There really IS no place like home, y’all!
DD got back home late last night, so I was able to get back home. It felt so good to crawl into our bed … so why couldn’t I fall asleep? I could blame DH’s restlessness, but my mind was as restless as his body. I got up, spent a couple of hours trying to get caught up on emails and blogs, and finally was able to fall asleep at 2:30 … and while I’m thankful I could sleep in, I don’t like this crawling out of bed at close to 8:00. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get back into my routine tonight … but if I’m not, I’m sure I will be by Monday, as warm ups for the swim meet start at 6:30 both Saturday and Sunday … and we’re expecting twice as many spectators as there are seats for at the aquatic center, so we’re going to try to get there closer to 6:00 to stake out good seats. And that’s going to mean some pretty early “get-ups” this weekend. That ought to get me back into my normal morning routine. And yes, I’ll be wearing my new T-shirt!
I got to thinking about the quilt that’s next on my agenda, after I finish up T#3’s quilt. I have all the blocks pieced … all I have to do is piece them together and then baste and quilt … except it just dawned on me this morning that I don’t have any backing fabric for that quilt! Thankfully I used Kansas Troubles fabrics for that quilt, so I don’t have to worry about finding something to “go with”. I just have to decide which of the 3 colors I want for the backing. I pieced these last April, so here’s a reminder:
The colors didn’t photograph accurately – especially that blue! If you’re familiar with KT fabrics, you’ll know that electric blue isn’t one of her colors! ha! This is a block I found on the McCall’s Quilting website, called Kiss. Since this will be for our bed, I was hoping to find a block that would have a name with meaning for the two of us.
But first I have to finish up T#3’s quilt … I need to cut strips for binding, sew them together and then sew them on to his quilt. I’d like to get this done before the weekend so I can start on our quilt on Monday.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
