I expected that I would have less time due to school and work and sure enough I have. I love it most days. I have been dreaming of going to grad school for a long time now. Some days though, I feel pretty run down and stressed worrying about how I have no time.
Last night, I managed to quilt some more squares. I now have 16 quilted squares. I have 5 other squares sewn together but not quilted. So maybe tonight, if I get let out early. Then I will just have 4 more to make and quilt. Then I have to keep my fingers crossed that sewing them together after I have quilted them will work.
I can't wait to wrap this last quilt up. I have several more ideas swarming around in my head and I can't wait to start them.
- I did get my prints back from Adorama and they came out okay. I am still struggling a little bit, getting just the right amount of black border on these square ones. I think it mainly is me cropping them all weird to begin with. I really need to find a nice way to matte them. In the past I have used my own bristol board and that words alright. Anyone have any tips? It is a little challenging finding the right type of frame since these are square.
- I am very in love with the boxes e.soule has her little zoo on. If I could figure something out like that for my square prints that would rock. Not sure were to get the wood frames though, or much about archival papers and such....
- So I should have some quilting to show you next week. I really hope to have started my Alabama Stitch swap project too. And I really would love to work on some more fabric printing (this is one of my favorite things lately, but hard to find the time for, because it takes a lot of set up and clean up time with the paint and all.)
- Oh, yes big yard sales this weekend. Can't wait. I am still on the hunt for a decent modern looking couch (good luck right?), fabric, linen dresses and skirts (for fabric of course!), and small things to take photos of.....
