The internet gremlins continue. We were only out for about a day and a half but since then the service has been really poor. If this post goes up with 3 photos it will be a miracle. Supposedly it will be fixed today by 3PM. I hope Centurylink will pardon me if I am sceptical.
Instead of reading blogs I did some stuff around the house and quilted. I got the quilting done on this QOV quilt. Later this week I'll take Willie apart and ship him to Iowa for his spa treatment. I'm really looking forward to having him back and getting the Bliss rail system. I tried it out at a show last year and loved it. I know it's going to be a lot better than what I have now.
I also walked on the pond. I know that people living in Wisconsin and Minnesota are laughing their heads off at me but this is an anomaly here. The last time the pond froze was 2004. This was Saturday and it's already thawing today. I decided to try some standing yoga poses. It was harder than I expected on the slippery ice. Chris snapped this just one millisecond before I lost my balance.
As I was typing this I just realized that he didn't get on the ice with me. Hmmmmmm
Most of my weekend was spent with this. I tried several different ways to make the crumb blocks work in this quilt but they just would not play nice with the quilt. I finally gave up and I went to bed Saturday night planning to fold up this project and put it away. I just could not figure out what to do and I need to move on to other things.
I woke up Sunday morning realizing what was wrong. Whatever I did in this last border needed to be mostly yellow. I decided to scrap the crumb blocks and play off the flying geese in the previous border. Here's where I am now and this will be finished soon!
If the internet comes back today I will be posting some new fabrics this evening and then I'll be finishing off Fractured Fragments. Check out what everyone else is doing at Patchwork Times.
