Well it has been a little slow going in the sewing room lately. I did get two of Sara's quilts quilted the first week of the month. But I do work at the Post Office..........no need to explain the rest of that story. I do have one more quilt to go, and it has been a bit chilly up in the sewing room this past week. 54 degrees makes the fingertips a little too cold, and when you can't feel your fingertips, this is what happens when you are trying to piece blocks together.....
So I broke down and turned on the heat yesterday while ironing out the HST for clue 3 of Celtic Solstice
, and within 45 minutes, I was HOT, I had to go turn the heat off. The rest of the house was still a bit chilly ( not as cold as the sewing room was ) but WOW, the heat really warms up my room, QUICK too. So I did the same thing today. I wasn't given too much room to stand at the HUGE ironing board, because hafl of the muddy feet gang decided they were going to squeeze in that small area. This is what it looked like when I looked down.
Then I was warm and ready to start the quilting on the last one of Sara's. I want to drop them off on Tuesday, so I need to get this done, I am running out of time. Well, all loaded,
now change out the thread..................Where O Where is my black thread???? Urrghhhhh! I know I have 2 brand new spools. I had actually bought them way back in June for my Texas Teardrop quilt, and lost them. Recently found them, and now I need them for this quilt. Urgh! I found 3 sport zippers,
one of them fits my husbands jacket. Also found my marking pen that I have been looking for for a year now. Found the flowers I was crocheting out of the soda pop tops.
Where O Where is that black thread?? You have got to be kidding me! Looking, and Looking for over an hour. I give up. After another hour looking downstairs, I finally found the thread, but now it is 2 hours later, and almost bedtime. Not starting this tonight, tomorrow is another day. I did get some of those pinwheels for clue 3 done though,
so it is a start on that too. But it has to set on the back burner till that quilt is quilted and delivered.
