Last Sunday Don helped me stretch this quilt and today I finally started quilting it. I admired it every day, but realized there were other things that took priority. I spent three bobbins worth of thread. If I do three bobbins a day, maybe by this time next week I’ll be sewing on the binding.
A gorgeous weekend found temperatures even reaching 41 degrees today. It’s sleeting right now as the temps are dipping back down in the 30’s. It’s definitely the price you pay for warmer weather. Don took Ransom and I on a major snow shoeing expeditions and were amazed at the different animals leaving their tracks in the snow. I guess everyone is getting a little tired of being tucked away from the cold.
I had nine kids in Sunday school including four new little ones. It made a week’s worth of preparations worth it when I heard a little boy tell his Mom, “I had so much fun. I’m so glad I came…”. I never regret teaching Sunday School.
I finished the last of the appliqué on the last block of the Primitive garden. I’m doing the embroidery work—maybe a picture tomorrow. The Capricorn quilts BOM block is posted and I want to get that posted before I go to sleep tonight.
There was enough quilting going on today that I should have great dreams tonight.
