Would you like a shopping spree at Green Fairy? Can you imagine living under this roof? Who do you relate with this as you read this post?T
Do you ever do something just because it makes you smile, reminds you of the playful side you love, or just BECAUSE? The giveaway continues.....If you posted yesterday then feel free to enter again. The prize will be a gift certificate to Green Fairy quilts and I will let you know when it closes. This post's entry for the giveaway is leaving a little ditty about a story that accompanies this art piece or leaving a note of who you best relate with in the photo. Have some fun with it! I am using small quilts to practice my fmq. I find that they are a quick fix for wanting to create while not using a lot of my fabric while giving a sense of immediate gratification. Large quilts may be a thing of my past but then again, I long to create a traditional quilt someday....With this small piece I am praciticing decorative stitches on my machine and precision by outlining the florals in the outer border and working on perfecting the tension on the back of the quilt. Always my nemesis! Speakling of perfecting......My Noah is participating in the long jump this Wednesday and has been practicing with Sean. Tonight he asked me to join instead of staying home to quilt and remarked as we were leaving the home, "This is how athletes are made.".......Practice practice practice whether it be with a needle or running shoes! Sending care your way! Em PS.....I wanted to write and let you know that I am appreciative of your comments and they make me smile. Since moving to the NW, I have been working on balance between my personal time and family time. I am sorry that I do not always respond to your comments but I love them and that you support me!
