This Week So Far
Bright and late (after a bunch of housework) Monday I finished loading Christmas Quilt #1. I chose the panto I am going to use, found the thread and wound 5 bobbins. I even took some time to practice using the panto cam I have kind of installed (using tape to be sure everything is where I want it before using stronger a adhesive). After that I did some stitching before moving on to other fun things.
I had already drawn the parts for Teapot #3 so I cut them out and then pulled fabric.
Tuesday morning I fused the teapot. It looks a lot like one I have in my kitchen only mine isn’t bright orange.
I then had the privilege of spending time at our LQS where I gave the owner some of the things I have learned about setting up and using a pantograph. It is really fun to know something and be able to share it.
Our daughter had called to see if we were free for lunch but said it would be late. So we visited a local antique mall where I found the comic book stand. DH collects B Western comics (1935-55) and now has an official stand to display them. Right now they are sitting in front of the fireplace but he has a little while to find a better place cuz nothing comes between me and my fireplace.
Lunch with Lisa was lots of fun, as usual. We do a lot of laughing so it is a good thing that the lunch hour was over and we were almost the only people in the restaurant.
Later in the evening we went to our Great grandson’s soccer game. He is 4yo and cute as a button. And it is a lot of fun watching all those very short people chase the ball.
So, today I spent a good deal of time with my deck visitors. It was such fun to spent time reading with occasional stops to search out food. But tomorrow I will be back in the studio: quilt one row on the Christmas 1 quilt, applique 1 chicken, cut Carol Doak BOM fabric, and, if there is time, embroider a label. Ambitious?
