Word for 2016
Back in December when I saw the post on this linky party at Patty's blog Elm Street Quilts: Happy 2016! Word16 begins I really wanted to participate! Time is limited, but the more I thought about it the more determined I became to do a mini. What WORD would describe what I wanted to do this year. Going into my fourth year as a blogger I have gotten opportunities that I would never have had without blogging. Making quilts and projects for designers and companies is like a dream come true for me. For almost 4 years, I have hopped all over Blogland trying to gain followers and keep it interesting. This year I am going to do that and work on making things to beautify our home. I look at people like Lori Holt's Bee In My Bonnet home and gasp with delight. From quilts to curtains you will see things you will want to make.
Home is not just a house but a place filled with love
Home is were the heart is...
I want my home to be beautiful and inviting with handmade items that reflect our eclectic tastes.
I first began this project in high gear. Running through fabrics and thread but when I was done I was disappointed with my work. My little quilt looked messy.
Does that ever happen to you? I had sewn my binding on the back and rolled it over to machine sew on the front. As you can see, I was a bit rushed and sloppy. After looking at it for a week I decided it was unexceptable to leave it like that. I got my seam ripper out and spent a good hour or two removing the binding. I know it is small but I had to remove the stitching on the front and again on the back.
I was really impressed with this article and thought you might enjoy it too!
