I managed to get a little bit done yesterday – another nice day here weather wise – I think early fall has begun – early fall here means daytime temps 75-80 (and usually low humidity) and nighttime in the 50’s mostly – windows open and fresh air arrives!
I got another cluster of flowers and a bird attached to the Postage Stamp border – I was just pinning in place while I was cutting and designing – I will staple later. The bird is partway stitched in place – still need to do the wings and look for a closer color thread to go with it. One more cluster to do after I finish this grouping. I am linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict , Sew Fresh Quilts and Quilt Fabrication and My Quilt Infatuation.
The sewing table is cleaned off – guess that means it is time to mess it up again but I really want to concentrate on the Postage Stamp border so I might just hold off on anything else for a week or so other than quilting.
A little more quilting on Monday night – I notice a crooked line here and there – oh well guess I better go back to using the ruler and forget about eyeballing! Some mentioned that I could find an Ott replacement bulb at JoAnne’s – true – but closest one it is 90 miles away and I’m not driving that far to get one and then possibly they wouldn’t have the right one. I totally forgot I had another Ott light that I can use it is hanging above the cutting table if I really need it I can move it temporally.
Hadn’t shown our outside project in awhile – we are on to cement work, a new long step in place – a few boards had to be taken up while we worked and will be put back down, more cement work still needed and drainage put in – well be working on this for awhile – getting some manual labor exercise in. Mike mixes the cement with the mixer and pours it and then I smooth it out – I think he has the harder part of the job.
