....and the quilting is easy! Yes, summer is definitely here in southwest Louisiana, folks, and I am relishing my time indoors with my air conditioner! Monday is my errand-and-catch-up-with-the-house day and after 5 hours of running around in and out of the car I am so happy to be sitting at my kitchen counter in the cool-th!
Summer is a great time to play catch-up on all of the things that you have put on hold because of other commitments. School is out, graduation and dance recitals are over, and ... now what? Here's an idea - dig out some of your unfinished quilt projects and work on one or two. Or find that great quilt pattern in your favorite magazine, pull out some fabrics from your stash and create a new family heirloom or snuggle quilt for that special child.
Can't find any inspiration at home? I may be able to help you with that. This Saturday, June 18, we are starting a new quilting club, the Stash Pot Pie Club. On the third Saturday of each month you will meet at the shop with fabrics chosen from your stash for a day-long sew-in. Denise Domingue, one of our educators, will direct the fun, and when you leave you will have created a beautiful new quilt! And reduced your stash! Sounds like fun? Then call or come by the shop for details - it is not too late to join.
Summer and sewing - a match made in heaven! Have a great day and stay cool!
