As I was driving back from the post office after mailing these luscious reds to my Bull's Eye swap partners, it occurred to me that I need to keep track of my quilting commitments. Suddenly I have so many! The joys of retirement... :)
It will be a pleasure to delete my office calendar from my master Google calendar and replace it with a quilting calendar. I'll have such wonderful entries -- I can see them now: "marvelous mini-quilt due," "send off fabulous fabrics to partners," "take fun strings to worknight," "pick a project for quilting group." So much better than "boring 2-hr staff meeting," don't you think?
I'm still working on the rainbow strings I showed yesterday. Our guild's Project Linus stash has plenty of strings, and it seems that when you take out one, two replace it. It's one of those quilting miracles. I have been pulling from one of our baskets, and what a mess. But it seems to be my day for brilliant ideas (I'm counting my quilting calendar as brilliant), because I suddenly remembered the clothes rack!
I have used this for hanging strings before, and the rack resides neatly folded up in my quilting space, but I had completely forgotten about it. I got it out and pressed and hung my purple strings. It's so easy to find just the right one now! Why didn't I remember this before?
