Here's my latest set of hand dyes and threads. This is fuchsia and grape. Love it! They are resting on my completely pieced together pink and cream quilt background. On to making a sandwich. Quilt sandwich silly! Not peanut butter and jelly.

Auntie Jude asked me a question that I thought interesting.

Do you prefer designing or executing the design more?

After giving this a little thought, I think I have to say....it depends.
  • I tend to get bored with piecing fabrics together, so that part of the process I usually don't prefer.
  • I really enjoy designing projects, the sketching/drawing part is fun for me.
  • I enjoy painting, so surface design is fun for me.
  • I enjoy free motion stitching, but don't enjoy struggling with larger quilts on my short arm.
  • I'm not totally crazy about putting binding or hanging sleeves on.
  • I really, really enjoy looking at the end result, especially if it's successful.

How about you? How would you answer this question?
