I went and played pickleball this morning and ended up playing for FOUR hours! Then I went to brunch with some my fellow players. It was after 3:30 when I got home. My dogs were pretty disappointed with my behavior.
They felt a little better when I took them out for a four-mile walk before dinner,
I hit my sewing room after a quick and light dinner and fixed the backing that was too small. I’m going to take it to my long arm quilter tomorrow.
If I hate making quilt backings, imagine how much I hated making the same damned one for a second time! But I like the addition of the strip of the striped fabric.
I like how the half circles and stripes play together and make it look like the stripes arch and turn and go back down the line of stripes.
I was all ready to lay down on the sofa when I was done with this backing and when I looked at my watch it was only 8:30!!! So much evening left to get some stuff done!
So I decided to start working on finishing up The Other 16 Patch quilt top that’s been sitting on my design wall. I managed to get all four rows sewn together, and that’s where I stopped.
With those great big blocks the rows go together really fast.
I’ll sew the horizontal seams tomorrow and then maybe get the borders on. I’m trying to force myself to finish this up before I start sewing on the orange and pink version.
I am going to go play pickleball tomorrow morning… if I can find a game. It’s my small way of celebrating a day off.
