“It isn't procrastination if you put it off right away”
Last weekend I attended a quilt show and as luck would have it I bumped into Jenny Dho and her friend Cynthia, Jenny took this picture of us.
There was so much to see at this show, the truth is that the whole quilting world is a new one to me as I stumbled through the vendor booths it was as every thing that I encountered opened my eyes up to new possibilities. One of my goals for the end of this year is I want to start creating art clothing and learn about using proper fabric dye's... I truly think that the array of the different ways of dying that are out there were what really amazed me the most, as I really like creating my own pallet.
Now the true reason for me going to this show was to acquire what I have been lusting after from the moment that I fist set my eyes on it last September, I am not one to spend a lot of money on tools or new gadgets, if its works I am happy with it, but what hooked me on this sewing machine was BERNINA® Stitch Regulator (BSR) - This patented innovation 'sees' the fabric and regulates the length of your stitches, making free-motion stitching easy! you do not need to use a foot control there is a laser that follows your hands as they move the fabric!
now let me also add that once I got this gem home it took about 5 seconds for me to discover that its much smarter that I am! Lucky for me the machine comes with 11 classes at my local sewing shop. On Monday I took the button hole 101 class. I have so much to learn about sewing, I am really excited about my classes! It will be interesting to see how the use of free motion sewing will change my work but for now I am just getting the hang of it.
Here you have a little heart quilt that I made using all my great stamps from RED LEAD
I started out working on my fabric charms for my quilting arts tv segment but as always I got lost and started to make this quilt, I am not kidding any more its serious my next book really will be called:
"the art of procrastination"
Projects to create when your supposed to be doing something else!
(what do you think Tonia?)
I am at odds with my creative spirit as I try to walk the line of keeping dead lines and my life more sane, I just do not understand why I have such a hard time completing the task at hand...
I guess it all comes down to the fact that I do not like to be told what to do, even if that person is me!
“Procrastination avoids boredom; one never has the feeling that there is nothing important to do”
(I must say that I am never bored!)
