I woke up this morning in pain and the meds just refused to kick in so the energy level is not the best. With good intentions I wandered into the kitchen and since I have a self-cleaning oven, I turned it on. (NOT) It's been awhile since I used a self-cleaning oven, what can I say.... About two hours after I turned it on (I had gone to lie down) I came into the kitchen and found the oven was still cold. Okay, so maybe there's something new here - it doesn't heat up! Well everything was set so I sat down at the computer (I can see the stove from the computer) and just kept glancing over every now and then - until I had a EUREKA MOMENT!!!! - duh, did you set the timer dummy!!!! Nope! Needless to say - 4 hours later, the oven is now clean. It dawned on me that there are buttons on the stove that I know nothing about.....
Have not gotten to that freezer yet (there's still time) and the dishes are hidden behind a wall so I'm ignoring them for now but I may get a BURST of energy later...I'm saving my real energy for tomorrow's Sit & Bitch, so there!
I can, however report, that with Jonathan hogging the TV yesterday I settled down to some serious stitching.
There are now 10 blocks done on Row 8.
Block #76 - Sawtooth - 22 pieces
Block #111 - Wrench - 17 pieces
Plus I have completed 2 more blocks. These two blocks plus Block #58 completed previously make up the balance of Row 8. I wish I could say I will get those attached tonight but the plan is to watch Blue Bloods and head for bed. Need to conserve my energy for tomorrow. Tomorrow I will be doing machine piecing for a long awaited change. Don't even have to pack because I never unpacked from my last trip to Neilson Park where Etobicoke Quilter's Guild has their weekly Sit & Sew. I'm working on two flannel quilts - may be able to take some pictures tomorrow. I am really looking forward to seeing the girls and getting some sewing done as well....
Thought I'd share my last "read" with you all. This book was a surprise for me. It's been hanging around the house for awhile and I did try to read it at one time but got bored and put it down. I usually don't pick a book up again if I can't read it the first time but I was desperate for something so....the story line is pretty good and once you get past all the technical jargon, the writer was in the Air Force, it's a pretty good book. It is a great read for anyone (mostly men) who are into war toys and stuff like that....in the end I enjoyed it but I don't think I will go hunting for his other books.
Dale Brown - Plan of Attack
This is getting scary - I've managed to blog 3 days in a row!!! Like "Dear Diary"! I've already picked up a book off the shelf at home to read but not sure how that's going to go. I find when I have the need to be in bed, whether for pain reasons, to rest or it's just bedtime, I like to have a book close at hand even if I just get a couple of pages read. I tried quilting books but that would perk me right up and motivate me to the extent I would jump out of bed and check my stash for fabrics, so it has to be serious reading material. If this one gets good - I'll share it!!!!
Have a great day everyone!
