It was an afternoon/evening of helpers.
It was a job reminiscent of “Twister” on the floor with friends in my teens.
It was not so funny in my 50s! LOL!
I have a design wall. It is full of other stuff.
If I don’t pin to the design wall, stuff can fall off with the opening and shutting of a nearby door –so pins and a bazillion pieces is just not so fun, and I thought this would be an easy floor job, laid out, picked up in order and sewn. THINK AGAIN!
Today my thighs ache – my hind-end hurts! And I’m attributing this as ALL GOOD, using muscles that haven’t been used in a while.
“Use it or lose it!” They say ---and as long as I can get down and get up, I’ll keep getting down and getting up so I don’t lose it before my time.
However, my knees are betraying me, and that’s something I didn’t think would happen as I’ve always remembered Newton's first law of motion - sometimes referred to as the law of inertia.
"An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force." My knees are my unbalanced force!

So this is where I’m at so far:
Sashings are sewn and laid into place. Cornerstones are next.
Hmmm..on point is nice too! No, don’t even think about it!
And then today I’ll start webbing the whole thing together. I need it to be off the floor before a certain shipment arrives.
We’ve been watching the tracking for my Yellow Freight shipment of Essential Triangle Tools. They have reached Indianapolis!! Getting closer!
This reminds me of the rendition of Music Man we did in High School:
“Oh ho, the Wells Fargo Wagon is a comin’ down the street, oh please let it be FOR ME!!”
They should be here by tomorrow evening, as long as weather doesn't cause any delays. I’ll have Friday up until post office closing time to get what we can out the door.
I'm working on our En Provence mystery part 5 so it is ready to go live when it needs to!
Today’s plan is to do all of the grocery shopping for Christmas, store it here in the basement fridge (what needs to be refrigerated) and then head to the cabin for our family Christmas, arriving about the same time Jason and Jenny arrive from South Carolina.
But today – this top is getting webbed and OFF MY FLOOR!
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
I love this string pieced hexagon circa 1940 shared by Siobhan.
May this season of giving spill over into the next season and on and on!!
Have a great Wednesday, everyone!
