One might think those things would be a not-so-great combination! But....for me...this weekend....it's been pure heaven!!!
You might remember on New Year's Eve, I pulled these fabrics and did a little cutting...
Well...last night....after the pie (have you made it yet? the pie? trust me on this...make it! I'm making a second one today because the kids are coming over to watch football.)...anyhooo....after the pie....
and the coffee....ah...glorious fully caffeinated coffee......I decided to go back down and start sewing some strip sets. The plan was to just get the strip sets started....that's all. Just get it started.
Sometime after midnight, I believe, my facebook status said "Behold! The power of coffee and an Ipod".
I was a sewing maniac! Had to pull myself away from the machine!
It was the coffee...
and the blaring tunes! Did I mention my wonderful hubby spoiled me with a Bose SoundDock for my Ipod? LOVE it!!!
and the lead foot......what can I say? The Bernina likes to go FAAASSSST!!!
Who am I to argue? Pedal to the metal!
Keep in mind I was working with a very easy pattern. Modern, graphic, big pieces....
and this morning, I got up, had a quick breakfast and more coffee.....and finished it up!
A definite departure from my usual traditional quilts....but it's fun.....and it's one that is going to come alive when the longarm quilter takes over and adds some creative quilting!
I can't quite believe, myself, that I did two tops in less than 24 hours! LOL But hey....I blame it on the weather, the good coffee, blaring tunes and my lead foot!
Now I'm off to put a pot of chili on, and get another pie in the oven before I settle in to stitch and watch football the rest of the day!
Next post.....stitching progress!!
