it’s 2:30pm, do you know where your snow shovel is?
me neither, so i am really glad that i:
- am already home
- don’t have a driveway
obviously i am doing what any sane sewasaurus rex would do in the onset of a blizzard, and that is stacking up DVDs next to my sewing machine so i can leave that chair as infrequently as possible.
this is actually really good for me, because, contra my best plans for the weekend, i am now forced to finish up some WIPs instead of diving into this new pile of knits i overindulged on this week at mood.
instead, i’ll focus on finishing up my V8601, my drape drape blouse, and my two colette cinnamons. i’ve got some focusing to do, but even if i am tempted away from the machine, i still have this to work on:
yesterday i went WAAAAY out of my wheelhouse and took my first quilting class. i could tell that the women in this group felt the same way about the quilting community that we sewasaurus rexi feel about ours: grateful. i have to admit in all honesty, though, that i felt truly out of my element. the ladies could not have been more welcoming but i felt similarly to how george bernard shaw must have felt when he opined that brits and americans are two nations divided by a common language!
i don’t know if i will be returning to my LQS any time soon but i was glad i had taken a chance to learn a new technique and keep working on my goal of a modern grandmother’s garden quilt for this year.
