I WILL sew today. I WILL sew today. I WILL sew today. After a few days of dawdling and excuse-making and just generally not-wanting-to, I decided this morning that I would sew! Not, of course, those items that are glaring at me: the ninth block of Birds of a Feather, the three Jo's Scrappy
Stars blocks, the Scrapbag Explosion, and on and on. But just something I was in the mood to sew--so there, Sewing Room! I wanted to contribute a couple of blocks to the Leukemia quilts so I used the Double Windmills directions in one of Billie Lauder's wonderful booklets. And I wanted to bind the Boo quilt to hang on the porch. I used the Boo quilt to practice free-motion quilting and I really hope you can't see it all that well!!! I haven't practiced for several weeks and it showed. I have decided that FMQ is something I need to do every single day (for the rest of my life, probably!!!) Today was another one of those
sit-around-and-wait-on-repairpersons-days so I needed projects that I could do easily. This time it was the window-replacement guy. Couldn't have been nicer! One of our tall windows lost its vapor lock. I had never heard of such a thing, but apparently it is fairly common. It will have to be replaced. I want to get it done soon before chillier weather sets in. Right now in KC it is 69 degrees, sunny with a light breeze--just a perfect day. But as fellow Missourians know, just wait 15 minutes!!!
