I might have bitten off more than I can chew on this first whole cloth on my domestic machine. Since this is the first time quilting on my domestic, I have decided to hold off on doing feathers. I have also decided it would be in my best interest to mark the whole design…. minus the stippling.
While my new BERNINA is wonderful… I am not so sure I can successfully quilt on it as I have on my A1. Wish me luck… I am waiting on my new Craftoptic glasses before I do any quilting. If you haven’t seen these glasses and have any neck or back issues, you would be doing yourself a favor by checking into them…. www.craftoptics.com
Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
This has been a busy summer! Hopefully we are all in our final stages of our whole cloths… I can hear the clock ticking in the background here at my house. Tick Tock Tick Tock… can you hear it? Please send me your pictures @ Lisahcalle@me.com Here are two that are done. 🙂 Congratulations ladies, they are gorgeous!
I am still working on mine as well. 😉
No, I am not excited at all!! I have had a nice summer of spending time with the kids swimming, golfing, and going to the beach BUT I am ready to get to work. This summer was a transitional summer…. that’s what I’m calling it. I have stopped doing quilts for customers and am focusing my energy on teaching, patterns, book proposals, working with BERNINA as an ambassador and creating my own quilts.
It was a little difficult going from physically doing quilts all day to sitting at a computer or my sewing machine. I am now ready to hit the ground running. So many ideas…. will there be enough time….. I sure hope so!
My quilt, Crown Jewels, will be making the trip to Houston! This will be my second whole cloth that has been accepted. I am honored!
I will also be there and hope to see many of you! I will be working in the Urban Elementz booth selling my rulers and DVD’s! As soon as I get a booth number I’ll post it here.
I will be posting a whole cloth challenge update on Wednesday. I will post all of the pictures I have received all in one place. They are spectacular! I will also post where I am in my challenge. There is still time… send me those pics! firstname.lastname@example.org
August…. is it really August? Soon the kids will be back in school, the leaves will be falling from the trees and I will have the house to myself. Well, at least from 8:00am-3:30pm. Oh, the quilts I will get done…
Back to the moment at hand…. I am currently on a little vaca… at the beach. But to ensure that I will have things to do when I get home, I am having a VACATION SALE over at StoneHouse Quilting!!!! Free shipping from August 7-17th on all orders over $40. Use code vacation14 at checkout
Who has signed up for MQX Midwest??? What, you haven’t??? What are you waiting for??? Aside from myself teaching there… Linda Poole, Sherry Rogers-Harrison, Mark Lipinski, Gina Perkes, and Karen McTavish, just to name a few. It is sure to be a blast with loads of inspiration!
I am thrilled to be going to Houston again this year… BUT, I am not only going to be at Festival for two days, I get to go to Market for 2 days as well. PLUS, Crown Jewels has been accepted! yeah!!
ok, I better sign off and go to the beach.
