I have a lot of finished quilt tops, ready to be quilted. It is rare that I finish a top and know how I want to quilt it and am ready to start right away.
I have just enough batting for one quilt.
The coats are finished and I can switch the Bernina back to quilting mode.
I have the templates to mark the quilting.
I have the thread.
The stars are in alignment.
The borders are cut and ready to attach.
Let the quilting begin.
Except that’s never how it really works, right? First, there’s work. And, feeding the family. And, a whole host of other responsibilities. And, after that, I can pin baste a quilt and spend an hour oiling and cleaning the machine.
And, after THAT, I can start the quilting.
I really need to turn this quilting thing into a full time gig with high pay and benefits. Imagine what I could get done!
‘Til then, I’ll still be seeing you at the office and the grocery.
Speaking of finished coats, Sydney’s girlfriends asked her where she got hers, yesterday, and said it was so cute. She told them, but they didn’t believe her…until someone noticed that there was orange basting thread in the right sleeve and someone else noticed there were no labels.
Everybody have a great Thursday. When last I looked, I had nothing scheduled tomorrow and both of my bosses, old and new, are in the same meeting, talking a lot about me, I’m sure (just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you). They’re not going to need me tomorrow. It’s supposed to rain again. It might be a good day to be alone with a good quilt. Or book. And some soup. cough, cough, sniffle, wheeze.
