One of my parents' properties was featured in a book called "Old Ontario Houses" a few years ago. The first thing that struck me as interesting was the beauty of the workmanship. The lofty gables and the beautiful fascade of each of the buildings illustrated the beautiful workmanship of that era.
The quality of work that I do is the same but the way I work is very different from when I first started quilting. Although I love hand applique, it is now a luxury. Getting samples finished and out the door is the main goal. Machine applique and quilting rule the process. I have committed some time to doing more hand applique this year. I believe that it will bring me a different sort of inspiration and calm in an otherwise crazy, fast life! Are you looking to do more hand applique [or other forms of craft] or are you looking to do more machine work so that you can get more things finished?
