I took my machine in for its annual "spa treatment" on Tuesday. My sewing room looks so lonely without it! I can't wait for the phone call to tell me I can pick her up.....
Since I can't sew, I've been preparing some baby quilt tops and backings, and pin-basted one this morning. I thought I had lots of batting, but after a search, I discovered that I only have leftover pieces! I just ordered some more, but I think I'll check out all the bags and see if I can hand stitch some together - at least it will feel like progress!
My southern quilting group begins its weekly get-togethers next Wednesday, so I took some time to organize my binder of "stuff" so I'll be prepared for the first week. People are slowly arriving. I think many waited until after the election, or are waiting until Thanksgiving.
Yesterday we had a visit from a cousin who was only south for 4 days, to visit us and his sister. He plays a mean guitar, so DH and our northern friend played most of the afternoon. I called and invited our friend's wife for dinner, so they could keep playing! It was great to visit and listen to the music, even if it was only for a short time.
Off to hunt for batting pieces!
