The Day's Doings...
It being Friday, first things first. I quilted up another denim quilt. This one is Jacob's and since I couldn't sleep last night, I was able to get the backing pieced and the batting measured and cut, all ahead of time. Cut down the quilting time to about an hour and ahalf. This quilt has a particuarly sentimental block for me. The center block is the bib from a pair of overalls belonging to the man who performed our wedding. No, he wasn't wearing them during the wedding! Not that I would have minded. I actually made sure that there is a block from those overalls in every one of the denim quilts- just for good measure.
Our local guild had it's quiltshow this weekend and, I can't say why, but I wasn't rarin' to go. But I stopped in for a little while. I was surprised to see 4 quilts there that I had quilted. Aren't those fibers beautiful? You see, I keep trying to get it in gear and whip up a nice fall quilt- I am so inspired by everyone's leaves and pumpkins and gourds and ghoulies... but I just can't seem to find the energy to start another big project. So I thought, "I'll just make a wallhanging." But I just stand there in front of the stash... completely uninspired. I saw these fibers at the quiltshow and thought, "ooh, cool." Kinda inspired there. Kinda. Love the colors. Then the lady sitting there reads my mind and says, "Some things just need to be owned by us." Yep, I just needed to own these. Maybe for postcards, maybe for a necklace. And at $3, it was a no brainer.
I crocheted this little bag for my camera. It measures about 4x6". Isn't that an odd little coincidence? Postcards are 4x6" Maybe my complete sphere of creativity is now doomed to be contained in a 4x6 inch space. That's a total of 24 inches... Nonsense, surely. The camara just needed a 4x6" bag! Let's not look for signs where none lie. And yet... when a wallhanging feels like a big project... Ok, I might have a little problem here.
