Very fun and busy week. I've been getting back into the groove of having the shop open on regular hours and gearing my day to quilting. This past week saw a new addition to the family in this wonderful little guy.
|I call him Pokey.|
The longarm needed a stable pincushion that would hold onto the longarm bars. Pokey is working out great as his legs just hangout over them.
|Just hanging out.|
Now I don't have to worry about looking for the pins all the time. He gives me someone to talk to as well. lol
Then I decided to check out what scraps I had hanging around. After discovering left over quarter circles from the OH HO quilt I have been working on ( Just have to find the right border fabric) came up with this new quilt.
|Bright and colorful.|
Tyler calls this one the Buoy Signs. He figures it is a warning to all ships in the area. Made me laugh. Once again on hold until I can find the right fabric for the borders. It is going to make a great kids quilt when it is finished.
|Look mom, almost perfect corners.|
Then of course since it was scrapy week and what can I make next. Out came the scrap bucket again and this cute little table topper and 4 matching pot holder/trivets were made.
|Perfect for the sun room lunch table.|
|I love using up scraps.|
So all in all it was a productive week. I've put my scrap busting techniques and ideas to work and had fun all at the same time. A perfect mid week review watching the snowfall in our wonderful Canadian winter. All is good.
