The Weekend -- At Last
This past week, I drove more than 1000 miles & spent almost 21 hours behind the wheel. Last Sunday, my drive home was a little over 800 miles, taking about 13.5 hours. My round trip from home to work & back is almost exactly 50 miles & takes (if I'm lucky) about 45 minutes each way. (Shug & I carpool, but because my work is farther from home than his, I am nearly always the driver.)
I was tired of driving & just plain tired.
I was ready for the weekend!
I had things I needed to get done -- housework-y things: laundry, dusting, vacuuming, errands.
And there was LOTS I wanted to get done in my sewing room. (I don't know why, but I just can't seem to call *my* room, dedicated to *my* quilting, my *Studio*. What is the deal with that!?!)
I cut & stitched on the binding to my Stitch in Color quilt; I've decided to name it "Lucky" -- I'll explain why when I reveal the finished quilt.
I cut out some bibs to make for Bibs for Babies.
I stitched some on my Low Volume project -- I love it SO much. I did some fabric pulling & fabric stacking & a bit of fabric cutting for the Streak of Lightning QAL. (Two VERY different projects!)
I tried to figure out what went wrong with Shug's shirt. I got it mostly assembled while I was away, but notches & dots weren't matching up & now the collar & lapels look insane. Seems I tried to put the boys' size collar on the men's size shirt. grrr
I meant to take a nap, but never really found the time.
