I’m finally going to be home a few days and my plan was to start to quilting Mom’s Honeybee top. By the time I made all the phone calls, emails, and faxing that I needed to it was already afternoon – but that’s OK because Keith has a dinner tonight so I still had lots of time to quilt.
Things started off pretty good and considering I hadn’t done any free motion quilting in a few weeks I was pretty happy with the top two borders. Unfortunately I didn’t like the quilting in the sashing and although I rarely rip quilting out – I decided I had to rip and try something else. So most of my quilting afternoon was spent ripping out rather than making progress on this quilt.
I did quilt a couple more hours after dinner but now I’m going to call it a night. I’m reading a pretty good book that believe it or not is set in Minneapolis. It’s Tami Hoag’s new mystery Prior Bad Acts. I’ve a bunch of her books but for the life of me can’t remember where the other ones take place. I always like reading a book that is set in a city I know. It just adds something to be able to actually picture the setting that’s being described.
