I have to admit that ever since I got that horrible head cold, I have lacked motivation. I have also lacked time as I got behind with housework and school, so that is what I have been spending most of the past few weeks on.
I had kicked Bernie out of the kitchen and into the bedroom to make room for school work and meals at the table, and of course that didn’t help my sewing motivation. Just thinking about shifting her back and forth.. well, it just didn’t happen.
Yesterday I got Daniel to move her back to the kitchen table for me, and today I started quilting his snowball quilt. I have done all the machine quilting for it now!!!! Yay!!! I decided to try something new and combine machine quilting and tying it. I have never tied a quilt before, so this will be interesting. I will tie a knot in the middle of each of the snowballs.
I went to Spotlight this afternoon to find some yarn to tie with, and managed to find some that I liked in the bargain box. I also got some table cloth fabric from the furnishings section for $3 a meter. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get to sew one up.
Tomorrow is Matt’s birthday. He wants to go to the computer museum nearby where for $6 you can play on all sorts of game consoles for as long as you like. I will take the new block from Gail and stitch while he and Daniel play.
So….. maybe I will get on a roll with Bernie again this weekend…… Oh, and next weekend….. it is Ketchup Weekend. I think I may need to join in on this. I have a LOT of “ketchup-ing” to do!
