Slowly but surely the binding on Insanity Revisited is getting done – only one more side left to do – I think I will get it done today but I don’t know for sure. I got another one and a half sides done on it last night while our daughter was over visiting. I had recorded Downton Abbey and I worked on it while we watched that and then NCIS was next up. Here is just a peak –
I am linking to Freshly Pieced Modern today and Sew Fresh Quilt’s. (Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts had an excellent post recently on quilting with your walking foot – if you scroll back in her blog you will find it.) Yesterday morning two different times I sat down for 15 minutes to work on the little Four Patch Delight – it is coming along nicely but a little slower than I had hoped for – remember I had intended it to be machine quilted – the backing is white on white – that kind with the painted white on white!! yuck – never a good choice for hand quilting – that stuff is tough!! At least it is a little quilt LOL.
Today the temperature we start the day out with is going to be our high! I get cold just thinking of the temperature dropping later today down to about 12 degrees tonight – so glad that is supposed to be the coldest it will be. Right now they are saying only one night that cold thank goodness. I guess we will find out.
Someone asked yesterday how do I do 10,000 steps exercise and still have time to quilt – I don’t quilt or sew a lot in the daytime hours – I don’t know why but I do most of that in the evening while watching tv. I spend the day doing my household chores, run errands, exercise, cook etc – that kind of stuff. If I am doing sewing machine work I normally do that in the daytime but I am constantly getting up and down while doing that. Quilting & hand work gets done in the evening while the tv is on. One way to get more steps is to walk around the house, carry laundry to the bedroom in two arm loads instead of one, if you have steps in your house go up and down a couple extra times for exercise. While waiting for a pot on the stove to boil instead of sitting down walk back and forth in the kitchen and the dining room. Anything to get in some extra steps and not spend it sitting down – anyhow that is what I do. Also when I go shopping I do not park next to the store I park at the end of the lane and walk to the store – that kind of stuff helps. I got in my 10,000+ again yesterday! Two of my readers told me that I can add in house hold chores to the fitbit and things like yoga class or other activities – I have to check that out.
