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!There is always time to quilt!
