Do you ever have anxiety dreams about your quilts? I had one last night. I had a dream that while I was quilting the Going to Market quilt, I irreparably messed it up and somehow all the happy colors drained out of it. I woke up to this sinking feeling that the quilt was not so much ruined as it was now a giant disappointment.
I really think the dream was caused by poor circulation due to all of the SITTING I did yesterday while trying to finish the quilting. And I still had quilting to do when I got up this morning. I thought it would never end. Of course, if I didn’t feel the need to quilt it within an inch of its life. But, really, once some areas get all nice and flat, ALL of it needs to be nice and flat. To me. I am choosing to ignore the littlest baskets. They have been stitched in the ditch but no extra quilting. They puff out just a little. La la la, I can’t hear you, little baskets…
And then I didn’t think I had enough black and white stripe for the binding. Sorry, nothing else would do. The binding is comprised of many lengths of strips. Now to stitch it down and keep working on another project. Time’s a’wasting!
Before I leave, I’ve been remiss in not posting the March “in be ‘tween books” list. Books were indeed read in March — March being reading month around here. Quite apt that the in-house reader was born in March. So:
1. Odd & the Frost Giants – by Neil Gaiman (the favorite of the month)
2. The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson & the Olympians, Book 2) – by Rick Riordan
3. The Titan’s Curse (Percy Jackson & the Olympians, Book 3) – by Rick Riordan
4. The Hundred Dresses – by Eleanor Estes
