Over 6 hours of quilting yesterday…apparently staying in one’s pajamas all day is good for getting work done. I even graded yet another assignment. Piece o’ cake!
Well, it wasn’t a piece o’ cake when I started yesterday. I had a thread breakage, thought I cleaned it all up, rethreaded, and then got these nests over and over again. There was a lot of yelling and usage of inappropriate words. Loudly. Unfortunately, that never really solves a thread nest issue…
The newer machines are harder to get at the innards, but my machine guy showed me one access point. Ah HA! There’s the bitch that’s fucking me over.
No real problems after that? Well. Of course. I have to say, I suck at just sitting and quilting. My brain goes kablooey. So I had to get up and do other stuff. Unlike this cat, who slept right there ALL DAY LONG.
Although he did wake up long enough to clean his head.
This is about a third of the way through all the outline quilting…
Ah Midnight. Miss you baby.
Finally up into the face. I had this goal yesterday to finish all the outline quilting.
I didn’t quite get there. Almost…the little heads are freakin’ awesome with the outlining done…
NOW you know why I do teeth.
After dinner, I did more fill-in on this…I think it was on the left side…
I also stitched down some rhinos…I had the last episode of The Crown to watch and I can’t do that while quilting. I also graded another assignment in there.
These are the July blocks…trying to get all the wool bits sewn down over break so I don’t have to worry about those any more.
Then back to quilting the miasma of birth control options…the screwdriver is not one of those, by the way…to be clear.
There’s all the heads!
They look awesome. I have one arm left to do, plus the moon and stars and an asteroid. Then background quilting. That’s today. I’m at 9 1/2 hours in the quilting. Then tomorrow, off to the quilt store for binding. No way do I have yardage for that at the moment. The back was a glorious mishmash and I’m OK with that…not so much on the binding.
So yeah, I gotta leave the house today. More blood tests, who knows what else? Calli isn’t leaving…
Silly old lady.
Seriously, I think I am more focused when I have pajamas on. You should try it.
