Here’s what a couple of hours can do.
It’s really fun to just stitch while following your nose.
I also got about an hour of book club reading in, I will not be the one who hasn’t finished the book!
But I also got some real work done. I’ve promised to donate a quilt to the Monona Library for an upcoming fundraiser*.
Do you recognize the denim blocks? It’s the full catastrophe quilt that has been haunting me with it’s unfinished nature. Well, I found it a home. Not all of it, mind you, but a fair amount.
One of the things I loved about it originally was how the strips all went in the same direction but now I’m like, meh.
So, I pulled some of the strips apart
And added in a couple of panels that had different orientations.
It still needs something.
My pointless panel will have to wait. I feel a little like a Victorian lady with my embroidery project waiting for me to work on it in the evenings. Like a Victorian lady who works on her projects while watching Mad Men.
*Which, by the way, you should really go to. We’ll have a Dean Martin impersonator and cupcakes. What could be better?
