I work way too many hours as a computer programmer. As much as I love my work, sometimes I'd rather be quilting. Quilting is my therapy. It's a beautiful sunny day, albeit windy and cold. It looks very nice. I can tell from my office window. LOL I really enjoy seeing what other quilters are doing and thought I'd share a couple photos with you.
This is a photo of a quilted postcard my sister made. I thought it very cute. She makes a ton of these postcards and sells them at craft fairs.
This is another photo of my sewing room. See I told you it was a disaster area. You can see a UFO under my table. It's a grandmothers flower garden that I have been working on for years, by hand! My machine is an old Kenmore that I've had for 30+ years! Can you believe it? It's a great old machine and makes the best buttonholes. I used to sew professionally many years ago and have made everything on it. Wedding gowns, Christening gowns, even a Jewish Hoopa. I used to even sew my own clothes. Then in May 1990, I got a job where there were women who quilted! Can you imagine? There were professional women who quilted. I thought only housewives quilted. Boy, was I wrong. They sucked me in and I've been wearing store bought clothes ever since.
Here is my little helper Simba. He's always around when I am trying to sew. Behind his head is another UFO. It was a BOM. I'm on block 6 but still a year and a half behind. It's a BunnyHill pattern. I wanted to learn how to do needle turn applique. I think by the time I finish, I'll be an expert. I hope to finish it this year. LOL
This is normally where Simba sits. He likes to see what is going on outside. Usually, it's squirrels running around. Occasionally, we will have a visitor and he really gets excited. He's a very friendly little guy.
Hope you enjoy the photos. I'm still figuring out the software and where things go. I'm really not much of a writer but always wanted to try it out.
If you're not bored, leave a comment. If you are bored, tell me that, too. OK, back to work.
ttfn :) Yuki
