Our Short Vacation, and Progess

We just returned from a great trip to the Boston area to visit family, and the Berkshires to visit a dear friend. I love finding the unexpected on a trip, such as this little post office near Ipswich, MA, and Crane Beach.

After we returned, I made some good progress on my Bear Quilt for a client.   I am so glad to re-discover machine applique, and happy that this skill came back to me so easily.  I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve done it on  my machine.

Only 22 more to go!! But I have to say that I’m finding this process to be challenging and Zen at the same time.  Very relaxing, but a challenge to get into all the little crevices around the bear and have the stitches come out looking pretty – like the satin stitch should look.  

Especially when I am on vacation, I take my journal, because ideas come     to me.  Often I see patterns or am inspired to sketch in my journal.  I came across an image that I altered, and will use as either a block design for a modern quilt, or for a fabric design.  Not ready to share that yet.

In the meantime, have a wonderful July 4th.  Have fun and stay safe.  I am also taking time to think and remember those who have fought so hard for our freedom and safety.
