We've been having a little dose of summer weather lately, which wasn't welcome at all. Luckily it's changed back to normal spring temperatures, with a bit of rain, so I'm grateful for that. I didn't like the wind throwing my pots all over the yard though, and blowing the birds out of the trees. Sunday was such a wild day I just stayed inside near my sewing machine.
The Log Cabin blocks are all finished, and sewn into blocks of four.
The two big custom quilts are finished and back with their owners, thank goodness. We did put a lot of work into them, I was absolutely knackered by Saturday afternoon. So many people think that we just push a button on the Statler and walk away, but it takes hours of work babysitting the machine and making sure it stitches every pattern exactly where it should. I don't leave it for a minute, which means hours on my feet. Thank heavens sewing involves sitting down, such a welcome change.
I know I've spent too much time quilting when I'm itching to do the dishes and put the kitchen to rights. I let it get so messy while I'm working long hours, and it's very satisfying to finally have time to do the housework. Never thought I'd say that when I was a young'un.
The pink and cream candlewick quilt was so pretty, I loved working on it, but at 110" x 116" it really stretched Millhouse to capacity.
