A hodge-podge of miscellany

I think we have a winner! Top right layout is the one I hate least for my polaroid blocks. I will layout all the blocks to finalize it before sewing.


Prepping a “tips and tricks” mini blurb on thread weights for guild meeting tomorrow night.


Far left spools are 12wt. I spaced out my tape strip weirdly.

And this is also what’s going on. Scheduling time on my long arm continues to be challenging but I’ve got this half done now. #myfirstpantograph


And that’s the kind of day it’s been!


Day 302

Popsicles make a wonderful dessert for kids, and are wonderful time savers for grown-ups. While the kids were eating/licking/anthropomorphizing their popsicles I washed the dishes. That meant the kitchen was clean before bed time so I had the sewing machine set up by 7:45!

I’m working on a secret project for a friend so I can’t show you pictures but I did do some quilting tonight. Yay.

I basted the quilt this afternoon on my design wall instead of the floor. Much easier on the knees for sure.

This is the back of the quilt here. I wanted to choose my thread when I had good light this afternoon so I popped out my thread drawer and put it on my stove so that I didn’t have to walk back and forth.


Yep, that’s all the thread I have.
