Let's see if we can fix that over the course of the next 7 days...
SUNDAY - I visited with my friend Joanna and turned the heel (using the Criminally Mindless Heel by Kath Baer found in As the Heel Turns by Hilary Latimer) on my 2nd Halloween Sock:
MONDAY - Bellinis for breakfast - or something like that. Raising a toast to our friend Kath, who passed away over the weekend:
TUESDAY - Today, renovations began on My Purple Palace mini quilt, as things were looking a little sparse:
I also did some sewing and squaring up for my niece's wedding quilt...
... Before my machine spit a piece of metal at me... AGAIN!!! The last time was quite a number of years ago:
Tonight was my Evening Quilt Bee's (now) monthly Zoom meeting and 7 quilters joined in this time:
WEDNESDAY - A variety of tasks kept me busy this morning. These included grocery processing and writing a few upcoming blog posts. After lunch, I faced the giant (so to speak.)
When neighbors wave, I wave back. When quilt borders wave, it's time to employ another of the tricks of the trade. You see, there were a few "wrinkles" to iron out of the quilt on the longarm. That meant that it was time to pull out my small iron and my can of Magic Sizing to take up a bit of the slack:
Now, I'm ready for (what I hope will be) the final quilting session, once this week's Zoom session with LeeAnna is done. Here we are:
THURSDAY - ZoomBEE met this morning. The following twelve quilters were in attendance:
After the meeting, I mentioned to LeeAnna that today's meeting included a lot of heartache and a little bit of quilting. Some weeks are like that, aren't they?
Later in the day, I did another round of the Starch Treatment on the quilt currently on the rails of the longarm:
Only TWO ripples remain between me and the last few rows of quilting on this gorgeous quilt! (Look, RSC Quilters... PURPLE!!)
FRIDAY - It was ZoomKNIT day! These six friends joined in to chat and knit the morning away:
This afternoon, I released a new Design Floor Friday post. If you liked my IMPROV Adventure from the beginning of the month, you might like to see the home improvements that have been made to the wall hanging that I called My PURPLE Palace. Here's a preview:
