I work nights. This means I don’t really have to wake up before 2 p.m. on any given day. (I try to wake up before noon, though!) I get home from work around midnight, and I’m usually up until around 3 or 4 a.m. Lately, though, I’ve been unable to fall asleep until 6 a.m. or later.
I made this little birdie using the Sublime Stitching Kurt Halsey transfer and the floss Candi sent me. I think I’m going to add a few little details (maybe some of the stars from the pattern sheet?) and hang the hoop on the wall somewhere. I need to go to Jo-Ann’s to get a bunch of cheap wooden hoops, so my walls can look like Heather’s.
I’m planning to quilt this sucker today (or at least get the process started)
I keep going back and forth on whether to echo the diamond shapes (which would take longer and mean I have to go back and hide a million thread tails later), or just do organic, straight-line quilting (which I think would look awesome with the vertical print I’m using for the back). Thoughts?
