The fog and dampness makes me feel like taking it slow this morning and enjoying a few more stitches than usual.
I'd love to say that I'll have my 2016 Sarah Fielke BOM, Happy Days, completed before her 2017 BOM starts later this month....but I don't think so. That's ok though, it's getting there.
Right now I've been working on the appliqued corner blocks...
I'd remembered that I had received two sample spools of a new thread by WonderFil, Efina. It's a 60wt Egyptian cotton and in the description it says it's suited to applique so I thought I'd just better give it a try!
The first thing I noticed is that it had a nice feel to it which I thought was a strange thing to notice! It glided through the fabric nicely and I didn't experience any tangling.
At another time I might invest in this new thread line but not now...I have an abundance of applique thread.
I haven't done any quilting on my hearts since before Christmas. I didn't want to bring it out until our canine houseguests had left. I have it sitting out in plain view today to remind myself to do maybe an hour of quilting today...
Last Sunday I decided to watch a documentary that someone told me about called "Fat, Sick, Nearly Dead". I have to admit that it didn't sound like something I'd be interested in but thought I'd give it a polite 20 minutes to at least say I gave it a try.
Within ten minutes my husband joined me and we enjoyed the show.
When it was done, he said, "I guess we're going out tomorrow looking for a juicer?". Ha!
So, through the week we've tried to do a juice or two per day. I have to say that the first thing I notice is that we are both sleeping better than we have for a few years!
The juices are so pretty...
Wish me luck! Today I am starting a three-day juice cleanse. The good thing is is that each juice recipe we've tried has been quite tasty!...really!!!
The down-side is that I could evidently experience irritability for the next couple of days. Which means I should just bury myself into my applique and quilting to save the world from that irritability. Sounds like a plan!
I'm just starting to feel like I'm missing that cup of coffee that I didn't have this morning :(
I'm sure I'll survive!
I am linking up with Kathy's Quilts to see what others are slowing down to stitch on today, and with Quilting is More Fun Than Housework for Oh,Scrap!.
Have a great day.....and hopefully we'll see a bit of sun soon!
