We all the know the importance
of eating a healthy and
a well balanced diet.
It's a way of maintaining good health
and making you feel your best.
Of course, the opposite is true.
Eating too little or too much
of a certain food group
is unhealthy and can
lead to all kinds of problems.
Lately, my quilting diet has
been all hand stitching.
It's one of my favorite things to do,
but most of my current projects
are either hand appliqued,
English Paper Pieced,
or wool appliques.
The good thing is that
I've finally gotten all of the parts
to my hexagon quilt finished. YAY!
But more hand stitching lays ahead.
It's all the small diamond shapes that
are needed to connect the blocks together.
They're all prepped and ready to go, but
I'm feeling the affects of an unbalanced diet...
I needed some quick energy,
some quick results,
some quick piecing!
Awhile ago a quilting friend's neighbor past away.
She was also a quilter.
And like all of us, she had many unfinished
"works of art".
Her family generously shared
a lot of what was in her studio.
We passed projects and kits around
and I finally took a kit for a French General pattern.
"La Fete De Noel"
The quilter had already started it,
but unfortunately, had cut a few things incorrectly,
and the pattern was missing.
I found the picture online
and sat down with a pencil and paper
and figured out the math.
And started sewing.
It tasted heavenly,
like when you crave a crispy green salad
when it's been missing from your diet.
Sections have come together quickly.
I'm feeling revived.
A couple more days and the top
will be together.
I'm being fueled
and feelin' good.
Until Next Time-
