The day started out wet, gray, and dark yesterday, but then turned fairly nice in the afternoon. It was even a little bit warm. It didn't really matter to me. I'd already set my sites on sewing, and I was ready to finish off the last fringe on the tablecloth for the Taco block. The first step was to sew on the borders.
And then, I settled into a comfy chair to stitch on the fringe. What a painus in the anus, but it is done! And this is the last fringy fringe I'll have to do for this quilt.
Completing this quilt block was my goal for May's
and so I'll link up there when the party starts at the end of the month.
There is still one more block to make before I'm ready to sew this into a flimsy. Here are all the blocks I have so far:
The only other sewing I did yesterday was to fill in my hoop for Pieces of the Past. I think those English Daisies are an improvement over the first one I did a week or so ago. There is still one more to do on this piece. Also, I officially ran out of that yellow floss yesterday. I'll have to pick up some more before I can continue further with the tablecloth.
So, there wasn't a whole lot accomplished yesterday. I spent quite a bit of time on my embroidery, and I've been keeping up with my new home workout fairly regularly. I ended up purchasing several different kinds of resistance bands. Originally, I had some like this:
The old ones broke the first time I used them, and so I had to purchase a new set. Then, I realized I'd need this shorter version for some of the exercises. So, I invested in another version.
And I was trying earnestly to make the ones with handles work for the exercises that required a longer looping band, I wasn't able to do it. So, I ended up with yet another version of the bands. The one in the image below is rubber banded together, but it opens up to a continuous loop. There are differing strengths on all of these, but I'm working with the wimpiest among them. There's no use getting carried away, right?
And all of that to say I sat on the couch until around 11:00 a.m. yesterday, doing my slow-stitching. And then, I made myself do my home workout, which put me into the sewing room even later in the day. There probably won't be much time for sewing today either. We're talking about heading south to pick up a wine shipment. It would be good to get out for a drive.
Monday and Tuesday, the forecast calls for some drier and warmer weather. I'm looking forward to getting out and weeding the herb garden. Also, we're wanting to get the greenhouse cleaned out, and so there's plenty to do outside the sewing room too. Sunday morning pancakes are next on the agenda, and that's where I'm heading. I hope y'all have a nice day. Please pick up the slack in the sewing room for me.
