We were out and about this past weekend playing on mopeds. We took part in an endurance race with 46(-ish?) teams of 4 who raced around a track for nearly 4 hours. I am so proud to say my team of boys came in 8th overall and 4th in their class! I am so pleased for them. Here's one out just messing....
Anyway, I played photographer all weekend and didn't stitch one stitch.
We arrived home 2 hours ago and I had a listen to Rhonda's podcast. Rhonda and I had a great time recording it, but this was the first time I could listen. (Thank you all for such kind, warm comments after hearing out interview! You guys are the best!) I heard your kick in the bum, Rhonda. I heard it! You will see that Community Quilt finished sooner rather than later.
I'm spending the night quilting. It's a huge quilt (90x90 ish) so I feel like I am wrestling a whale or walrus or something ridiculous.
I'm quilting basic straight lines so it's easy enough. I think, though, that is why it is taking so long to finish. There's nothing interesting here to keep my brain occupied. Just straight line after straight line...
I am off to quilt, then. (I will show that Rhonda....)
