It has been cold and snowy here these past few days, but I didn’t mind one bit. I have been thoroughly enjoying quilting on my new machine. It has opened up so many more possibilities for me and i’m so excited to explore them all. I’m really glad to have a quilt waiting in the wings that needed some custom quilting attention. I am so excited to see this one quilted, and it’s such a bummer I have to wait a little while before I can share it all with you. I may not be able to share the whole quilt, but I couldn’t resist sharing some peeks at the quilting.
I love the precision that using the Statler offers. I also love being able to create my own designs in AutoSketch. I have an exciting quilting project on the horizon and will be making the quilting pattern myself to run on the Statler (which is the computer part of the Gammill). I love a good challenge!
This is a peek out to our backyard and woods. We finally built Brice a playhouse/treehouse/Minecraft house late this summer, but the weather turned on us before we could get it painted and sealed up. Luckily the siding is treated fence planks, so it should be fine until next summer, in the meantime, I love the contrast of the cedar and the snow. We might just have to leave the exterior unpainted and just sealed. The view out of my quilting studio is to that corner of the yard, which will be fantastic come summer when Brice is out there playing and i’m inside working. It’s always nice to be able to keep an eye on him. Not to say he hasn’t been having a blast out there in the winter as well. I’m sure you can just imagine how much a 5-year-old loves to slide down into the snow.
