That’s about it. The total of my stitching on the weekend. One lonely harpsichord quilt block. I was so wiped out from the workload last week that even stitching seemed like too much work. I never say that! But that’s how I felt this past weekend. Two or, at the maximum, three more days of this and then I’m taking an extra long weekend.
It pressed in a second. Good thing too, ’cause using an iron was not something I looked forward to — not even with the super lightweight Rowenta travel iron.
This box is anything but pretty, but it serves the purpose. Everything for the harpsichord quilt is in here – a gazillion glassine envelopes, each containing the pieces for anywhere from 6 to 10 blocks, the blocks that have been made to date, the rows that have been joined to date, the gold and the black music fabric in case I need to print more octagons. Want to see a pretty box and some very happy stars? Go to Barb at Just Sayin’ Sew‘s blog post here. She has a very cheerful party box for some super pretty stars.
I clearly didn’t get caught up on anything on the weekend. No replying to comments, no leaving comments, no talking to friends, no catching up on e-mail. I figure it’s going to take me at least a couple of days to rest up after this project is finished for work but by the time next weekend rolls around I expect to be back to normal.
Baxter seems to think he’s the resident artist. A self-portrait, no less!
After all that drawing, he was upside down napping. I wish I was upside down napping!
