Hello Friends, I hope you have been well. I haven’t fared so well — I have been under the weather. I am taking things a little slowly, which is hard for me to do. This is the first day I felt like I am on the path to normality! I hope you have been well.

DAY IN LIFE
I am working on my third quilt top this year! Having been sick, you can imagine I am in a “leading from behind” situation. I can’t quite share with you those quilts, but I can share with you that I entered my Thread Journey quilt into a juried show. I don’t know yet if it is accepted. I hope it is…. I will let you know one way or another.
It is heavily quilted on my domestic machine to highlight the threads in my Subtle Strings collection. These Aurifil 50wt threads were selected for beautiful quilting results, as well as piecing! You can purchase the thread box here: https://pumpkinvinecorner.com/aurifilcollections4.htm — it is now available at $79.99 — an amazing price from the normal retail price of almost $150! Be sure to grab a box, or TWO, or THREE!!!
Here is a close up picture of the quilting on Thread Journey:
Have you seen my new book, Stitching Pathways?! In it, I shared about a cheaters way to get started on feathers… YOU CAN NOW PURCHASE THE BOOK FROM ME FOR $24 including shipping! I just received 100 copies of the book!!! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
I will be sharing free play mat project to go along with the content in this book in the last week of February. We will be making the play mat solely with machine quilting. So, get the book because I will be referring to the book for the stitching motifs we will be using! Of course you can also purchase the book from Amazon, or from my publisher, Landauer Publishing.
That’s all for today! I will catch up with you later!
