Main | I'm about to make you very, very jealous. »

Big on the plans, small on the execution.

I planned to have a Snickers for dinner. Which is a problem considering I failed to buy one on my quick trip to the drug store. Doh! Guess it's cereal for me, once again. (Yes, we are at an all-time low on "Food in the apartment." But do I care? Not much.)


I'm sooooooooo happy to be able to update my iPod this evening. I was really going a little nutso on the topic. So the pic above (4 inch strips sewn together in pairs then cut in 4 inch increments again) was sometime Saturday. And the picture below (previous duos sewn into six patches, then set in blocks between sashing) was sometime Monday.


Since then I finished putting the white (it's not solid but you know what I'm saying) strips around. Now the entire thing gets a "border" of the same 4 inch pink squares that were the six patches in the centers. I've sewn those border strips together, hopefully tonight I'll press them and sew them on. Then it'll be on to the basting. Woot.

It's really miraculous how fast a SMALL quilt made of LARGE pieces can go together. Considering that most of the quilts in progress are LARGE quilts made of SMALL pieces I can now better understand the futility I feel when working on them.

And the stash binge pictures referred to a few days ago are up on flickr now if you want some real eye candy (click flickr in the logo image).

Electricity = so necessary.

You do realize that I'm touching myself a little bit when I see these pics, right?

In a totally non-sexual way.

Very cute and glad your back with the turn of the century electric technology. No more gaslamps and horse and buggy?
