We're having a snowfall today, and though I was shocked at first when I woke, now I'm reveling in the light and the quietness of it all. There is something inherently peaceful about a fresh snowfall.
The backing is a soft gray flowery fabric I bought at Joanns on the latest sale, I think 4 yards cost me $10 or something, it was an incredible sale.
The pink light is when my Dad walked into the "studio" and flipped on those ghastly tungsten lights--ewe. The "studio" is actually a barn, so don't let me fool you into thinking I've got a set up. I love barns yo! Space. Now if only he'd let me paint it all white inside!!
The quilt is stippled throughout, which I do on my Bernina 1008, a no frills basic workhorse sewing machine. I am asked so often on what machine to buy for new sewers, and I always answer "no bells, no whistles, non computerized Bernina".......I think it's like buying a car, you can add all the frills, but in the end you mostly use it for one thing- to get somewhere. To get something done.
But that's just my opinion. :0)
