When you're sad, do what makes you happy, so sewing it was. It was also a concerted effort to stay indoors and protect the local community...to not traumatize children who might have had a chance encounter.
I've always wanted to be one of those women who cry "pretty." You know the type, they sob quietly, dab their eyes and glisten beautifully with the residue of gentle tears. Nope, that's not me...I'm a blubber gal...I sob with nose running and with each tear my face swells and my eyes and nose redden so I look pretty much like Chucky in that horror movie. Now there's an image to start your Monday.
So, I sewed and sewed...I tried my best to let my mind fill with ideas and keep myself occupied. In the spirit of Spring to Finish I worked small and told myself that I was going to finish everything I started. Serendipity...it's mini quilt Monday at A Stitch in Dye, Malka's blog. Malka dyes fabulous fabric and makes awesome quilts. I have some of her fabric. Haven't cut into it yet. I need to do that. If you don't know her or her blog, you should go. No lack of talent or inspiration on A Stitch in Dye!
So here is my series of "On the Line" quilts. I think they will make great little gifts for some quilty friends. I used all my thrifted linen. I love being thrifty.
I wanted to try and loosen up like Amber does with her thread painting. I'm not sure I was very 'loose.' I need to work on that. I was inspired by Kajsa's interactive quilt. I loved her quilt on the line....so...
#1 three sheets to the wind
#2 red, black and blue
#4 hot stuff
#5 after a swim
Thursday ends the Spring to Finish challenge. A few more days to get some more items crossed off your list. I have the label left to do on the "wonderland garden' quilt. I should have it ready to post and the instructions for entering the raffle for Wednesday's post. See you then.
