Miss E and I finished up her quilt project with the new Babylock. She had asked my friend Suzi to quilt it, and she did a marvelous job as always. Miss E was so very nervous about sewing on the binding, so I took pity on her, and in my quest to do the UFO clean up, I stitched it on, with her sewing machine, while she watched.
Then I took the famous trip to Chicago on the train. I think I've recovered from that now. Hopefully.
But at least the color is a bit more accurate.
It was fun to sew but hard to iron. It seems I sprained my right thumb while getting myself organized in the basement on Friday night. I spent the weekend putting ice on it and rubbing it with Aspircreme and saying "ouch" every ten seconds. Do you know how many times you use your thumbs for things? Picking up scissors, opening the fridge, writing, typing... in fact this blog post is causing a few ouches right now.
Time to go. Sew on...
