I slowed on my progress to complete the Fat Quarter Shop's Wishes" BOM quilt top that I made last year.
Who could imagine that choosing a simple border fabric would cause the project to grind to a halt?
Well, it did.
When my head becomes so muddled I cannot make a clear decision the best course of action is to pack up the project and walk away. Mr E's second best advice has always been to 'walk away', and he's a wise fellow so I listen and comply.
Now, almost two months since the last block was sewn and the main area of the quilt top pieced together, I chose the 2" wide final border print. Whew!
Now all I need do is decide how to quilt it.
If it was winter I'd throw it over my knees and hand quilt...but as yet, winter is a dream I hold on to.
After stitching the border to my "Wishes" quilt top I could not escape the evidence of fluff build up in my sewing machine. It's been a few months since I last gathered all the lint from inside and around the bobbin case, but THIS article jogged my memory to stay on track with machine maintenance.
I thought some of you may need a little reminder too?
Now I'm ready to sew again!
There's a true cool breeze blowing through the office today and even though it's 10:15am in the tropics I haven't had to turn the air conditioner on yet. That's pretty exciting to me, so I might continue on with my cleaning mindset and tidy my desk and fabric shelves. After my second coffee of course.
What are you planning today?
Oh, in case you wondered, Mr E's first best advice is to "breathe"...
