It's no small matter to rethread the machine where Eliza is concerned. Whenever I put in a new color, I also stitch any thread spool cornerstones if they are the same color. There were four of those yesterday as well.
My goal has been to do a row of blocks each day. After yesterday, however, I'm wondering if that's a realistic goal. I'm afraid my enthusiasm starts to wane after a couple of hours. Nevertheless, I've quilted these six blocks and their sashings now.
And certainly the job couldn't have gone as
quickly slowly without my helper cat providing the necessary drag.
This morning I got a good start on the "Written in Thread" stitchery. I'll probably be able to finish this one off tomorrow.
Today I'm making a chili that requires several steps throughout the day. I need to roast some Anaheim peppers and brown some pork and I'm going to bake some cornbread to go with it. It'll be the first Dutch oven recipe of the season. The salads and quick cold meals of summer are wonderful, but it's hard to beat something that cooks low and slow in the Dutch oven. Mike loves how the house smells when he comes in after arriving home from work.
So perhaps today is a day of domestication with housework and cooking on the horizon. Quilting will happen if I have the time and inclination.
