In the interest of progress on the UFO/Mystery Quilt, the backing got washed. I did finish sewing the remaining rows on Monday night and the center is complete. Yay, me.
The backing was purchased last year just after I finished up the blocks for the Mystery Quilt. The colors were just right and I loved the big bold print--not something I would normally gravitate to.
Indonesia, by April Cornell. See the funny bird and big butterfly? I am considering quilting this from the back but it depends if I truly have enough yardage. I bought 5 yards but am afraid to do the MATH just now. As I keep saying, I am a WORD girl, not a MATH girl.
Tonight's main event was an archaeological dig to uncover a seldom-seen surface. This ugly wet bar is the first horizontal surface as we enter the house from the garage so has always been a dumping ground. Those two trays have been overflowing with opened/unopened mail, unfiled filing, and assorted junk mail for months. Getting mail for five people is a horrendous cycle of sort, shred, recycle, and ignore. Our filing cabinets in the office need a complete purge and reorganizing. Again, really boring, but that's what's going on at Casa de Orts this week!
