I save all scraps bigger than 1" meaning I have piles. I made this notebook cover several years ago and carry it daily. Just makes me happy! @minickandsimpson Prairie Paisley #showmethemoda is one of my all time favorite lines.
For my #missingmarket @thesewingloft #scraphappens challenge I chose to picture this book cover. @gogokim
Ok I am playing along with @gogokim and @thesewingloft for #missingmarket. 5 things to get to know me are: 1. I am an identical twin with @aandriole and have 3 other sisters, @mahquilter, @cae3540, and @gerigallo. 2. Geri does not sew, not even buttons. My other sisters and I have been known to write quilt patterns under Sisters' Quilting Trunk. 3. I recently (yesterday) stopped working and can now spend more time quilting. 4. I like crime TV shows.5. I would prefer to be 10 to 15 minutes late for anything but my husband needs to be early for everything, too early in fact.
Several years ago, like 25, I met a lovely lady at work. Through the years we became cherished friends. When I moved to a new job she was my first hire, 3 times. I am embarking on a new adventure, leaving a job that defined/consumed a big part of my life for the last 16 years. As I am unpacking the dreaded box from work, the Jim Shore Quilt Angel she bought me is now proudly displayed in my quilt studio. I did not get to bid her farewell on my last day in the offline, because she is on vacation. I don't want to call her and spoil her last few days. So, I will drive to see her next week on the day she returns. We will be sad and cry but I am sure she will be excited for what the future holds. We always thought we would share a retirement party. Oh well, the best laid plans often don't pan out.
I think I will take a few weeks off before deciding what my next adventure will be. I am already planning several quilts projects and will have more time to share pictures and maybe start designing again. Wish me luck my IG friends!
OMG Happy mail! I am SEW excited! All my favorite fabric lines! My husband watched me open the box like it was Christmas. He said the tins would be perfect in his new garage to hold screws and bolts and things. I told him he has a screw loose! I need them to hold thread and buttons and templates for my EPP projects! #showmethemoda
