Quilting Retreat For One :)

Saturday, November 21, 2015 6:00 AM Central

What a wonderful weekend I have planned for myself.  Staying cozzied up in my sewing room with ambitions of finishing Autumn Joy and piecing my Storyteller’s BOM.  My very own Quilting Retreat for One!! The only difference is not having the companionship of other quilters and someone cooking my meals for me.  It’s a good thing I enjoy my own company. Living in the country does have it’s drawbacks as far as ordering take-out.  So I’ll just have to nuke something when I get hungry.

I live on 73 acres but work in town.  This weekend is the annual Christmas Parade.  Town will be crazy.  Timing wise how perfect for me to stay home in my sewing room blissfully working away on my UFO that has taken me more time than I could have ever imagined. I’ll just have to miss Santa this year.

I had allotted one month for this project but have been working on it now for four months.  I am pushing myself this weekend to finish it.  UFO group is Monday.  That is my deadline.  Yikes.

My sewing room is in utter chaos.  That drives me crazy, but until I finish Autumn Joy I have no plans to tidy everything up and put it all in its place. Creative clutter can be inspiring!

Will keep all posted on my accomplishments.




About Sissy Malone

I've been actively sewing since Jr. High School. But specifically drawn to quilting since I was 17/18 years old. My grandmother was a quilter and I became fascinated with the process. I fell in love (awestruck) is a better word viewing applique quilts by Gladys Rashka at the Minnesota State Fair in the 70's. A love affair was born of applique quilts. I still machine piece, but am always drawn to applique. I took classes learning different techniques and also traveled to California and studied a whole week at Asilomar with Elly Sienkiewicz. Quilting is my passion. I am always open to learning a new technique but still rely on handwork. View all posts by Sissy Malone
