I had the best of intentions of quilting yesterday--and actually, I came close to doing it. The Jem is put up in preparation for dragging my old workhorse Viking out. Looks like enough bobbins are wound already etc. Floor is even vacuumed up but I have since started messing it up again, LOL.
So what did I find myself doing? Sewing backing fabric for three quilts and pressing binding for 4 and dis-asssembling a quilt Finn sent on behalf of her friend Betsy. It is may be full-queen and would be great for a boy but wayyyy, too large for WTIL purposes. I've got a before shot taken so you'll see it down the line. Large sections can be used but re-sized and other parts I am cutting down for 3 inch finished HST's. I knew that the 4 inch bias square I own would come in handy some day.
You see, it officially hit 99 in Anniston yesterday--95 by our thermometer. By the time Mr. Clueless put on the a/c at 11 it was up to 84 in the house so it takes a long time to get reasonably cool in here. (It goes off promptly at 10 p.m. when he goes to bed too so at 7 a.m. this morning it is about 71 out and 78 in---my continual summer complaint, I'm afraid) Can you see why I might not want a quilt on my lap when I cannot stop sweating even with the a/c finally turned on and a fan blowing too? I ran an errand yesterday morning--at least the a/c is on in the car-- and immediately got out of my street clothes and back into my nightgown as it is the coolest thing I own. Quit bitching about it because it ain't about to change anytime soon, Linda. After all, you didn't move South for the summers!
So what are you viewing in the picture above? Well, I went out to the kitchen about 1030 last night and where is Ms. Pippi? Up high on the pass through window between the kitchen and living room. And her with the repaired leg!! She hops up on the back of the couch which is below the window area, up to the fridge which is on the left, atop the cabinets and then up here. AND then looks to see how much higher she can go! Sorry, Kits, that is as far as it goes with that vaulted ceiling. Here she is laying on the windowed area below but looking from the living room side into the kitchen.
Laundry is started, breakfast consumed, back to cutting down some huge HST's and flying geese and then sack this up for later sewing. Finn, thank Betsy for me.
And so it goes in my little corner of the world--------
