|Tuning Fork 17, detail|
Monday, I sewed the last few rows together and made a back. Tuesday and Wednesday I quilted it, in a mauvey gray thread that went perfectly with the grayed mauves I'd used in the quilt. I had another quilt to quilt, Big Figure #7, so before lunch on Wednesday I made a back for it. I was feeling very cheerful. Brian left for Houston on Wednesday morning, and I had two days to sew. No cooking, no getting up at 6 am (unless I felt like it), my time was entirely my own. I had a list of studio tasks I wished to get done. I came down from the studio for lunch Wednesday, and the whole plan fell apart.
I got sick. I've spent the last day and a half on the couch. What a waste of a couple of good sewing days.
I feel slight better tonight (Thursday). I'm hoping the worst is past. We'll see.
One last picture, a totally new experience for me, I took a young friend to a ceramic place a couple of weeks ago. We painted bowls. I loved it, and I'm now wondering if I need to have a young adult along to justify going. Would it be odd to turn up by myself? I love my bowl. Here it is filled with udon soup with fried tofu.
I'm linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday, Richard and Tanya's Quilts Link a Finish Friday and Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday. Go see all the wonderful work there!
