I took Friday off. My boss is out of town for the month and has insisted that I take it easy. So I am.
I spent a huge chunk of hte day working on this. Even though it doesn't look it in this pic, I did work out the details of a gradual change in the size of the red strips. It's assembled to the shape of an S and I'm going to mount it to a solid beige background. We also picked up a golden tan backing for it. It's so big and heavy that the only place I can work on it is the living room floor.
Lots of echo quilting is planned for this and I'm trying to work out how to get maximum space from a bunch of sewing cabinets and dining tables that are grouped together in the center of my sewing room. I hope to be able to spread the whole thing out while I quilt on it.
I also got my April Linus quilt pin basted and ready to quilt. This one I'm going to quilt on the 15-91. But, I've lost that huge spool of green thread I planned to quilt it with.
And, I got this one pin basted. It's a housewarming gift for Rob's mother. She's just moved to a new community and we thought this would be perfect.
And, I have one more in the works that I can't talk about here because it's a gift for a reader.
I'm back to painting in the kitchen. I got most of the cabinets primed yesterday. Today, the pantry and some touch up. And, next week, new paint. I am ecstatic. It will be so nice. The paint we put in there 5 years ago has peeled terribly and even the primer looks better than the kitchen has looked in years. Poor Rob. He put so much effort into it and I cheaped out on the paint and bought the off brand and it just never got hard. Later, I get the new floor that's been out in the garage for over a year. I hope it will make it a nicer place to work and that I'll become inspired to cook again.
Take care. Have a great Sunday. Be careful and have fun.
