I am more than half way through Five Quarters of the Orange, listening to the digital version as I drive around. I like the descriptions, especially of the food. I am not much of a gourmet, so I think it is hilarious how much I enjoy books about food- this one and those such as Ruth Reichl’s books. I am enjoying it, even though some people don’t like it. It is nice to have something to listen to as I drive around. I have been out of sorts today. I am not sure why. Not enough sewing, not enough free time, I imagine. Perhaps I’ll have some time off after next week. I haven’t made any appointments. I have a hard time sewing during the weekdays, so we’ll see
I finished the top of Feelin’ Blue, Too last weekend. I finally finished the back yesterday. I haven’t applied the label yet. I did something different with the label this time. Mom bought me some printable fabric, so I created a label in Word and then printed it on fabric. I included a headshot of myself! Not sure why, but I did. It looks nice, but feels somewhat odd.
The color of the top nags at the back of my mind again. The oranges really stick out and I hope not too much to take away from the blue.
I haven’t found someone to quilt either of the quilts yet. I have a space reserved with CG, but she won’t be back until the end of the month and I won’t receive them back until August 15. I am amazed that she left right at the time that people would want to have their quilts quilted for the show. Of course, all of those people, myself included, should have been more organized.
