I hereby declare that the next time you see this hat it will not longer…
So, do you think I blew it? Or do you think I kept the faith of the “Wednesdays are for Quilting” rule? Here’s a hint.
That’s 36, count ’em 36, Log Cabin blocks with the first light and first dark sides completed. So, I must have stuck to the rules, right?
Well, ummmm, not exactly. I actually worked on the blocks last weekend, so last night when Dale suggested we go out while Hannah was at a birthday party, I was able to say an emphatic, yeah, baby. And I didn’t even feel guilty about it because I’d already met my quota for the week.
Okay, so I might have felt a little guilty about not quilting on the very first Wednesday following the creation of the “Wednesdays are for Quilting” rule. But you all know how hot it is around these parts. And Cassie put it best when she wrote about the absurdity of working on things to keep us warm when it’s hotter than the hinges of hell. Honestly, though, I’m not complaining. Stephanie said it quite eloquently a while ago — you can’t complain about winter and summer. Pick one and hate it more. I pick winter! C’mon, guys, remember winter? The cold and the snow and the shoveling and the heating bills and the kids (and husband, in my case) home from school unexpectedly? That sucked! In the meantime, though, the creation of things to keep up warm just feels a little silly right now.
That’s why I’m perservering with socks (and so’s Margene!) and tiny quilt squares instead of Einstein Coats and Leaf Lace Shawls. Yup, that’s why. It’s got nothing to do with the fact that the Einstein Coat is a sweltering mass of garter stitch or the fact that I don’t understand the bind off instructions for the Leaf Lace Shawl. Not a freakin’ thing to do with those issues at all.
You guys are buying this, right?
