I haven't been able to work on the new baby quilt much, but when I can, I find myself relaxing. So will try to find time to work on it more often, as relaxation is always good. The colors aren't very good- way too yellowy, but at least I have something to post for WIP Wed.
Ugh! I hate the way the color looks, but the ones taken on my design wall with the flash look awful.
The color is much better on this detail taken with natural light. My fingers are all punctured up again from forgetting the finger protectors for the hand on the bottom of the quilt. I find that I also switch fingers and push the needle through with the finger the thimble isn't on as well.
Pieced backs are fun. Working with the left overs and keeping it fairly simple, I often end up preferring the back. But that yucky color...
My days lately begin and end with phone calls and in between...well, little uninterrupted time. The thing I can usually do best with lots of interruptions is - surprise - read. I also am trying to clean house, but frequently have to stop and leave in the middle of changing sheets, laundry, vacuuming. Then when I get home, I don't want to finish! Must be in the mood for house work.
I need a vacation; dreaming of being in a wonderful studio--somewhere else! In the mountains, by the sea, with every amenity I can dream of, and no interruptions. Books for the times I feel like reading, movies and music for the time when I'm hand quilting. A beautiful view. No phone.
