Now that I am not working myself into an early grave by a bunch of overtime, I have free time. This weekend I was in a miff. After much reflection, other than buying cat food, and going to work, I GO NO WHERE! Because I work, the other half does the grocery shopping. So things that would break my at home/work monotony would be a quilt show ever few months. Yeah, those are pretty much done for. I probably need to get out. But what?
The Meh’s put me in a funk, that I would pick something up to work on it, and I just sat it back down. Other than working, I am the perfect home-body. Perfectly satisfied to be at home for days. Home is my playground.
My grumpiness I contribute partly to this not having anywhere to go. No destination to look forward to on the calendar. It has kind of taken my MOJO a bit. Saturday I laid down for a nap, and I slept 12 1/2 hours. Sunday I could have taken a nap too. Too much of anything makes Jack a dull boy. I am feeling dull.
I did manage to snap some photos of the progress of the dream big opal 108 panel. I made myself sew 365 blocks. Not sure of the progress I will make this week now because I am in a funk/rut.
The feather petal was the grand size of me having to roll the quilt back and forth at least four times to finish one motif before moving onto the next motif in that leaf.
I have stopped placing the chenille on this and will do that after I have it quilted. It was getting in the way. It is what it is.
Brainstorming for the quilting of this……I know there will be a spider web, I mean it is October. The small petals towards the center will be some feathers. I have realized the scale of these to draw squares or a grid which can help with a different style for each petal. I am not struggling this time like I did the first time, trying not to repeat anything and quilting it to death. I have decided that some will be dense and some will not. I will try to balance this out for symmetry.
As the Meh’s go, have a fabulous week! And thank you for reading my blog!
