I may not have much time in the studio these days but when I have been in there I have been having fun.
Since every block is different I have not gotten bored. My CC’s are still funny looking and my loops are not consistent but I still am really liking how it looks overall.
Now, about my echoing. This is really a challenge. I must say that I have FAR more control of the machine now that I have the Railz system, but my control still leaves something to be desired. But since this is kind of a primitive quilt I am thinking of this as a practice/learning quilt and thus it looks pretty good.
I have been having fun doing this. I also have been wondering, do other people talk to themselves while they are quilting? I do, and not always complimentary.
I like to play soft jazz music while I quilt. With this quilt, since I have to think more than when doing a panto, I am listening to Earl Klug. The sound relaxes me and helps me to not hold onto the handles too tight.
And, after an afternoon of quality quilting, this is what I came back to. Two of Sadie’s toys have bit the dust. There was stuffing (see white bear) and bits of rubber (see green rubber duck) all over the front room floor. But she loves her toys and plays hard with them so who cares. The other two dogs only infrequently play with toys but Sadie has to have them all out on the floor, tosses them, and obviously chews them. And what, I say, are the toys for if not to play with?
Now, I’m off to shower and then spend another quality day in the studio. See ya!
