It’s like another commandment for me. There is so little time during the week. What with work and that pesky need to sleep a third of the day.
Rob was sick last week. He had the most severe case of food poisoning I’ve ever witnessed. And, I stuck it out, right here with him and Friday, he was better enough that I could go to the office, where I had the most stressful day trying to catch up. Anyway, I had some feelings I needed to work out with some physical work and I needed to accomplish. Not anything in particular, just accomplish things.
Anyway, I tried the purple swag on the mini quilt and I didn’t love it.
So, I tried the gold. And, I didn’t love it.
And I asked Rob and he agreed with me. No swag. Save that area for fancy quilting.
So, the mini quilt top is finished. Ta-da!
That left me with a lot of weekend to kill.
I decided to put the blue door in the house quilt. I showed this to let you see half of the threads that need to be buried in order to put in the door. I did it in the blue that matches the color of the door. On the brown silk, it looked pastel. I picked it all out. I tried it again, using less fill, and it looked really baby blue, so I went over it with the dark blue. Then, it looked sloppy, so I picked it out. Then, I tried it with just the dark blue. I got it all done, even burying the knots. And, I picked it all out.
So, I put it in with the brown thread, and I love it. It’s just right. Unfortunately, it took all day on Sunday.
I also put in the tree limbs above the roof. And, I did all the other little details. I even moved the mailbox. I picked it out and I drew it in and quilted it in a different place.
It needed it.
And, now I’m down to the grass. I have some good ideas. Just need to get out a practice piece and see how it looks.
Okay, well, that’s it for me. I got other stuff done, like 5 hours of hard yard work. That really works out the issues for me. So, I’m starting the week off fresh.
Everybody have a great Monday. Lane
