Over these past three days, my plan has been simple: post to blog today… Well, on
+ Unraveled Wednesday, I realized what I was doing not quite right stitching the Confetti Quilt block using the Foundation Paper Piecing technique. Simply put, I was using the full 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper when I only needed the actual block with just about a .25 margin around the outer perimeter. Duh! Smaller + smarter makes all the difference in the world – not that I’ve yet mastered the technique but I am on the right route …
+ 3 on Thursday, my agenda included: several loads of laundry; a long phone conversation with my sister; a two hours’ beak, midday for a a bit of “daily pages” creation; joining Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Book Club session: Find Your Book People (i.e., people in your community who might enjoy chatting on an informal basis about books they read ); and a telephone conference with Norman’s medical team. It is now well past 6 PM, EST – time to prepare a light meal; soon, it will be time to join an 8 PM, EST Zoom session … Whatever happened to the day? Might as well wait til tomorrow to post … and so tomorrow is Today –
+TGIF, This is the week for the annual – 46 years and counting – Outdoor Quilt Show in Sisters, Oregon; last year, ’twas cancelled due to COVID and this year, the week long classes were held virtually. However, the quilts, from quilters near and far will be hung/displayed tomorrow, Saturday, outside on buildings and from trees throughout the Town of Sisters and also virtually*. Visitors – some too from around the globe – are expected to descend on the Town – pop 2K+- on Saturday. Were times different, I might’ve been one; I’d like to have been one. I’ve not been to Sisters since 2017 and frankly, I miss my trips to my favorite spot on the planet. I reserve hope for 2022… and I’m grateful this year’s SOQS is on! Thanks to modern technology, I can at least view the quilts from home. Almost the next best thing to being there! * You too can see the quilts on SOQS day – starting 7 am Pacific Time, just click on the link above and ENJOY!
P.S. This week, in honor of the Quilt Show and in lieu of being in Sisters, I’ve worn T-shirts acquired since 2009. It’s the next best thing to being there. ;-)). Have a great weekend!
