I had a pretty productive day. I set up a quilting station in my sewing room, placing my cabinet-machine in front of my cutting table, and snugging the ironing board up near my left elbow, all for supporting the weight of the quilt.
I machine-quilted the 'bones' of the brown quilt, going down in the ditch of all the long, light-colored sashing strips. Now I'm doing some cross-seams.
I have a stencil that I think I am going to use on the wide strips, but it involves lots of twisting and turning to do with the walking foot, so I'll take it a bit at a time. I think I'm going to like the finished look.
Today's weather started out cloudy and cool, but by mid-afternoon, it was 74 degrees and sunny with very little wind. My baby girl turned 36 years old today. I got to say 'happy birthday' over the phone, but my voice is so weird that she couldn't really hear much else. That makes me sad. But she had a good day and that makes me happy.
I even have a couple of Hyacinth blooming. Welcome, welcome little blooms, so beautifully adorned by our heavenly Father.
