so I brewed a nice strong pot of coffee and put on a Diana Krall CD called, "The Look of Love" (her versions of Cry Me a River and Dancing in the Dark are awesome). I looked over at the dining room table at the fabric all laid out for the Snapshot quilt backing and decided to go for it. I found myself getting seriously bummed yesterday - sewing withdrawal. I did watch three movies, including "All The President's Men" which I had never seen. Attempting to put together the backing made sense because I didn't have to do any serious cutting - I had cut all the pieces before my surgery. It felt so good to sit down at the sewing machine, and check out how well the pieced center strip matched up - it's a miracle! It needs to be pressed, but I can't lift the iron yet with my right hand, and am seriously clutzy using my left (that's why any rotary cutting and pressing have to wait - it's just not worth the risk - lol)
My next project is to correct the set up of my camera date - I must have am & pm mixed up because I noticed that the camera has yesterday's date in the morning and the correct date in the afternoon. Here is a picture I took a couple days ago - the orchids are in bloom.
I almost forgot...I finished the binding on the Strip Tube Quilt too...see?
It is a large queen size quilt that was done completely in batiks and quilted in a swirly pattern. Here's a close up of the quilting - complete with a stray thread that needs to be pulled off *sigh*.
