It was a very quiet quilting weekend here. That was what I needed after last week. On Saturday, it was miserably hot and the humidity was high and I stayed inside. It rained in the afternoon and cooled off some and we went on a thread run and to dinner. But, other than quilting supplies, there was just no point in going out in that. I quilted. A lot. I enjoyed some really nice working in the yard time yesterday morning and late yesterday afternoon, just cleaning things up and watering. Summer work.
I ended up doing the background in 9 of the 12 blocks of the Simply Delicious quilt. I've been trying to come up with a name and the best I've got so far is Nothing Simple About It. But, it's not sticking to me like the really good names do.
I liked the background filler in one block. But, I'm loving it as a common theme in all the blocks. I love the texture it's giving the quilt. And, when you look full on at it, the quilting disappears. It's only with side lighting and shadow that the quilting really shows.
I know I have the right man because of a look he gives me when I've just done or said something awful that says it will all be okay in a few minutes. And, he can wait it out. That look has caused me to do and say fewer awful somethings.
Everybody have a wonderful Monday! It's a new week. Anything could happen.
