When your sewing machine is broken, you have extra time if you are a quilter. I have no tops that are deadlined but I have a few things I could be working on. I want to remake a couple of quilts on a small scale for samples. Maybe, I may just go with the quilts I have because I really am not excited about remaking anything just for the sake of a photo.
Sooo I have decided to try a test for a vlog. This required some thought, figuring out my camera, how to monitor my video and edit the photo if I want. That took hours!!! Video blog a couple times a month at first and my idea is to simultaneously record my podcast. I am going to try it out and see if it is something I can do. I think I can. I don’t want my vlog to be complicated or super long. I like simplicity and eventually maybe have some how tos or show and tell , maybe those videos will just be shorts for my facebook page on quilting. I plan to post it to You Tube, my Vicki Holloway Quilting Facebook page and here.
here is the test video: https://www.facebook.com/vickihollowayquilting/videos/1605163982829671/
So what other creative projects have I worked on? I made the grand daughters Easter Egg amigurumis. Some have little chicks in them. I really don’t know why my eggs are all different sizes! Ok, I am not consistent in tension and that is why I NEVER make anything in pairs like mittens or socks! I long armed two quilts since my last post and here are the backs. I have 3 customer quilts in queue and several of my own. I won’t be bored while my sewing machine is out. In fact, I have a cowl on my knitting needles that I started back up on. It is a nubby cotton and will be perfect for summer and vlogging accessories.
I am really working on being healthy with diet and exercise. I have lost a couple of pounds, been to gym more consistently. I am going to try to get outside a bit and straighten up the gardens and fairy gardens. See the poppies are coming up! We had snow last week! I am looking forward to spring and having some sunshine. And last nights bright mood did look like a Pink Moon for April. Yes, stargazing at the dark sky park will be soon for me!!!
