Saturday I went to the Angelica NY Lavender Fest & Farm Market - Despite the rain it was a fun event and I came home with some veg, a purple gayfeather, a few gifts and a pile of what I call silly socks. I didn't think to take a picture but imagine purple socks with sprigs of lavender, bright blue Nefertiti, bright yellow with Klimt's The Kiss, moose on snowy mountains and skunks on green grass. I told you they were silly but who wants to wear boring grey socks with bright colored summer tshirts??!!
Saturday night was a grad party and then an after party with my coworkers. OMG - you should have tried the home made cinnamon peach moonshine. It was smoooooooth!
|LOVE my new green walls!|
A late night rescue call meant a late start to the day Tuesday. I skipped my walk (not a smart move, esp cuz I also skipped today's walk for another rescue call last night) but I did have company while I screwed around online on my iPhone.
Before yesterday was out, there would be a total of 4 rescue calls and a massive power outage during one of those calls. I had left my Bernina on during the call and rushed home as fast as I could to unplug it before the power came on. I was too chicken to plug it in again last night for fear of damage or the power going out again.
Luckily I had made some progress on the ruler quilting but this is how it stands for more attention tonight. I'm still not perfect with the ruler (ie stitch length while FMQing curves) but I'm having fun and it looks fantastic.
I love my large table with 2 drawers I can pull out to support large quilts as needed while it's also "puddled" around the needle allowing for easier movement, instead of dragging the whole quilt around. I puddle whether using rulers or not.
And last but not least, it's time for last week's weather report. 'Consistent' was pretty much the word of the week (70-77-75-76-78-75-75F) and we are looking at a lot more of the same in the next week.
BTW - would anyone be interested in a weather linky party each Wednesday?
Happy Hump Day!!!
