fabric and stitch it... like red work... only I used black thread on this project. I'll keep you posted on the progress of the quilt!
Well.... I just got a breakfast date!!! My hubby and I are going out for breakfast this morning. I love breakfast out...don't you???? They always seem to get the bacon crispier than here at home...and I LOVE crisp bacon.... ahhhh... along with the smell of fresh coffee! Life is good!
Time to hit the shower and get all dolled up!!
See you later chickies!!
