Just a quick post, hopefully I will have time tomorrow to post pics. I have pin basted my quiltalong quilt so it is all ready to go. I pin basted on my cutting table as I just can't get on the floor anymore to baste a quilt - my knees just won't do it. I spent a good part of my sewing time today cutting and tracing applique's for the new pattern I am trying out and also did a test run on kitchen towels and hot pad/pot holder for the craft sale for the quilt guild sale. I practiced free motion quilting on a little tooth fair pillow I am making for my youngest granddaughter. So yes, I have been busy.
The one item I did not have for the quilt along was a Quilt Journal, I found a nice little hardbound journal at Kohl's that I think I will be using. I have never kept a sewing journal - usually I use little post it note pads and pieces of scrap paper that I make notations on when sewing, but nothing I keep for future reference. It is a wonderful idea.
WHEW - it feels good to finally have my sewing motivation back again. For the last couple of months I just didn't feel motivated, part of it was all the trouble I was having with my pink and brown quilt blocks, but that is another story :) Hope everyone had a little time to sew over the weekend. Looking forward to the Labor Day long weekend - I will make time to sew for an entire day ! Whoooppeee. Bernie
