Oy, I've got a massive to-do list before the Fool and I can head for Pigtown Fling in Cincinnati.
It's one of our can't-miss contra dance weekends where we get to see all our Ohio and Kentucky friends, stay up too late playing music, and stop for groceries at Jungle Jim's.
It's also a great chance to get some knitting time in while we drive.
This week, though, hasn't been much knitting for me. I've been seized with an urge to finish unfinished projects - get stuff off my back. Hence, the cats and I have been hanging around downstairs together, watching TV and sewing. This is a quilt top I started last winter and picked up again this winter when the relentless snow and cold got to me and I really, really wanted spring. I have a friend who is just starting a long-arm quilting business, and she's going to quilt it for me. I can machine quilt, but when pieces start to get this big, they become unwieldy and no fun. Then I'm going to rent a few movies and sew the binding, and then the Fool and I will have something cheerful on our bed.
The quilt we have on there now is this very quiet blue quilt made of lots of Japanese indigo prints. I put this on the bed to check the size, and it woke up the entire room.
OK. Off to speed through the rest of my to-do list, make a quick lunch, load the car and collect the Fool.
