Grandpa Bill and Baby Will
I spent the day trying to catch up from not getting anything done at home at all this week.
I managed to get the house clean and then actually worked on my latest quilting project. The only quilting I did all week was read my new quilting book, "ABCs of Longarm Quilting" in the evenings the last three days.
So today I finished putting a backing together, got it loaded on the longarm, got the batting cut and ready for loading, pressed the top and now have it on my basting table ready for the borders to be marked. This quilt has a really wide border, so I've had a time deciding what to put on it. I hope to get it marked, loaded and started quilting tomorrow. So, an hour a day quilting was actually 2½ hours! YAY!
I am also planning on doing Judy's July Hour a Day quilt. I have the fabrics pulled and waiting to be cut -- I've been printing off the instructions, but haven't actually started. Once I get the other quilt on the machine, I hope to start spending an hour a day working on Judy's. I also want to spend an hour a day on my hand quilting and my hand applique, but I don't think that's going to happen this week -- but hopefully by next weekend I can work some time in on all the projects!
Downtime at home today.
The house is clean.
Fondling fabric this afternoon.
A nice conversation with my brother and his wife (Will was born on my brother's birthday!).
