I have procrastinated myself into quite the crafty corner. I told my coworker I would have the finished quilt to him by the end of September. Which would be Sunday. However I have not even started quilting it yet. I did go to clean and oil it this weekend only to discover I have misplaced my brush for cleaning my machine. I think I may have accidentally thrown it away. I looked at a couple stores over the weekend that I happened to be visiting but nothing I thought would work well was there, so I just ordered a package of them and they arrived today. SO after dinner I cleaned and oiled the machine, loaded my new thread and prewound bobbins that I ordered specifically for this project and tried them out on my practice sandwich. Tension was fine so I proceeded to load the backing onto the frame. That took the rest of the evening. I don’t want to start quilting it til Saturday, so I’ll probably just ignore it until then. He’ll get it next week, I think that will be fine.
Meanwhile I did cut all the pieces for one of the first blocks for the Mystery Quilt and am maybe a third of the way through one block. So I’m already behind with that, but I’m not going to sweat that. I don’t care if I finish with everyone else. The cutting really did my wrist in. I’m going to have to bite the bullet and get myself an accuquilt sooner rather than later. So I’m planning to take the commission money from this quilt (he already paid me for the materials) and put that toward the accuquilt go. Meanwhile I think I need to hit the drugstore tomorrow for a wrist brace.
We seem to actually be getting autumn almost on time, so that’s a good thing! WE actually shut the ac off all day today and the house is perfectly comfortable. Yay autumn!
Stay crafty and I will talk to y’all next week!
