Sorting and organizing wasn’t what I planned to do on the weekend, but it became necessary as I was looking for the white on white fabric that I was
positive – pretty sure — hoping I had tucked away for the Summer Picnic Dish. It appears I used it for another project. So for now the Summer Picnic Dish is on hold because one thing I have learned for sure is to never, ever buy a white on white fabric online. I have to see and feel them and make sure they’re not that heavily painted-on stuff! And that will teach me to print everything I need for a quilt at once!
While I was looking for that white fabric, I started stacking the quilt tops that are waiting to be quilted. In this picture there are 18 ready to be basted and quilted and three more that are awaiting their final borders. Plus a few UFOs. What’s not in the picture are the three quilts basted and ready to quilt. Yikes! I thought I had maybe 10 or 12 tops in the line-up. Not over 20! The quilt rack is groaning under the weight!
The next step? The next step is to sort through and prioritize the UFOs. Not that that’s going to stop me from starting something new – I’m sure it won’t. Perhaps I need a quilting intervention! And what am I going to work on now? Probably some batik sunflowers or perhaps more Stormy Seas blocks.
While I was organizing and stacking things everywhere (and I do mean everywhere, there were even melon/arc combos for the Summer Picnic Dish draped over my sewing machine at one point) Baxter decided that having a snooze on one of my stitching books might be just the thing to do. He stayed there for quite some time, even while there was fabric flying everywhere.
We went for a walk last night after dinner and it was lovely. Mild, not humid and a wonderful breeze. If only it could be like this all year round – no high heat/humidity in the summer and no winter!
“We’ll Miss You, Boo.” They’re all looking at a new bright star in the sky — it’s a kitty star in honour of a friend’s very special kitty, Boo, who passed away yesterday.
