Another BORING post, LOL . . . . Fall has arrived here in Chicago after a late start. Today it's nice and cool and slightly wet outside so that means I'm likely to be sewing. Or making soup. The kind of quiet, lazy day I love.
There's nothing pressing on the homefront agenda. What should I do today?
The sewing desk is relatively clean for a change. Makes it easier to work on those fussy blocks you saw in my last post.
The desk gets cluttered up pretty fast. When it's clean I'm much more productive and can see the tiny paper pieces.
Paper piecing is going well - finally.
All I need is a clean desk and some quiet and I'll be happy and productive. Living outside but still near Chicago sometimes means traffic and noise, dogs barking. Every time a police siren goes off after some speeder, the dog mimics it by howling back. Other dogs on the block chime in. Her favorite spot when I'm sewing? Right next to me, as close as she can get. To make sure I can hear the howling up close I guess. She does an awesome impression of a police siren and I always laugh but, much as I love her, it gets annoying pretty fast.
Who me? Annoying??
I finished this appliqued DJ block yesterday after working on it for two days. (Applique's not my thing but I'm getting so much better the more I work on these tiny blocks.) I was so proud I wanted to frame it. But then I decided if I did that I'd have to make ANOTHER one to put in my Jane quilt. THAT'S not happening, ha ha.
But maybe I'll play around with some wool instead.
The day is young. Who knows what stitching marvels will occur?
