Since we have now marked the summer solstice (and how can that be already?), I decided it was high time to put a summery looking quilt on my bed.
Why do I need a quilt on my bed in the summer? Because I go to bed freezing, as the A/C is set to hubby the polar bear's preference. But then, because I am of an age when all hormones break loose, I wake at 4:30 a.m. to throw ALL the covers off, sheet included, until the hotness passes. Twenty or so minutes later, I pull at least the sheet and comforter back on. Lather, rinse, and repeat for another couple hours, and you get my drift. I love mornings.
Anyway, since there hasn't been a whole lot of work on quilts this week, at least I can look at a different one on my bed.
I did get all the center circles fused onto the string Dresdens, and tonight I machine stitched one down along the outer circle, as well as the inner centers. I've got another one ready to stitch down...whenever.
The progress on this quilt has been slow, and I think things will continue to move along on it incrementally for the foreseeable future. Did I mention I'm helping my dad get a book written? Yeah, so there's that. Plus regular life, work, other things that need doing in the summer, etc. Always something.
So I guess I really do love mornings—after I am out of bed, that is.
