Went in my studio to spend a few minutes and unwind. You know--stress gets you down and you get this urge to fondle the fabric, nest a needle, or peek at the pens? Anyway--I had to have a few minutes. I did a little rearranging or organizing as I guess I should say. I am constantly feeling I should do that when I would be better off if I would just WORK ON MY PROJECT! Above shows a small amount of progress.
Then I decided to wind my vintage rick rack around an old spool Works well--I can now see just what colors I have and how much I have. Of course this is not ALL my collection (not hardly) just all that would fit on the spool.

Well, I didn't have time to get to my fat quarter shelf. I think it needs just a little attention. I'll get to it another day.

Before Iknew it I had my Bunny Hill Block pieces cut. I decided to use prepared applique for this months block in stead of Steam a Seam 2 fusible method.
I fused freezer paper templates to the fabric then cut them out adding a scant 1/4 inch seam allowance. A little school glue stick around the edges and they are ready for the light box.
Just a peak at some of the new fabrics that I purchased at a retreat at Alford Inn.
These are a few with large scale---



These are especially my favorites because of their aged look.

A couple of hours later, I emerged from the studio feeling refreshed and ready to face the problems still ahead
But Louise was POOPED!

Sometimes cleaning up is just what the creative doctor orders. You did a good job cleaning and still reaped the rewards with some play time. Great job!

The cleaning part is not fun to me. Poor Louise is sure enjoying that much needed nap.

Pat said...

You sure wore Louise out. She is a sweetie!!! Love the new fabrics you bought.

Pour Lou! She looks exhausted. Sew glad you had some good time in your studio -- it is good for the soul and refreshes us!

You are right, re-folding and fondling fabric is very soothing.
