Did I keep you up last night? All the whirring of machines? I've gotten a lot done this week!
The blue/white double Irish chain is waiting for borders. The Serenity quilt needs one last border. And the pink/cream Jacob's ladder is quilted!
And while I was quilting, I was thinking about my favorite "quilting tools".
My MP3 player with my favorite music, I clip it onto the BACK of my collar, then the wires don't get tangled with anything else. I especially like this player as it has no batteries, it charges while it's plugged into my computer. I use the ear buds, Ken works nights and then I don't have to crank the music up while I sew. The flashlight, well, I often get under my quilts to check the bottom tension, and its much easier to do with a flashlight. The thread blends right into the backing, and with a flashlight at an angle and IF I remember to put my glasses on, I can see it! The scissors on the retractable leash, I can't sew without them. I have left the house with them still clipped to my shirt.
If I keep working, I may actually have a finish this week! Almost all my goals have been met! How has your week been??
