I AM working on a quilt -- two in fact -- thought I'd finish the paper pieced star quilt today. No. I was going great guns but it got to be dinner time before I knew it. I WILL finish tomorrow. And I'll take a photo and post it.
Things come up, of course, the novel I'm working on get precedence and THAT is just as time consuming in its way. Then walking on these good sunny days, we seem to be a bit ahead, maybe three sunny to two rainy ones. But enough rain so I always think I must get in the exercise on the sunny ones. Then there's that nasty little business of housekeeping, laundry and cooking. Well, it's not all nasty. I was just given some rhubarb which, of course, is seasonal. So making a rhubarb and strawberry pie is on the immediate agenda. No complaint there, I love it and think I've got enough to make two pies so they can be shared.
Right now it's pushing 7:00 p.m. and we have that beautiful dusky-watery light. I wish a poem were coming to me but it's not -- poems come quite rarely actually and of those very few are worth sharing. Enough in the excuse department for not posting any quilts lately. Soon, I promise ... er, I hope.
