I have been stitching away on my treadle and thinking about how much I love the old "people powered machines" (PPM's for short). Click here to see Missy's hand crank machine post and then tell me if you don't HAVE to have one too! I have been dreaming about how much I want to have my own hand crank machine, and thought I must put that on my "bucket list".
On the Quilty Pleasures blog last week there was a post describing a quilter's "bucket list" of 100 things every quilter should do/try. To get the checklist to download, click here.
I scored 93 out of 100, and I could add 100+ more fun quilty things to that list.
What are the 7 things haven't I done?
Haven't gone to Houston, have no interest in Pinterest or Facebook (I know, I am "old school"), haven't yet made a piped binding, don't have a quilty bumper sticker, have not yet organized my stash (LOL!!!), and have never read my sewing machine manual "cover to cover" (seriously, who reads instructions?!?).
On that bucket list, there are 2 things I do still hope to do and will put on my own bucket list: 1) go to the Houston Quilt Show some day, and 2) try the piped binding tutorial. But there are lots of other things I want to do someday, which mostly involve quilting, traveling and holidays... go to the Sisters Outdoor quilt show, take a quilt class at Paducah, take an international quilt class (how about a Hawaiian quilting class in Hawaii!?) or maybe even a quilting bus tour adventure or a cruise!
What would you add to your quilty bucket list?
Snow has arrived here and it was minus 10 degrees when I walked the dog this morning, so I'm not planning to do much outside for the next, ummm 5 months! I will have lots of evening hours to enjoy my quilting and dream about what to add to my own bucket list.
