I had another wonderful weekend of sewing. I have a three day weekend although sometimes one of the days gets eaten up with other things. I started my sewing on Friday. My goal for the day was to get as much of Postcards from Sweden done as possible. Here's where I was on Saturday morning. About to attach rows 7 and 8 to the quilt top.
I wasn't going to continue on Saturday but I was on such a roll I just kept on going. I eventually had to stop because I got a pain in my right hip and butt from pressing down the foot pedal and a sore lower back from cutting ( I know I should have used the table risers).
I switched to plan B.( this was actually plan A for Saturday but I put it on the back burner to keep working on Postcard). I pieced the backing for Eli's Whale quilt and then ironed the backing and the quilt top and found the batting. My new plan was to pin baste the quilt top before heading out to meditation at around 10:00am.
After a good nights sleep I got up early with the cat and started working on the quilt. I had to iron the batting because it was so creased. I am not a good estimator of how much time it takes to do things. This is a really small quilt and I'm happy to say that I got all those pins through the layers in about an hour. It was a wonderful hour. It was very quiet in the house as Dwight had not gotten up yet and I got into a really nice rhythm with the pinning.
I had lots of time to spare before leaving for meditation. I was going to work on the computer but Dwight was watching a soccer game on it so I spent some time fooling around with the ipad. I recently discovered that I can take selfies with the ipad. I pushed the little icon by mistake one day. I know I am such a luddite. It's hard to get them to look o.k. though. Has anyone invented a selfie stick for an ipad yet? Here's the best one.
Those are rows 9,10 and 11 on the wall behind me. You mostly get to see this because you can see how happy I am. I'm not sure if its because I got lots of sewing done, or because the sun has been shining most days, or because I'm getting healthier.
