I had every intention of posting Sunday Stash and staying on top of my blogging commitments, but after we filmed our two episodes of The Stitch on Saturday morning, our very dear friend and production guru was in an accident I’ve been a bit of mess and distracted ever since. She will ultimately be fine and Lynn and I are delivering her sustentative cake at the hospital soon.
In between worrying if I’ve been worrying enough about her, I did manage to finish quilting one of the big projects I was working on, despite the cats best efforts at helpering.
That was on top of baseball playoffs coming up this week for my son, a “quilting with rulers” class, three big old deadlines in the next three weeks, and fiddling with a new light tent for taking pictures of quilt assembly for pattern writing. Also with more helpering from the cats.
I’ve had to dehair it twice already.
In Sunday Stash news, I didn’t finish anything last week but I did buy fabric for a future project and couple yards for stash. I’ll provide some two-week numbers at the end of this week.
I had every good intention of posting WIP Wednesday yesterday, but I was a bit taken aback when I discovered that Google Hangouts on Air, which we’ve used for the Virtual Stitch-Ins for The Stitch, is no more, and really cramping the Virtual Stitch-In Friday night. So I spent a good bit of last night trying to figure out video encoding software and YouTube Live and what’s feasible, and then eventually just starting at the television in slack-jawed silence, cursing technology for dis-intermediating us from our audience yet again.
I’ve also written a lot of blog posts for work this week and I’m a little burned out on words. And technology. So possibly Lynn is coming to my house tomorrow night and we’ll be virtually stitching-in together and streaming it since I’ve got baseball/art class/Fall Festival for elementary school/a work event for me tomorrow that are going to prevent me from really sitting down and figuring out a video solution in the next 34 hours.
I’m also submitting a design to a magazine for the first time (!!!!) so that’s stressing me out a bit. And Fred the dog has wandered off and rolled around in a dead deer carcass for two nights this week. So, in the mean time, here’s Nina helping with another quilt on Cindy. Nina has the right idea to get in good lighting while surrounding herself with quilts.
