I have had it in my head all day that it is Friday, but it is one of the good things I am wrong about! Though most people long for and look forward to Friday, I am much the opposite. Monday is much more appealing. The busyness of the weekend is over, and the kids are back to school.
It's been a busy week. Tomorrow will be no different. Frantic at times trying to finish (OK, that is a huge stretch, but I do need to get the quilting to a suitable stopping point either tomorrow or Monday so that the quilt can come off the frame). This means that there are no large unquilted areas, and any area I have marked is stitched, as I will be removing all of the blue pen. I don't want to leave it on the quilt for the next 3 months. I anticipate getting back to finishing the quilt in September. Today marks day 9 of quilting on the silk quilt. My mind really needs to work on something different. Fifty hours of staring at the same quilt is enough. Today I started on the teeny-tiny fillers. Three of the four corners are just about done (if you don't count the part I have to rip out!...Frog, as the quilters say. I am not in the least bit thrilled that I have to rip out fourteen stitches to the inch silk thread, on silk fabric. Seems a tad risky. Foolish might be a better word. I will look carefully from further than 6" when I get it off the frame and see if it is really necessary, though I suspect I already know that answer.
