Day 227 of 2018

I finished quilting the fabric I started quilting yesterday. 
This is the first time I have been really happy
 with the tension on the back side of anything I have quilted on the "big machine." 
Now to cut it up and make things.

Day 226 of 2018

What IS that? 
Oh, it's quilting.  It's been so long.
I would have finished this piece of fabric destined to be a little gift,
but I ran out of bobbin. 
 It will have to wait until tomorrow.

Day 224 of 2018

I was hoping to get dress number four done before my daily picture deadline. 
When it was apparent that the deadline would not be met, 
I took a progress picture.  
I finished the dress about half an hour later.  
It occurred to me that the amount of time I was late
 is probably directly proportionate
 to the time I spent text chatting with my daughters.  
I would not trade that for the world.

Day 223 of 2018

Update on Little E's quilt:
While waiting in the emergency room with Mom, I finished the green binding. 
Little E will put a label on it later so it is officially off my plate. 
Next I have chosen to resurrect this long sidelined knitting project.  
The pattern is simple enough that it should be a good one for 
hospital visiting and appointment waiting.

Day 222 of 2018

Before I could even get to bed last night, I was called to go to the emergency room. 
As I left to go back home the sun was beginning to rise. 
As luck would have it, I also got to witness a sunset today.

Day 221 of 2018

Usually I only work on bindings at quilt meetings 
so I have a little handwork to take with me. 
I hadn't gotten that far until today, 
but tonight I got going while watching football and now I don't want to stop.  
I am hoping to make it to the final corner tonight and 
then it is a straight shot to the finish.
