I received this picture on my phone last Thursday with the message "Headlining!" My son's band, The Letter Division, played their first headline gig at a club in Lawrence last week. My son was thrilled and we were tickled pink for him! So proud to have a rock star in the family!
A while ago I stumbled onto this retro radio fabric in the bargain bin and played with it one night and came up with the idea for a series of "Music is Life" mini quilts. And thanks to Peg's Challenge they are finally a finished set. These are going to hang on the wall by the door in my studio. They remind me of my boys and how much music is a part of our lives. I love the quilting on these and it wasn't too hard to do either. That's a good thing!
Yesterday I had a cutting marathon. This is not my usual mode of working. I like to cut a bit, sew a bit, cut a bit etc. I hardly ever cut all the fabric for a quilt before I start. Mostly that's because I'm usually designing as I go. I cut most of the rest of the triangles that I'll need for the hour glass quilt and I cut a bunch of 4" squares of Katie Jump Rope fabric (I don't have a clue what these are for...well maybe a clue, but not a concrete idea.) I thought since I was in cutting mode, why not? Goals for today: catch up with the quilt-a-long (2 blocks to do) and baste my Little Blue quilt. Maybe get started quilting on that one. Pretty ambitious goals for a busy day! It's good to have a goal!
