well, you are probably correct. I definitely feel less in a rush than I used to - no deadlines now, just ones I set for myself. They have coined a term for all of us who decided we were tired of the "rat race" during covid - the Great Resignation. And I'm old enough and close enough to retirement, it just isn't worth it. I feel sorry for my co-workers who are 10 years younger.
If you can find the YouTube videos Karen McTavish did way back they are great to show you how to do McTavishing. Practice with paper and pencil and do a few sample pieces. Really just figure out your own version of the technique. It is a great way to give open spaces movement.

Can I observe too?
latterberry said...Thanks for the additional info! I have made a few zippered pouches and do know how to "box off" the bottom so the lining won't come out, but I didn't know how to make that big opening. They could make some cute gits to have on hand at Christmas
That is a really good idea. Just a general quick gift stash is great!
Your quilt is wonderful and the red cornerstones will make it sparkle just enough!
I love your sea of a variety of fish!! The sail boats just peacefully sail along above all that wonderful variety and chaos!!
That's a great theme and such wonderful quilt for a 1 year old boy!!!
My goodness you have been so busy visiting and sewing. Your quilts are delightful and will be enjoyed by whoever receives them.
Wow, you are becoming such a practiced accomplished LA quilter!
