And I have to share something about my husband, something really good. For years he's been saying that he wants to paint, but while he was working, he just didn't have the time, or the energy, or the mind set to be able to do it. Then, shortly after he finished working, we got involved in the renovations for our apartment, and then the packing and getting our other house ready to sell. Then there was the moving, and unpacking, and settling in, and finishing up the details around here. Well, a couple of months ago, he finally decided that it was time, he was ready to start what he's wanted to do for so long, with FABULOUS results.
And then, there is my talented son, who is a carpenter. He sent me some pictures of some podiums the theater he works for asked him to build. I'm blowing my family's horn tonight. I wish I had kept the picture of a theater set he built last year. I don't know what play it was for, but it involved 3 separate floors that were shaped like clockwork cogs, that rotated and the gears all went into the other. I have an idea in the back of my head to design the perfect sewing table/cutting table/ironing area designed for quilters, custom fitted for their height, and then he could build them and sell them. But he'd have to have his own place and work shop for that, so that would be a while in the future yet. Anyway, that's it for anything new around here. I have a few customer quilts to show, but they deserve their own posts, so I'll do that later this week, Tuesday maybe.
I loved seeing your husband's and son's works! I am amazed by both their talents! Hope you get that quilter's table designed...in about four years I will be ready for a new table in my sewing studio!ReplyDelete
You have a very talented family!ReplyDelete
wonderful work by both your husband and son! and your quilt top it great too! Hate days that require as much ripping at sewing but this top looks worth it. Maybe you and your friend need another day and it could be your 'border' day!ReplyDelete
Oh and I love the idea of toting stuff in a laundry basket---clever girl!!!
