This weekend was declared Hockey Weekend Across America, and the Blues had afternoon games both Saturday and Sunday … perfect entertainment for my afternoons spent in the sewing room.
The weekend started with T#1’s 10th birthday party Friday evening. Any day that includes some time with DD and the Ts is a great day. The only downside was that the birthday boy wasn’t feeling well by the end of the party.
I spent Saturday and Sunday afternoons in the sewing room. I managed to get all the rows of blocks sewn together and I got some work done on the borders. Unfortunately, I had to rip out about a third of the stitching I did on the borders (I’ve done more ripping with this quilt than I’ve done with all my other quilts combined ). I think I’ve got it figured out (I hope) and should be able to get the borders completed and sewn on today … so I can can get the top basted to the batting and backing tomorrow … and can start hand quilting, which is my favorite part of quilting. Saturday and Sunday evenings, DH and I watched a couple of movies.
Another fairly uneventful weekend … I’ve noticed that since we retired, our weekends have become quieter and less exciting. I suspect that’s because even though we find ourselves looking forward to the weekends, they’re really not much different than the rest of the week … a far cry from when we were working, when weekends were our only chance to accomplish all our chores - or all our fun.
