I am in between projects. I finished hand quilting the quilt I was working on Monday. I passed it off to Leigh Ann to put on a fancy binding. She has taught classes on piped bindings and I thought it was in much better hands with her doing it. A fancy binding for probably the fanciest quilt I will ever do. (Sorry for this old song and dance - but no pictures until a later date).
So what to do??? It looks like our NEW fabric that we will show at Fall International Quilt Market will arrive on my doorstep next week. (I promise some sneak previews of those soon). There might be a few days to a week or down time. What to do? Well, for one thing, I took a long walk with Gibby this morning and I had no "to-do" list running through my head while out walking. That was nice. There could have been a "to-do" list, but it would consist of cleaning and washing stuff and therefore I quickly vetoed it. The walk was a bit crisp this morning and that was certainly welcome. My mind wandered. I think that is good. It seems scientists agree.
Different things occurred to me. I could play hooky and go to a ballgame. Maybe a Farmer's Market excursion and some homemade marinara sauce. Maybe just sneak off to the movies and have popcorn for dinner. Or I could just start another quilt.
So, with nothing pressing on my mind - I pressed scraps. Upturning the scrap bin, I picked out all the lights or "shirtings" as I call them (even if they aren't shirtings in the strict sense) and pressed. Ah, the smell of a hot iron, cold fabric and some lovely scented spray starch. (Or spray starch alternative as Mary Ellen call's it)Here is my pile of pressed shirtingsI'll spend the rest of the day cutting while listening the the ballgame in the background. Multi-tasking, again.
