CNY Weather, Quilt Musings

Rainy Days and… – really aren’t that bad

Today turned out to be a very rainy, drizzly end of summer day.  I was looking forward to an ‘indoor’ day so that I could start planning our Winter Trip in January to Texas.  It’s always easier to be inside on a day like this rather that one that is sunny and warm.

I wasn’t prepared for an extra bonus though.  Tom took advantage of the dreary weather to do some ‘honey-do’ chores – all to my benefit.  We found the perfect quilt hanger for my seasons quilt – a drapery rod with decorative  ‘leaves’ (what else!) on the ends.  I’ve been waiting for him to hang it – today was the day.

In addition he bought me a task light to go above my design wall some time ago. My studio is in our basement so there’s not much natural light that  I can count on.  I’m always struggling whenever I have to choose fabrics.

Last night I decided to work on one of my UFO’s.  (They do seem to multiply in my storeroom.)

I’ve put the blocks into rows.  Now just have t sew the rows together and add the borders.  I want to make this twin pattern into a full size bed quilt so I’ll have to add extra borders.  I was auditioning fabrics from my stash last nigt to see if I had anything I could use – and was really struggling to find the right match.  Guess that’s all it took  because now I have my task lighting installed.

What a difference a day makes!
