o.k. to venture out, which is a possibility, my Weather Pixie(in a bikini yet!) is telling me it's 97 degrees out there. Now that might be right, or it might not. My nearest weather reporting station is Mpls-St.Paul, and generally the metro has higher temps due to the amount of pavement and building mass.
Either way, when I stuck my nose outside, and sidetracked a very eager Ebby, it was HOT!
So I'm disgruntled today. I've done some sewing, some cleaning, some napping and a whole lot of sitting under that quilted finished from yesterday. Yes, I know, I spoke prematurely, it still needed binding. I got that cut and sewn on this a.m. and am on the 3rd side. I've decided to add a 4" border, in an off black to the strip twist. It will then jump from 43" X 57" to 51" X 65", and I'm going to use a plaid flannel backing. I have some 60" flannel shirting I'd like to see used up and gone. Probably will be a snuggle quilt for one of the grandsons.
I found and sorted out bigger scraps of christmas fabric, so I can begin cutting some assorted squares and triangles for more blocks. I sure have alot of christmas scraps! I'm not in any hurry with my orphans, but I'll keep picking away at it..*VBG*
I got a really sweet email from a gal in eastern WI, who follows my blog(thank you very much K) and sent me some thumbnails of fabrics that might work with my vintage 9 patches. I'll have to see if I can 'fiddle' them over here to the blog, from the email. I have a feeling she's right on the money with them, and I actually like the look of nearly all of them. In the blue range, and not as washed out as the blue the clerk was trying to sell me. And a good price to boot, from Connecting Threads. I'll see what I can do for tomorrow. Would be great to get the fabric and get them together.
In the meantime, while digging in the Christmas stuff, I found anothert quilt top(Christmas) that I added to the pile to practice on with my machine quilting. I'm feeling better, more like myself and the nausea seems to have passed. I was able to eat some today, and that seemed good. I'm hitting fresh fruit mostly, I think the added liquid(watermelon) will help the process. Seems odd to me that what was happening didn't trigger a massive asthma episode, and that would have been preferable. I would have know to get the heck out of there. From now on, I'll pay attention to the beginnings of queasy stomach. I don't honestly know if anyone would have checked if they hadn't seen or heard from me on Thursday or Friday. If the sleeping has turned into unconsciousness. I'm feeling pretty darn lucky...*VBS*
