Tuesday's near its end, and that means we're two-fifths of the way to the weekend. Here in the US, it's a loooong weekend, with Labor Day on Monday. Three more days of work and then three days off. Beyond that, we'll just pull down the shades so we can't see past Monday night, and we'll pretend those three days off work will just go on, and on, and on . . . .
I don't seem anxious or anything, do I?
To tell you the truth, I think I'm kind of boring tonight. As far as I know, none of my family or friends has done anything stupid, funny, or otherwise blog-worthy today. In other words, I don't have any good stories to tell you, and if you're considering eating or drinking something while reading my blog--well, your keyboard and monitor are probably safe.
It's hard to believe that August is nearing its end and so many schools are back in session already. For a couple minutes this morning, I thought I detected a hint of Autumn in the air. We're in for hotter temperatures for the next few days, so whatever Autumn molecules were floating around this morning will be banished to a time in the future. But it's coming. I know it is!
So what have I been doing in the Sweat Shop lately? Nothing that would promise quick results and your corresponding amazement over how much I get done. Nope. I'm still stuck on hand applique, and it's a slooooow process. For the time being, I've abandoned the Halloween witch quilt--it sits quietly on my design wall, rebuking me for my fickleness. I've returned to my other current love, the X-Rated quilt. Do you want a sneak peek? Keep in mind that none of these pieces are actually sewn down yet--they are just basted and/or otherwise prepared to be placed and sewn, and I only have the pieces for one of the four corners prepared up to this point.
I think I want to give that large yellow flower a pink center. Funny how looking at a photo allows you to see things your eyes don't pick up. It will be quite a few days before I'll be able to call this top done. And I think I'll rename it--instead of X-Rated, I think I'll call it Kisses and Flowers. Or Bouquets and Kisses. Or . . . what do you think? Any suggestions?
