Ten Things on Thursday – 09
Another week, another Thursday, and of course there’s always something to say! Read on to see a little glimpse of what’s been going on ’round here.
- So the fabric buying dam broke a few weeks ago, and now it’s flooding. Trust me when I say there’s a backlog of Sunday Stash posts!
- Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts came for a visit and we spent yesterday doing a fabric shop hop of Sydney. It was miraculous, with places I’ve never been before, and I can’t wait to visit her in Melbourne to do the same.
- I’m currently drinking a spicy Bloody Mary. Medium spice, light on the blood and a whole lot of Mary!
- Committing to my goal, I finished all of my #100days100blocks #ShimmerCitySampler blocks this past weekend. Bam! Next up will be photographing them all so I can ensure I don’t miss a single day of posting on the ‘Gram.
- I’ve ordered some rulers from Sewing Machine Warehouse to use with the Juki QVP-2200 longarm. Here’s a cheers to another crazy learning adventure!
- Mr. Sparkles bought new toilet seats for both bathrooms. That’s one you don’t hear about every day!
- I started playing with batik fabrics again this week. I like to think of myself as an equal opportunity fabric employer! Maybe its my mission in life to show the modern quilt world how fabulous they are.
- I got asked by a work colleague and friend about making a quilt for her to give as a gift. I was upfront about the time it takes, as well as my minimum charge of $30 per hour for basic construction. With that disclosure, we are still proceeding. Don’t sell yourselves short!
- On the weekend I took my Don’t Be a Dick quilt out for a photo expedition, but it didn’t go so well. Finding the perfect backdrop for a quilt full of dicks is harder than you might think!
- Mr. Sparkles says he doesn’t like my project box storage under the long arm. “Empty floor, sweetie! Space, sweetie! White walls, sweetie!” Since he does most of the cleaning, I don’t really have a stiletto to stand on. That means it is time to reevaluate the whole studio storage!
