Welcome to Main Crush Monday! I have to say, I am so happy we are starting a new week. Not that last week was bad. Not at all. But it was a challenging week, and I’m hoping this new one runs a bit more smoothly.
I have to apologize to everyone who commented and linked to MCM last week. I only visited a couple of the link-ups, and didn’t get to respond to any of the comments. Not for lack of trying, but for lack of internet service. You see, I have satellite internet service. If the weather is bad with crazy rain or heavy cloud cover or snow then the internet goes out. And we had crazy rain, flooding, snow, and gloomy cloudy days for almost the entire week. Not to mention the highest water levels and flooding we’ve had in a really long time.
Sounds aggravating, right? It really was. Then, my computer died. The tech I took it to says it is most likely a virus and is probably fixable. I’ll find out sometime today. Meanwhile I’m using an old laptop – let’s cross our fingers that it lives a long life!
All of that happened after I dropped my phone and shattered it. I did get a new phone, but still don’t have it set up to read my email or any of the other convenient apps I’ve grown used to. I would seriously love to have my old phone back.
Also, I recently discovered that some of my emails are not reaching the inboxes of the recipients. So, if you have commented on a post in the past and didn’t receive a response from me it may be in your spam folder. Lately several emails I have sent were found with their spam mail.
Technology and me, we are not friends right now.
But this is a new week, and things will be better. We have sunshine on tap for today and tomorrow, and sunshine always makes the day better!
Let’s move on to quilting! I had planned on having the last two borders sewn to the Card Trick quilt by now, but that didn’t happen. I did put on two sides of the first border but don’t like the way they look. The batik fabric is not a good choice, so those two strips are coming off.
It’s funny how a fabric can look so good when it’s stacked with others, but not so much when it is actually pieced. So now I’m going to change the plan a bit – instead of two borders, I’ll just make one larger one with a different print.
I’m suppose to have more time at home this week. I hope that translates to more time in my sewing room, and I can get this quilt top finished. I really need to move on to more pressing items on my To Do list.
On the business side of things, I only finished one customer quilt last week. It was the second labyrinth quilt (twin to the one shown below), and I quilted it almost exactly like this first one.
I currently have 12 quilts in the queue, so I better get on it!
I hope you have had a much more productive time in your sewing space than I have recently. I would love to see the projects you are working on – you can link them here. What has you excited to be in your sewing space? You can link any blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic – here’s how:
