There was very little stash activity this week, very little sewing going on at all, actually. However, yesterday, I spent basically the entire day yesterday in bed, hand-quilting Mom’s quilt. It was a gloriously relaxing day – I let Hulu tell me stories, and I think I’m getting much better with the hand-quilting (after a kazillion hours on this quilt, I’d better!)
I’ve finished 20 out of 28 panels – the end is definitely in sight. Of course, after I finish the four layers of outlines, I have to figure out how to finish up the 28 centers… but that may just end up being tied for simplicity and speed’s sake. Mom still hasn’t replied to the email I sent her almost 2 weeks ago now, trying to figure out what we’re going to do with our relationship. That’s ok – I feel better just having sent it. I’ll be glad to be done with her quilt, give it to her and then move on.
On the fabric in/out front, two very tardy shipments from eBay arrived. A package of six fat quarters each from American Jane’s Snippets in blue and green colorways, and a layer cake of Hello Betty Retro – which I don’t much care for; too many greys.
That may turn into a giveaway, along with a few other retro items – check back later this week for that. 🙂
I’m off to work, but first wanted to share these “moments” photos:
The View From the Hoop
It’s was a beautifully foggy morning, and the drive into work was lovely. The commute to work is 35 minutes each way, but it doesn’t bother me at all – the 20 minutes closest to home are beautiful, country roads that are a pleasure to watch roll by, regardless of weather. Some mornings and afternoons, it truly outdoes itself, as with this morning as the sun rose.
I wish the Droid did better with capturing photos in low light, as only a couple of them turned out to be at all passable:
