In fact it was a great day. As I puddled about prepping the fifth and final block for my Christmas story quilt, my back loosened up beautifully. In fact, it felt so good I did all of the blanket stitch and even put the pieces together.
Still feeling good after that I got on and joined all of the blocks together.
All of Junes Christmas Story Quilt sewing achieved in one morning!
That felt really good.
There were one or two moments when I regretted my colour choices.
There isn't much of that blue on blue dot left!
There is a narrow plain border, then a wider appliqué border to go. I'll wait for Debbie to catch up with me, then consult with her about how to break those down into monthly slices.
I spent the rest of the day with Sleepy, I'm racing through the current page.
It feels good to see progress again.
On another good note...
I had moaned to himself on more than one occasion that the overhead light in this room of mine isn't very bright. Well it was a childs bedroom, so that was expected.
Up he climbed one day and took the cover off.
We and the previous owners are so lucky there hasn't been a fire.
It was a mess of melted plastic and exposed cables!
With old style bulbs pulling far too much power through modern fixtures.
Tony arranged a whole new light for me.
He even chose it himself.
Apparently it matches all the thready bits on the carpet.
I think I need to get the vacuum in here.
Oh, yes. It's much brighter.
