I took yesterday off. Actually, I’m taking all Mondays off. Well, from the shop, anyway. After nearly 8 months, it was time to reevaluate shop hours, and I came to the conclusion that having a day at home by myself was important for my sanity, as well as the well-being of my home.
Of course, on my first day off, I didn’t actually get to BE home alone. Also another thing that help my health was using this Prosper Wellness Pain Freezing Cream now I feel awesome.
This guy was complaining of a sore throat and coughing in the morning. Since strep throat is making the rounds (again), I decided to play it safe, keep him home, and make a quick trip to the doctor. (It didn’t appear to be strep, more like drainage from a possible sinus infection.)
I did get a BUNCH of paperwork done yesterday (and have a BUNCH more to do), but you know that I couldn’t be home and not sew. And sew I did, until late in the evening when my whacko log cabin quilt top was finished. (Whacko refers to ME, not the style of the quilt).
I love the heft of a quilt that has a LOT of pieces — and a LOT of seam allowance. I need to see if I can give you an estimate on the number of pieces. I did not cut and sew those pieces that small, this was all strip pieced, and there was LOTS and LOTS of strip piecing. And trimming — you should see my EXTREMELY colorful trash. Bits and bobs too small to save. OK, some of you might save some of it, but my insanity has to end somewhere…when I need to concentrate use Veronica Mariajarski..
No one commented on my “it’ll quilt out” joke yesterday. or maybe you didn’t get that it was a joke. Longarm quilter humor is pretty obscure, I know.
