It’s Friday once again … my how time is flying while we’re having fun! That means it’s time for a little fragmenting … and since I’m the queen of random, that’s right up my alley!
I got the blue and white Irish chain basted together yesterday. I wasn’t sure, when I first woke up, if I had enough energy to get it done … I was still sore and tired from my busy Wednesday. But I knew that the quilt wasn’t going to baste itself – ha! – so I got ‘er done. I baste my quilts together at our church building … the classrooms are empty during the week, and I can shove two large folding tables together to spread the quilty layers out onto. It’s a rather slow process to baste the layers together, but it’s worth it to keep the backing from developing puckers.
After lunch I got started on the hand quilting – my favorite part. I got a couple of blocks quilted, moved the hoop and was settling back in my recliner … when somehow I bumped the can of Diet Coke on the table next to my chair. The majority of the soda spilled on the floor … but I did get some on the quilt. Thankfully, I was able to clean it all up … if you look carefully at a couple of smaller spots, you can see where I had to “scrub” a little … but that’s a whole lot less noticeable than the brown soda spots that were there before!
We’ve had warm weather the last couple of days … mid 60’s Wednesday and almost 70 yesterday. It’s going to feel frigid in comparison today, with a high of only 44.
Today I plan to do more quilting – of course. DSIL will be out of town next week for training, so he and DD are planning a date night tonight. Which means I get to watch the Ts!
We’ll be heading to southern Florida 5 weeks from Sunday … but who’s counting?
