Yesterday felt like a really long day after everything there was to be done.
You know, the in-house maid service, landscape and gardening service, laundry service, the baking and dinner service, etc. that I run around here. Just another day you know. But even after all that non stop fun filled action, there was still more to be done. I know, some would think what else would there be to do. Well, some very important work I must say.
Putting the quilt together!
First the backing had to be laid out just right.
Then of course the batting and the top.
Then there was the ever important pinning in just the right places so that the masterpiece isn't totally screwed up. Luckily I had some very enthusiastic helpers with this.
Next was trying to get one self up off the floor to admire all 300 and something pins that were just added to hold everything together, and not being able to stand straight for a few minutes. Man did I feel old. It felt like my spine was just waiting to jump out and run off in hopes of never, ever doing that again. Geez!
Then it was on to the ever important rolling the work of art up in order to attempt to do the ever important quilting with the machine.
I am told that it is very doable, even with this piece of work hanging over both edges of the dining room table. We will see. The sewing machine will surely be brought up and placed on the table because there is no way the machine work will be attempted downstairs on the 'desk of doom' right now. Too much going on there.
Wish us all a lot of luck today!
One way or another I will get this done!
