I left off on Saturday night, hoping to have a quilt top. Alas, it wasn't meant to be.
I was 3 seams away from being finished (I did do some more sewing after taking the above picture). But I was starting to make mistakes, so I made myself stop and go to bed.
Sunday was busy with church, laundry - including putting it away. Kinda rare for me to get to that right away. No sewing that day.
Monday was mostly baking. I had to clean the kitchen first, then I started on some whole wheat bread. I'm still so appreciative of the grain grinder my mom generously gave me!
You can see the bread rising. As it was actually baking, I took time to finish sewing the Trip Around the World into a top.
For dinner we had curry chicken and brown rice. First time I ever used curry in cooking.
I took a bite and at first I was like "mmm... this isn't too spic-- MILK! GIMME MILK!" What can I say... I'm a wimp. ;) But yes, it's a meal that we'll be seeing again in our future. Easy, flavorful, healthy. I'll just make sure there's plenty of milk on hand.
Tuesday I sewed the borders on TATW, put some pork in the crockpot and watch a woman win the Biggest Loser for the first time. :)
Today I cleaned and vacuumed the living room floor so I could pin the quilt.
I'm pleased with the results, things are moving a long at a good pace. I did have to open a new box of safety pins. Probably could have gotten away with pinning every other square. Pinning took about 45 minutes in all. A little longer than the time it takes to load a flat quilt onto a long arm machine.
Bah. I shouldn't day dream about having a long arm, we don't have the ROOM. Or the money. :P But the room is the bigger factor right now.
My goal is to get this quilted and bound by Sunday! :)
