Lazy Saturday



I sewed today! It wasn't the giterdun, but at least I turned on the Bernina and shoved some fabric through it!
This was a Quilts in a Bag kit that I bought two or three years ago at the Glendale Quilt Show. The quilt is big -- just for perspective, those blue floral blocks are 10" finished. Talk about an easy quilt to sew together! But I'm going to put it all back in its tub and put it away for another day to assemble.
It's so much fun to lay a quilt out here. Just when I'd get it all in place, Daisy would come tearing across it and scatter the blocks everywhere. It was hilarious because she usually doesn't tear around the house. She pokes along. I guess because Mommy was down on the floor, that made it fair game. LOL
I'm going right now to bring the giterdun downstairs and figure out where I left off. My goal was to get it done in May. Doesn't look like that will happen, so my new goal is June 15th. We'll see.
I wasn't going to clean house this weekend, but I have an "inspection" on Tuesday, whatever that means. I bought my first house when I was 21, so this renting thing and having people in my house while I'm not here is new to me. I think it has something to do with the new A/C and furnace they put in a couple of weeks ago. Now, I know they're not looking to see whether I have dusty end tables, but I'd better spiffy up the joint anyway.
I took a nap a while ago. It felt good, but I feel a bit punchy now. Maybe I should have just stayed in bed. I slept really well last night, but I guess my body needed more.
Spaghetti tomorrow? Yeah, that sounds good - and I can make enough for leftovers!
I picked up three movies this week. I really loved one of them, liked one okay, and one of them I couldn't even finish. I'll give it another go tomorrow while I'm sewing.
Gratitudes:
~ Wash day tomorrow! I'm going to unpack those last two boxes of clothes in the garage and either wash them or toss them.
~ Listening to some little kids on the walking path giggling - and giggling and giggling. I wonder what was so funny.
~ Doing online window shopping today and nothing appealed to me. That's VERY good!
~ Daisy sleeps 18 hours a day, whether I'm home or not. The slug!

It must've been fun to work on something that worked up so quickly. That darned giterdun quilt .. how happy will you bet to get that thing finished? I'm with Daisy -- sleeping 18 hours a day sounds heavenly right now. Glad you got a good night's sleep last night AND a nap today!

I love the colors in this quilt. Definitely looks like a quilt fit for a picnic. You're like me... juggling the work and the quilting-- don't you just love 3-day weekends....

Sounds like you're having a good long weekend Vicky. That quilt looks lovely. A nap in the middle of the day - how decadent and good for you!

Giterdun?! What's that?? I thought the entire point was to work on each quilt for eons and eons......I see I've been approaching this all wrong!I have 3 lousy UFO's left and I seem to do anything other than working on them!

Darlene said...

Oh, I love it, Vicky! It's my favorite colors! "Dibbies" LOL Is it for ME, you're finally making MY quilt. AW, thank you! teehee!

I love the colors. The red squares really pull out the red in other pieces. Don't you love holiday weekends?

Kim said...

Isn't it nice to find some quilting time? I need to know though--what movie did you think was really good? I get tired of renting bad movies! LOL!

Connie said...

Well ALL sewing time counts whether it's tedious or giterdun. The quilt you're working on looks like one you can move right along with, my kind of sewing. Great colors!

My DH and I watched Riding in Cars with Boys (Drew Barrymore) this week - and it was fun. I watched another movie another night -not as good! It was fun to watch a few movies - I had bought these movies in March and just got around to watching them!

And any little bit of sewing COUNTS! Your quilt makes good use of a big print!

Cheers!
