No ghosts here... though I got the feeling that a few people thought I had become one.
Happy Halloween! Happy Thursday! A Good All Hallows Eve to you!
A couple of friends thought I sounded a bit mopey and sad in the last post - even though they knew that I wasn't. Not really. It's like this - when you know you're going to be out of the house the same night that a really good episode of your favorite television show is debuting, you record it on DVR. You're happy you're doing what you've chosen to do... you'll find out what happened later... but you still wonder what's happening when it actually starts.
Let me clarify - Quilt Market is a lot of fun. Really. Seriously, you've seen the pictures. Does anybody look like they're really, really working? Sure, it's exhausting... but it's also like being in the biggest, coolest quilt shop ever, and it's filled with folks who love the same things you do.
I also enjoy the bustle of people - though it can get a little overwhelming at times. And truly, you didn't think I was any sort of shy, retiring sort... as if? I get nervous before presentations and it all starts but to date, to the best of my knowledge, everybody who's ever gone to Market has survived the experience.
Life here the past week has been very nice - I actually got to sew! Not nearly as much as I would have liked but that's the case for most of us. In between sewing some new Little Bite quilts - coming soon - and getting the covers proofed for the last couple new Schnibbles, I dived into a sewalong on Instagram last night.
Those are my finished half-triangle squares - stitched, pressed and trimmed. Almost all the prints are from the Freebird collection by MoMo... vintage Moda. From five years ago, or something like that. Tomorrow - I'm making blocks! I'll let you know how it goes... I'm just hoping it isn't some frightening nightmare when it's done. Rumor has it I'm venturing off the farm with a tiny little variation or two...
So have a good day and a Happy Halloween!
Raggedy Mark and Raggedy Carrie.
I just realized something... I had a weave!
