Yesterday was a really busy day but I feel like I didn't really accomplish much of anything tangible. I did some laundry, made some bread and delivered some food to the local food pantry.
I probably spent most of my time timing my longarm. I'm not good at doing that so it usually takes me a few (or 10) tries. I think I have it but I wasn't in the mood to load a quilt and give it a go.
I packed up a box of soap for a local charity.
I've made a little progress on the next set of pieces for Red Sunset but, honestly, this project has been mostly ignored the past few days.
Yesterday, I mentioned that I was going to start a hexagon sweater with Lion Brand Jeans yarn. This is the third start with this yarn. I really like it a lot but it's difficult to see the stitches in this dark, speckled yarn! I think this pattern is going to work out just fine. There are about 500 different video tutorials and patterns for hexagon sweaters but I've settled on this one. I like the cuffs and edging that she designed and her video tutorial is really thorough. If I can't get this yarn to work for me in this pattern I will give up and donate the yarn to someone else! I really should have picked a lighter color of this yarn.
During my meal breaks I'm reading up on my training for working the election polls next month. I had training Tuesday afternoon and this is out homework. I really enjoy working the polls but it's a really long day.
So I guess I've been pretty busy but today and tomorrow I'll be at sewing days with my quilt club. If I talk less and sew more I might get another veterans quilt top done!
