I'm ready for football
I don't mean that I'm ready for football season to start. I was ready for that in June. I mean that I'm ready to spend hours in front of the TV and, hopefully, not waste too much of that time.
I have my 4 applique borders glue basted and ready for hand stitching!
The rest of the blocks, spare parts, white and green fabric, templates and everything else is neatly packed away for.......whenever I get the borders done.
Because I don't know how long that will be I even packed away the bias tape maker so that I won't get confused and use the wrong size when I move to the outer border.
I have a smaller box with the quilt top center, 3 of the borders and lots of floss. The purple folder is where I'll keep the border that I'm working on.
Today I'm teaching fabric dyeing at Visual Arts and I already know that I have one trouble maker student so I might need a little hand stitching tonight to unwind.

I don't really watch football but I am so ready for the season to start as it brings the cooler weather eventually with it!!

It is going to be sew nice. I really must cultivate a sit and stitch habit and ditch the sit and read habit. Good for you!

Oh egads. I'm so sorry! You were expecting a troublemaker and you got a model student instead. Next time I'll send Molly.

Always so organized. I've been doing a lot of hand sewing watching the Olympics.

You are so organized! That quilt is going to be so pretty and vintage looking.
