Busy quilters with distracted minds!
Doesn’t this describe the majority of us to a T? Or to a Q?
I came home from Oak Ridge, Tennessee and emptied my suitcase into the laundry. I didn’t think anything about it, I just sorted it as I usually do --- pants in one load, colors in another, whites in a third ----
This morning I went to get the laundry out of the dryer to pack my suitcase for my trip to Lexington Park, MD this morning and….
OH Geeze. I forgot to check my pockets!
My jeans had a whole bobbin of red thread that I was using to sew on a binding. Didn’t want to leave the red thread behind, so I stuck it in my pocket! What a MESS!
AUUGHH! A perfectly tangled waste of a perfectly good bobbin full of thread! This mess looks like it’s ready for the tie dye bath!
And yeah, my mind was wondering if I should save this thread tangle for Karen who does art quilts..could she use it for the hair on one of her portrait quilts? OH get real! I had to get packed and get on the road, no time for distraction here! I made quick work of the big kitchen shears. Okay, not so quick. Some of that thread was wrapped rather tight!
The car is packed, I’m ready to roll! I love driving up through Virginia, it should be such a pretty day! Temps in Lexington Park, MD should be mid 70’s through the weekend-- NICE!!
I’ve packed a machine just in case I have time to sew…but my main project is to cut and kit up pieces and parts to take with me next Wednesday for the trip I’m taking to Rangeley, Maine! Maine in October! I’m teaching at a retreat and you know my big request when I teach at retreats ---- as soon as class is over for the day I GET TO SEW TOO!! So…there will be loads of pieces cut this weekend in Maryland, so I can pack them back into my suitcase Tuesday night so I can fly off on Wednesday.
Just made the last run to the car with the bin of fabric scraps I’m taking…..Uhoh…look who wants to go too!
Awwww, Sadie, honey…you can’t come this time! ((It cracks me up how she loves to sit ON the seat just like a people person!!)) I’ll see you soon, sweet girl….hold down the fort while I’m gone, wontcha?
