What a good day for sewing! I finished the "Autumn Splendor" quilt that I'd started quilting just before mom passed away. It turned out much prettier than I expected. The colors are gorgeous and the leaf fabric in the center of the blocks really pulls everything together. I sewed the top a couple of years ago and put it aside for when I'd finally get a long-arm. I had sort of forgotten what it looks like, just remembered that it wasn't one of my favorites. I guess that's because I got tired of it long before it was finished. In the end, it's not a bad quilt at all!
This afternoon I stitched up another jumper for Marley. She's definitely a size 1 and very cute in her little jumper. Jenny picked up some flannel this afternoon, so tomorrow I will make a jumper for Catherine and, if there's time before we start dinner for everyone, I will stitch up the two dresses with the fabric Jenn bought. Then this weekend I'll make a couple more dresses for Cakibug.
Finally, I spent a little time on the computer and found a couple of interesting quilting blogs that I now follow. These are hosted by quilters from the Quilting Board, which I've been reading for some time now. In fact, today I earned the title "a regular here" on the board. That means my LAQ information will appear on the QB for others to contact me for long arm quilting services. Hopefully I pick up a little extra work through the QB.
Nope, not a bad day at all! Happy Thanksgiving!
