I would like to report that things have been quiet around here. If you count all the coughing and nose blowing, things are literally not quiet around here. But I guess things have been quiet figuratively because who has any energy after all the coughing? The after-effects of this virus have been very interesting, you never know what will happen next, affecting parts of your body you didn’t expect. Keeps things exciting, I guess. Keeps the over the counter remedy companies in business. And, gosh, who knew that every eight or so years, you might want to replace your thermometer? See? Very exciting. I am happy to report that my sense of taste seems to be returning. That was a blow cuz who doesn’t enjoy a tasty meal and if you can’t taste it, where is the enjoyment??? I am going to hold off taste testing the new Starbucks instant coffee samples that arrived.
I’m still sewing Neptune curves and doing some idea/theory testing. Here is one such test:
Aha, 20 wedges but not 18 degrees. It took me a while to realize that the large ones aren’t 18 degrees and the small ones aren’t 9 degrees. More like 24 and 12. That’s why I’m not a mathematician. Well, I guess that’s just one of innumberable reasons.
Here is another test:
This is small but inspired by Denyse Schmidt’s Single Girl quilt pattern. I need to re-think that ric-rac on the inside of the circle, perhaps pulling it a little tighter as I sew next time. Or leaving it out altogether and just turning that edge under. You see, I’m trying to broaden the horizon of the ric-rac applique application. I don’t just show you final products, you get to see the realm of possibilities as they happen. Lucky, aren’t you? Hmm, possibly also it would be a little boring around here waiting for things to be finished. Or I might have to claim upper respiratory virus a lot. The reality of that is plenty, thanks, I won’t go inviting it by making it up.
Oh, I paid a small tribute to Natasha Richardson today and watched Widow’s Peak. I can’t believe I hadn’t seen it before. A very nice movie. I have enjoyed every movie I’ve seen her in. What a sad ending.
