"What day is it?"
"It's today," squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day," said Pooh.

Sometimes I need a reminder to stay in the moment. It is often difficult for me when I feel overwhelmed with ideas and think that they needed to be executed yesterday!
Last weekend, I sat myself down and concentrated on UFOs. Yes, those projects that are patiently waiting to be finished. It was quite a productive few days.
For one thing, I finished the Hampton Ridge BOM quilt. Yea for me!
I decided to change the direction of the outer border. I wasn't thrilled with the way the quilt looked. The border fabric is absolutely stunning ... well all the fabrics are!
Last Tuesday, the quilt was dropped off to the longarm machine quilter! That's right ..... I've decided to have it machine quilted. What a load off my shoulders! Don't get me wrong, I love to machine quilt, but a break is nice once in a while! ;o)
Once Hampton Ridge was done, it was time I tackle Ruby's Garden, a project I started back in 2009. Remember these blocks?
The hold-back on completing this quilt was the finishing instructions. I finally took the time to re-work them on EQ7. Lots of learning took place and .... Voila?
So glad it is finally completed. I've always liked this quilt, just didn't take the time to re-work the pattern. Onward to my next UFO!
How is your week coming along? Fall is certainly in the air in our neck of the woods. I've been busy working on an English paper piecing quilt.
One more row to go and it will be done. I'm using half inch hexagons.
The pattern was from the Spring 2013 issue of Primitive Quilts and Project. I'm hooked on English Paper Piecing, like I needed yet another hand project.
Here is my latest attempt of working with hexagons.
Size 3/8" hexagons! "No, I'm not insane, my mother had me tested" Love the Big Bang Theory! When I e-mailed a picture to a friend, DH said "you should put a dine next to it so people have a reference". Hum, my friend did not need a reference point! lol
In case you might, and to please DH, here is a reference point!
Hum.... maybe I should have also included a Euro! ;o)
I'm originally from Montréal, Québec. Creativity and curiosity is a huge part of my life. I have a Master of Arts in the History and Philosophy of Religion! I recently closed my quilt shoppe Fibre Junction. It was eight wonderful years of indulging in my passion for quilting and education. It is now time to start a new adventure. Will you join me?
