(Post written Sunday. Blog wouldn’t let me add photos so posted Monday)
I have no idea where today went. But I have a sneaking hunch it had to do with way too much time spent watching a live stream of a pickleball tournament. Oh well. It seemed like something I should do at the time.
I slept way too late this morning. I think I hit the snooze button at least five times. My poor dogs kept gettin more and more anxious. They know that alarm means we should get up.
So after a good breakfast, I plopped my ass down on the sofa and watched a couple hours of pickleball. After that, I decided Bender and Rico… and I… needed a nice walk. So I put on a baseball cap and a rain coat, grabbed some poop bags, tissues and my dogs and headed out. We walked almost five miles. There was a light rain with us most of the time and it was a bit blustery.
When we got home I watched a little more pickleball and puttered around the house a little, then grabbed an early dinner.
After dinner I thought I should get into my sewing room and be little bit productive, but I still couldn’t make myself dig in on that bag lining. So I pulled out the strip tubes I made last night and cut them up.
I made four more trip blocks.
The makes a total of 15 blocks.
There are duplicate strip sets all cut and ready to assemble for each of these blocks. So that’s a total of 30 blocks. I need 42 for this quilt top, so I’ll need to sew 6 more strip sets. Then I’ll have to assemble all those duplicate blocks.
I like this more and more as I add blocks and more pattern emerges. It gets less chaotic with each block I add. I’m a little surprised that this feels so dark from a distance. I thought there was enough color to brighten it up a little
But when you look close, there’s tons of color in there! Check out this eye candy!
Rico stuck close to me for a good part of today as I was lazy on the sofa. It’s really unusual for him to snuggle up next to me.
He slept here for about a half hour and then was horrified that he was sleeping on top of me and moved to his comfy bed on the floor! What a character.
