Am I three again? No, but I have been puttering around the house with a runny nose while I play with my blocks. I’ve been sick the last few days, so the only thing I’ve really had any energy for is quilting. That said, lemme show you the progress I’ve made on my purple & aqua quilt.
We started out here.
Then things started growing…
And things really took off after I figured out a better process: chain sewing a bunch of components instead of doing one block at a time!
It took forever to figure out the layout of all those blocks. I ended up deciding I wanted the blocks I liked the most closest to the center. Sorry the photos aren’t the best quality- my camera stinks at taking pictures inside, and it was rough trying to fit everything in the frame. Truman got pretty bored of me taking pictures…
Although I took two days off of running, I got back to it today. Technically I took a sick day off of work, but I guess I shouldn’t have because turns out I felt good enough for a run. It was 57 stinkin’ degrees today- how could I not run?!? The glory of running in a single layer of clothing!!!!!
Here’s something I’ve been liking a lot on my runs:
It’s a Tervis Tumbler that Brian got from one of his athletes. I kinda stole it. In this household we’ve kinda got a use-it-or-lose-it mentality. The reason I really like this is because it holds a lot of water, keeps it cold, AND it fits into the cupholder in the car. AND it has the Bulldog on it. I was using a Nalgene bottle (remember those?) for a long while, but that did NOT fit in the cupholder. Plus, I like sipping out of this lid better.
