Yesterday did turn out to be a pretty lethargic day but I did accomplish a few thing including a nap, 5 loads of laundry, a test run of the Vitamix and, most importantly, I got the mew fabrics in the shop.
I don't get the time to make shibori as often as I want but I did get some made last week. I got this latest batch listed last night. I hope you like them! You can check them out here.
I spent yesterday sitting with my cousin. She broke her ankle 2 weeks ago and it was a very serious break. She has 5 fractures healing with a plate and several screws. She can't out any weight on it for at least 6 weeks. She doesn't need a lot of help but does need someone to get things for her and help her up and down. Plus she's incredibly bored. If she sewed or knitted I could keep her really busy but she doesn't have any interest in creative pursuits.
But that didn't stop me. I worked on my flower applique blocks. I finished 1 and a half yesterday. The others were done at the beach. I only have 6 more to go! I need to get busy planning out the setting and borders so I can keep the energy behind this quilt.
Two days at the river and one day of pretend nursing has left me really tired. I'm supposed to be dyeing today but I'm postponing that until tomorrow. Today I hope to get all the fabric I dyed last week ironed and listed and maybe there's a nap and possibly some lemon sorbet in my new toy.
Before I talk about what we did at the river I want to remind you to enter the HSTeria Quilt Along grand prize drawing. Enter here.
We came home from the river yesterday but not before finishing the projects that we wanted.
Anne got her heart quilt top all together. It's really cool to see this project coming to fruition. Of course now she has to come up with another travel project.
I got officially caught up on all of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks. I shared the batik blocks yesterday. I finished those on Sunday. Yesterday I finished the repro blocks.
Here are the yellow ones. I had to add in some green fabrics. I didn't have a lot of yellow repro charms.
Here are the red ones. I had lots of red charms and can make more of these if I fall short in another month. I'm officially ready for August.
I won't be getting much done today. I'm hanging out with my cousin playing day nurse. She fractured her ankle 2 weeks ago and needs help to get around. I was here last week too and she's already doing better. She's got a long way to go to heal 5 fractures. Her ankle is a mess.
She's very low maintenance so I have some flower applique blocks and zentangling to do. But, honestly, I feel a nap coming on at the moment.
