In honour of (inter)National Quilting Day, I decided I'd better sew something! I made six more blocks for my Black & Bright quilt. I only have six more 'brights', so this project will soon be on hold until I stumble on some more brightly coloured nickels - - I don't want to repeat any fabric. I also pieced some 3" units for my Black & White quilt, but that wasn't exciting enough to take a photo...
What I AM excited about is the two new books I got last night! BQF Gail did a bulk order for a few of us in the local quilting group for the latest Bonnie Hunter book "Adventures with Leaders & Enders". Since I didn't have the first book "Scraps & Shirttails" I asked her to order that for me as well. I am so excited, because I'm a huge Bonnie Hunter fan, and I love scrappy quilts.
There was a rummage sale at the Presbyterian church a block up the street this morning - - I was there bright and early and snagged four shirts to 'repurpose' a la Bonnie. I think my favourite quilt in either book is Virginia Bound.
I intend to do some more sewing this week - - I have a couple of sewing 'dates' on my calendar! Even just the little bit I did today makes me feel more like "me". It's the creative time that I carve out for myself that I was missing these past couple of months. I really should put this important item on my 'to-do' list.
