Hello to my Quilting Friends
Hi!, I wanted to Thank each and everyone of you who posted on my page about my daughter! That meant so much to me! Thank you, Thank you! For any of you who wanted to see the clip of my daughter, that she made while she went through all she did( to have this baby)....right up to her Great news... its cute. Of course I do think this ...LOL.....it's my baby girl! Here is the clip, for anyone who would like to see it! She went to the doctors today, and her numbers doubled, in two days..doctor said she is doing great!
Well here it is Wednesday and everything I had planned out for this day, isn’t going to happen.
( Not feeling to good today.) Had to go to another thought of what I could do in my nest....as today is an oxygen day.
After getting all settled in…. I popped into my DVD player two different CD’s I just
purchased From Connecting Threads group!
This DVD was on sale… and it hit all the areas of quilting that interest
me. This is called: Quilters Circle The Essential Quilting
DVD collection......Awesome DVD. I have learned so many new techniques today!
Learned more on the color wheel… and I thought I knew everything in that department...especially since I was a hair stylist up till 41/2 years ago. Its what I use to do for a living...my passion was color..as I loved doing hair coloring.....highlights. I once used 7 shades of blond hair coloring to create the most natural shade of blond. Sounds kind of harsh,but really it was so natural looking.
What I saw too on this DVD was ( free motion quilting...that I truly love to do, yet it was very interesting to see some new ways. These I have not tried out yet.
Practicing is really the best way to get these designs down good.
Then learned a lot of Thread Tension troubleshooting .... which was a plus to learn...As there are times I could actually scream, when the tension gets all -weird on me.
Now I can be a tension doctor LOL!
As I have been in bed, all day long.... I am doing some English paper Piecing too! I always have it all in a special container ready to work on, especially when I have these bad days.
Must say, as the evening is moving in, I am feeling better.
Now I wanted to express that I hear all the time of painting on your fabrics. Until today, I
never thought that sounded so great… well I changed my mind. That was on that DVD and what I saw and learned was how to do it all... Very awesome. ! All of this has my mind spinning with thoughts for a baby quilt, and how I may apply some techniques too!
I do believe I am starting to feel better already!
Everyone have a great evening doing your projects....Thank you again for all the very nice words for my family and I. Hugs oxoxoxox Morgan
