Do you think my house needs springified? Now, I doubt you will find "springified" in Webster's Dictionary. It is a term I made up this morning. What I mean is that I still have Christmas trees in the living room. See photo below. I will explain. I gave my daughter all the Christmas ornaments before we moved about 10 years ago. And also the artificial tree. I was going to buy a smaller tree and new ornaments. Well, I could not make up my mind on what kind of ornaments. There are so many themes to choose from. That never happened. And every year, I would think the same thing. I never replaced the tree or ornaments. This past Christmas season, I was determined to have some kind of small tree. I like the prim style trees now and found this set of three on sale at Michael's Crafts for half price. I got the trees out of the box and set up but had no ornaments. I needed small ornaments. There was no time to shop for some before I had my knee surgery, so the trees sat bare and are still in the same spot. Now, I have ordered a pattern for some wool easter ornaments to stitch. I would like to decorate the trees with those. And I need some spring quilts!
I need some nourishment before heading back into the sewing room. Which shall it be. A donut or a banana? Help me decide. Oh, I can't wait on the rest of you to wake up and read this. I may faint from hunger before then. I will just have some of both.
P.S. I only ate half of the cream filled Long John but all of the banana. That makes it a healthy breakfast!
Back to what I was writing about being in the sewing room before 5 AM. I could not start the hand work on the yellow chicks wool mat project as it was in the bedroom along with my thimble and threads. I decided I would study the new quilt book I found at a thrift store yesterday. Paid all of a $1.00 for it and it seems brand new. Studying the book did not take long, so I dragged out my Country Threads patterns & books to look at them. Maybe I would could pick out another spring quilt to work on. Yes, I found one. Still I needed to be quiet so Mr. Log Cabin could sleep. I started flipping through Pat Sloan patterns & books. Another spring quilt jumped out at me. Then I started looking at fabrics in the stash to see what I could come up with. Yes, I have fabric that will work. It is a fused applique project. I can do it! So, I started tracing the pattern pieces onto Heat 'N Bond Lite and selecting the applique fabrics. The backgrounds are sewn together. Then I realized that the pieced border has to be on the quilt also before the vine is fused on the one side. I will be going back into the sewing room to make the pieced border. This is not a large quilt, so it should take long. I will post a photo after I get things situated and the fusing done.
My sewing room was a bit of a disaster before starting this morning and it has progressed to more stuff out and on the floor. But I am happy!
