It’s a short work week this week. Whatcha’ gonna do?
Got some proofs to read in the next fortnight, so they’re my main focus. Plus healing my pulled back.
I finished quilting the quilt that I meant to finish weeks ago! Still need to bind it, so that will be my project for the coming week. At least do the machine part, although the hand work (tacking it down) will take longer than a week.
Got comments back from the person reading my database instructions, so now I have to fix/update things. And then there’s my real job, of course.
Crochet. Those birthday presents won’t hook themselves.
Painting, cleaning up both in the house and in the garden, and working on my actual job. Also, just over 6 hours of driving round trip on Saturday to go to a wedding.
I have so much work to do and all I want to do is read in bed. It’s cool and gorgeous here, and I really have to get my ass out to the garden while it’s so lovely, but it’s nice inside, too (g). Also house is still crammed with Stuff I Don’t Need But Is In My Way and I have a book to write.
So I’ll just take a couple of minutes to look out my window at how beautiful everything is . . .
I’ve been in a bit of a slump. It was so hot and sticky over labor day weekend, and there were fires in L.A. The ash and smoke hurt my lungs. Stayed in and read, and read some more. Can’t even recall what I read as one book just led into another. Not much sleep. Finally got out and exercised yesterday. Hopeful that all will return to normal in my little corner of the world by tomorrow.
Today I finished a cobbled together quilt I have working on for forever. It started out as a wall hanging of an eagle and a motorcycle. After my quilt shop quilted the wall hanging I decided it needed to be a quilt. Mad decision. I started to say Bad but I think I will leave it as Mad/crazy. I had to add batting, backing , extra borders. There are lumps where there should not be lumps-where I joined batting and backing. The back is Minky dot navy fabric–pieced without regard to nap. The perfect definition of cobbled together. I donated it to a charity (Life of Hope) ride we are going on Saturday.
