A BIT OF DOODLING

Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a fab day. It’s been another of those bright and breezy days in my little world. I didn’t go very far today. I spent a little time in my sewing room  mooching around and then decided to mooch around my bedroom where I finished emptying a wardrobe that will be collected by a charity next week. Collection day can’t come soon enough.

I am very pleased to tell you that I have finally finished My Sweet Dresden Town quilt project. The binding and the label have been added and all in all I am very pleased with my effort. In fact, I think I’m more than pleased, I am ecstatic. This is one of those projects which I took from the drawing board right thru to the label and binding. There’s no better feeling in the world.

One of the quilting designs I used on My Sweet Dresden Town quilt was something I called Double E’s. It fills all the negative areas nicely and it’s rather easy to stitch out. I have doodled it out on my Boogie Board just to give you an idea of how it works. You can stitch this out either using your domestic sewing machine or a longarm.

I’m looking forward to drawing the curtains, lighting a scented candle and doing a bit of knitting while watching some mindless TV. The sun is expected to set at 17:46pm. I love this time of year. I came across a quote that I really liked which I wrote in my notebook recently. The quote is: Paradise is not a place, it’s a feeling. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you who wrote or said it and I couldn’t find it on Google. I totally agree with this quote.

So, I guess that’s my report for today. We’re already halfway thru the week. Can you believe how quick the weeks are disappearing? At this rate, it will be Christmas before we know it. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching.

  1. That is one impressive, heavy comfy looking quilt. Bravo!
    Color palette is just beautiful, vibrating. Loads of information, lots to read, like a good book, a map of markers in the country, whimsy, a lot of pieces and quilting. A child could sit in front of it and you could make up a new story every time. Who is living here…where would you find this and that…ask them to make up their own stories about this town.
    Bravo.

    1. Hi Joanna, you’ve made a very good point about My Sweet Dresden Town quilt, I never considered that someone would use their imagination , making up stories while looking at my quilt. I suppose it has many stories entwined in it. That s a lovely thought. I’m so pleased with the first wishes result. Thanks for popping in today x

  3. Hi Lucie! Your quilt is just fabulous and certainly worthy of being ecstatic over. I have never heard of a Boogie Board but it looks like a great tool for trying out quilting designs. Your double “E” pattern has been on my mind since you first shared it. As soon as I get back to quilting I am definitely going to incorporate into my very next quilt. Love it! ~smile~ Roseanne
