I'd forgotten just how relaxing it is to work on an applique project. I had so much fun going through my stash of Betsy Chutchian fabrics, and finding the perfect fabric for each petal and ribbon.
The paisley fabric for the birds' wing couldn't have been any better.
Today is going to be a red-letter day. I looked up the meaning of a red-letter day and it is; a day that is pleasantly noteworthy or memorable. Today is noteworthy because the FedEx truck is going to deliver my production samples from Marcus Fabrics. I will turn the production samples into the production of the new Block of the Month for the fabric company.
The only problem is.....I can't show the fabrics to you yet. Take my word for it, you will LOVE the new line from Judie Rothermel for Marcus Fabrics.
I'm going to clean up my quilting room this morning, and get ready to revel in the new fabrics. I looked up the word revel and it is; to enjoy oneself in a lively and noisy way, especially with drinking and dancing. So perhaps revel is not the appropriate word here. How about I say that I am going to immensely enjoy working with the new fabrics, and make my new design come alive. Drinking and dancing will be optional. Maybe I'll dance like no one is watching.
The birthing process begins today. It will be a labor of love.
