Suitcases remain mostly unpacked.
Mail has been slowly gone through.
It doesn’t take much breathing power to sit here and print out invoices and mailing labels, so I was able to feel productive even though laying low.
I took a 3.5 hour nap this afternoon after lunch!
I never nap that long – I must have needed it.
Obey your body, they say. Sleep is restorative. Sleep when you need to.
I hope I sleep tonight!
It also doesn’t take too much energy to pin a certain long awaiting quilt top into the long arm and load it with a backing and a batting.
And we can just see how one row of quilting looks, can’t we? Not much effort for that at all ---
Besides, sunshiny yellow makes me feel so much better!
And so ---just like that, the Serpentine Web is in the process of being quilted!
Quilting pattern: Woven Wind by Apricot Moon.
Close up – love the texture! Using yellow thread.
It’s almost like Baptist Fans, but not. It’s almost like a basket weave, but not quite – it’s just the right amount of here and there and curve and texture. Perfect.
WILD backing fabric!
I’m not even sure where this came from – but I had yardage enough to do the entire backing in this so that’s a good thing. I haven’t had time to piece many intricate backs lately ---just find a piece and call it good. It’s always great when there is a piece big enough in the stash to do the job.
Thinking this for binding??
There is a lot of green in this top. I didn’t realize it until I loaded it and started the quilting. Lots of grassy yellow-green and that is picked up in the backing fabric, so --- Green I think will do the job.
But first – finish the quilting!
Side Note ---It’s kind of a Doggonit Moment when you realize that the clocks in the basement studio have not been “SPRUNG FORWARD!” And it is indeed, later than you think!
Have a great Thursday Evening, everyone! It’s good to be home!
