The long weekend is over … we now return to our regular programming. Of course, when you’re retired, the “regular programming” isn’t that much different than the weekend … although I still find myself looking forward to the weekends.
I’m down to the last log cabin block … of 70 ... not the 90 I was hoping for, or even the 81 that I expected. I ran out of the white on white. When I calculated the number of blocks I was expecting, I forgot to include the seam allowance. Since there are 8 strips of white in each block, that seam allowance adds up. I hope to get the last block put together and start putting the blocks together … 7x10 blocks which will finish at 63x90, which is still a nice-sized quilt. I need to get some backing fabric, now that I know what size it will finish at.
USA Network had a couple of NCIS marathons this weekend, and I got to see the one they showed on Saturday (while sewing my log cabin blocks) … they were so good that occasionally, I’d forget to sew while watching.
It was HOT this weekend … set a new record yesterday. Perfect weather for T#2’s water play birthday party. Even some of the grandparents joined the fun (yes, I was one of those grandparents … the water straight out of the hoses was pretty cold, but T#2 is worth it ). It’s going to be very warm today, but a cool front is moving in … it’ll be 30+ degrees cooler Friday than it was Monday.
The only thing on today’s agenda is a hair cut later this morning. That will leave plenty of time to spend in the sewing room.
