Merrily I Baste Along
Last night I hardly slept at all and I had to go to work today...blah. I ended up with such a headache by the time I got home that I took some Tylenol and had a little rest on the couch. Once the medicine kicked in I was able to baste the pink 9-patch Project Linus quilt that I had been working on for last month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. It seems it was my lucky day because look how close I came to the end of the batting. I am not quite sure how I measured it but thankfully there was just enough and I didn't have to add any extra. The backing had been made and I was ready to baste this quilt for a while now but my son has been using the dining room table as a work space while studying for his final exams. I dared not move any of his stuff from the table over the last couple weeks but since he wrote his last exam yesterday I am taking over again. Until the basement is renovated I need to use the dining room table for basting and for ironing large pieces of fabric.
I was planning on heading into my sewing room tonight to cut some more fabrics for my Little Houses quilt but now I think I just might go to my room early and read in bed for a while. It definitely is a tempting option!
