today i was able to sew. i was anxious and nervous leaving edgar for too long, so i'd run home to check on him every 1/2 hour or so. but i was able to get a good start on a little pile of quilts. and i've finally listed the newest farmhouse quilt. this is the lucky quilt that was professionally quilted a week or so ago. my friend megan lives on a dairy farm 20 or 30 kilometres outside of the city. she has 2 kids under 3. and she has a sewing room with a quilting frame and machine that she guides ever so skillfully by hand, creating charming stitched patterns as she connects the three layers that comprise a quilt. the farmhouse quilts really needed her touch. i quite love the new, more finished quality her work gives the quilts. it does raise the prices, but the added value completely supports the price hike. i find myself going upstairs throughout the day, just to admire this quilt. it is a great piece of handcrafted goodness, and the collaborative element makes it even more special
tonight i'm tired. there are sleepy cats curled up around me, and that may add to my fatigue. but it will be good to sleep hard tonight.
