I met a fellow quilt blogger yesterday and had a wonderful time visiting! Unfortunately, there were some unforeseen circumstances that occurred just before we met, which Sandi detailed over at Piecemeal Quilts. But all's well that ends well, and it was great to finally meet Sandi, her mom, and her aunt. We had good conversation, and she delivered a quilt she had quilted for me and did a beautiful job on (more on that soon, but here's a peek).
Quilters really are some of the nicest people!
I have long maintained that if you (and by that I mean me) really want to get something done, invite people over. It was just the impetus I needed to make the final push toward organizing my sewing room.
A week ago, it looked like this:
And now it looks like this:
I made Norm come down and take a good look, because who knows when it will look the same again. Although I will try to maintain the balance in favor of order versus chaos.
Even Dolly got dressed for the occasion, and guard pheasant was in fine form. I gave his feathers a light going over with the lint roller.
On to the business of sewing tomorrow. I have a binding to put on the new quilt, a quilt to baste and quilt by the end of the month, and I decided to do the Tea Towel Challenge at 15 Minutes of Play!
Because I happened to come across this awesome vintage tea towel on eBay last week. It's sort of like Peter Max meets Prince Matchabelli.
Like she's looking for her man on a white horse to gallop over the heather and swoop her up!
There is great potential in this tea towel, and I think it'll be fun to see where this challenge takes me.
Speaking of things that look like they walked out of the 1970s, this is from Rival Sons' 2011 album. Maybe Tea Towel Tess is looking at these gentlemen? I think they took a cue from Tess's hairstyle, that's for sure. I can't speak for the facial hair.
