a) to pack an entire house;
b) finish a draft of a book by Sept. 1st;
c) finish crocheting a blanket, among other projects;
d) art journal everyday;
e) crit a friend's MS;
f) host a cookout for 7 and tea for 4;
g) keep a very active baby out of trouble?
Why, one cuts 400+ squares out of madras and white cotton then sews the little squares into strips
and the strips into squares
and joins them with bigger squares to make a madras quilt top, a king-sized quilt top to be precise, the first quilt one has ever made (excepting a simplistic baby quilt --the one hanging on the Sprout's crib).
I used this quilt from Pippa Patchwork as inspiration but had to recalculate for size and the more abstract look I wanted (smaller squares inserted in the large, frex).
Here ends the procrastination (I'll do the back and the actual quilting while watching the Rugby World Cup this Sept/Oct). I must now pack for the truck must be loaded Monday night, and we are hitting the road early Tuesday morning. Next time I see you I will be in on the flanks of the Black Mountains or on the shores of the Arcachon Basin.
Be well, my friends.
