Chris does house painting and when he has jobs he pretty much works continuously until it’s done. He worked 12 straight days earlier this month and he started a new job yesterday. As a result, we both have to check our computers every morning to see what day it is. Yesterday was Monday as far as I was concerned!
Of course, when you are retired and/or work from home the days often get confused and that’s a really nice luxury. Like the luxury of quilting time that I had this weekend.
I finished quilting my Snaps quilt! I WILL get this bound and finished this week so that I have a finish for my July UFO quilt.
The Shaken, Not Stirred quilt is loaded and basted. When I bought my Innova and took the new owners class, Val and Micelle taught us how to properly baste a quilt. I never basted quilts on my APQS because the shortest stitch length was 7 SPI. The Innova can do 2 or 3 SPI so basting is easy. Basting my quilts has really made a big difference in how quickly I can quilt a quilt and reduces the number of problems.
I think I’m going to use this variegated thread. The background has all of these colors in it so I think it will look really nice.
I also did a new exercise routine this weekend and today I’m so sore I can barely move! There are some excellent free exercise apps out there to try. Time for some ibuprophen.
