I cannot believe that my last post was October 24. I'm telling you, something strange is going on with time. It seemed only last week I posted a blog entry.....
You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words, this is how I spent Tuesday working at the Shoppe. Need I say more?
I won't even begin to tell you how my day went. What a crazy day! By the way, those are slip on shoes!
You see, I've done this two (2) different shoe thing before, many, many, many moons ago, but at least both shoes were black. A black and white shoe, this is a first!
Strangely, I didn't even notice until well into lunch time. I'm walking around as if everything was normal. I can just imagine what customers were thinking. Once I realized what was on my feet, I cracked up laughing! I'm sure I made a few people laugh too!
As for quilting, I've been plugging away at my Women of Influence quilt. I decided to use that quilt to work on my perfectionism. When it came to machine quilting with Penelope, it was difficult for me to let it go and just do it, but I think I'm managing.
I used to dread "in the ditch" work with Penelope. Anything that I wanted in the ditch or 1/4 inch away, I would use my domestic sewing machine. Vicki from Field Trips in Fiber suggested a nifty little ruler she uses.
Gosh, I'm in love!
It's called The Bitty ruler by Off the Edge Quilting.
I have to agree with Vicki, it's also become one of my favourite tools. I'm actually enjoying doing ditch work!
Last night, I spent some time with Penelope and noticed how much control I had on my machine. It's helping a lot in making machine quilting so much more relaxing for me.
I have so much more to tell you but I will end it here and save the rest for later. Hopefully I wont have a time management deficiency and remember to post in a timely manner.
Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!
