Finished Demo



I can't believe I have waited this long to post about my machine quilting demo on Saturday. (I wanted to have the binding on my sample and then I went ahead and washed it so it would have that drawn up look that really highlights the quilting.) It went FABULOUSLY. I had over 30 people signed up before Saturday and about 50 on the actual day. And then, the fantastic folks at Sew Much More took my initial sample I made (the pink one) and a list of tips I had emailed them and made up this beautiful page for note taking during the demo. And then, I proceeded to machine quilt my blue sample while I talked to this group of women. I gotta tell ya, I had a GREAT time and my quilting looks great too. What can I say, I'm a multi-tasker. I have to say there is nothing like the feeling that you are doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing at the moment in time you are supposed to be doing it. (I'm talking Zen.) I gotta tell you, it is just about the most fun you can have with your clothes on.
Now my daughter and I are going to go make spring chickens for Easter. (Sew Mama Sew has a free pattern and these chickens are very cute.) Happy Easter if it's a holiday you celebrate and Happy Sewing if it's not.

How wonderful, and I agree... nothing beats the feeling of doing exactly what you feel you should be doing! Hope you have a lovely Easter!
