Rebecca Jo over at Knit by God’s Hand did a “Currently…” post last week, and I loved it enough to decide to
steal borrow the idea myself. Here are a few things going on “currently” here at Chez Nana.
I’m not too far into it just yet, and so far I have to say that I’m really not enjoying it much. I do have to say that the primary reason is that I do NOT like the narrator.
These red/neutral bow ties … I’m English Paper Piecing (EPP) them. I had a half dozen (estimated) bow ties together before we left for Hilton Head on May 9. This is what I accomplished while we were gone:I did most of the basting on the day and a half in the car on the way down, but I soon pieced together everything I’d basted, so I did some basting at the beach as well. I also did some basting on our trip back home (I didn’t include those pieces in the photo), but I didn’t do as many as I’d planned as I failed to transfer the papers and fabric to my portable sewing bag … my Omnigrid case was too heavy and uncomfortable on my lap. I’ll probably work on them today instead of loading my Kiss quilt into my lap hoop because …
This is my laundry room right now:This photo doesn’t adequately convey what’s ahead of me … that is a full-sized trash bag, crammed full to overloading with dirty laundry … with the overflow on the floor around it. I hate this part of traveling … but not enough to give up traveling!
Currently Looking forward to:
My sweet hubby. As we were passing the exit to Paducah on our way home yesterday (after at least 11 hours in the car), he asked if I’d made reservations yet for our hotel room for our trip to the Quilt Show next April. I love that man. And yes, I love him every day … this is just one reason why.
Currently Thankful for:
My DD’s MIL’s recovery. It hasn’t been without bumps and a few setbacks, but she’s been making slow but steady improvement.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
