The sky to the west of me is silver grey this morning. The sky to the east of me is purple blue. Although it’s light outside, the sun is not in sight anywhere and I am hearing the occasional rumble of thunder.
All of which means it’s a no quilting day here for any of the machines. Instead I’ll spend the day working on cutting out a commission of my “Star Crossed” pattern with these fabrics:
And washing these Merino locks:
And hand stitching down this applique block: (The lettering is machine stitched onto the replacement block, it’s the block itself which needs appliqued onto the quilt,)
Of all of these projects, it’s the center one that I’m unsure about. I’ve cut out plenty of quilts, and as I designed Star Crossed, it should be a breeze. And I’ve done enough applique that stitching down that block will be a nice break from standing at the cutting table. But washing those locks, well it’s my first time and I’m really not sure what I’m doing, so wish me well.
All of this, of course, depends on my ability to maintain my energy level today with all that gray dreariness outside. I think I need to turn on lots of lights and turn up the music today!
