All of this and nothing

I will never lose my breakfast taco seasoning again. 🙌

Putting on a binding. I gave it some thought and decided to as a matter of course to recycle my patterns for this bug and forthcoming applique projects. Apart from the question of storage I feel like I will learn more about designing by starting from scratch every time. But it seems weird, to discard patterns when I am generally a collector of patterns. 🧐

I haven’t done any spinning but I devoted a shelf cubby to it. 😬

Quilting went just fine. I usually have trouble when I use fusible but oddly it went just fine with super stiff decor-bond interfacing 🤷🏻‍♀️ even where it is 2 layers thick. I’m still considering trying different fusibles though... 🤔 at least for small pieces. I generally use heat n bond lite, but the thread occasionally snaps when I quilt through it. 🙈

That thing where you consider taping paper to the wall to draw at standing height then realize you have all these ancillary art supplies from when you took art classes in your twenties.

Applique!!!! Anyway. Trying out some machine techniques. Tomorrow we’ll see how it quilts with all the interfacing involved. 😅

I’ve made some capital investments recently in my spinning wheel, mostly a new whorl for lace, because it’s fastest speed wasn’t fast enough (now it is sooooo fast 😁). And a tensioned lazy kate in the shape of a dragon (from thechainedewe on Etsy). And my husband made me some pretty yarn bowls using his (pottery) wheel, for plying with yarns not on bobbins. Plus I have ordered some fiber (and dug some out of my stash). So at some point I need to stop procrastinating and get some spinning done. 😬😅

Nineties hat.

So I’m kind of suddenly crazily, inconveniently obsessed with applique. I made this bird off some long ago doodle. Maybe I will make new things. I forgot, despite *just* rereading Jane Sassaman’s amazing book that patterns tend to get reversed. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Borders? 🤔
