I love to drawl the word “gawwww-geous.” If you knew me you’d probably be surprised: I invented Frumpy, am plain-spoken at best, totally blunt at worst. It just doesn’t fit with my vernacular.
I especially love the word when I can apply it to something like this:
The talented Junie Moon sent me this gawgeous quilt kit as part of the Sewn launch party giveaway. Isn’t she generous? She's a fabulous hostess too, check out the posts about her latest party! The quilt is eye-popping beautiful and I can’t wait to practice some appliqué so I can make it. Don’t tell Mom but I think this would be fabulous in her living room.
This will be quilt #347 on the wanna-do list ....
I’ve also completed my top for the ORBC quilt-along. I’m jazzed – it’s bright and cheery and much more vibrant than the pic shows, or than I would do on my own. I’m new enough to be timid with color, so this has been a great chance to stretch those muscles. I‘m also learning loads – my ¼-inch seam is getting better with this practice.
I've agonized over the back more than I should admit in public, but it's giving me a chance to try other new skills. But the question remains: why would a person who is incapable of creative visualization and geometry take up this hobby?!?!?
