Today flew by. Probably because I spent most of it working on a T-shirt quilt. I haven’t made a quilt in a while. This will be my 8th. I listened to Be Myself by Sheryl Crow on repeat all day. I’m glad I checked to see if she released anything recently. I’m a little behind with her (but compared to just discovering Stevie Nicks, not much.) I stood about 7 feet away from Sheryl Crow’s tour bus as it was pulling into the fairgrounds years ago, and waved, (even though I couldn’t see anyone through the tinted windows.)
I accepted M’s proposal. I told him we should wait until after the national crisis, though. He doesn’t want to wait so we’ll talk about it more. Instead of rings, we’re going to think of something else. My first wedding ring, engagement ring, expensive watch, and a few other similar items are somewhere under the sand in the desert outside of El Paso. I lost one diamond stud in Grafenwoehr, Germany. The other one disappeared along with roughly half my possessions when they were shipped stateside. One rollerblade made it. 🙄
I took some pictures of my quilt in progress.
It’s not ironed yet. I haven’t decided what I’ll use for the back. I think I have some flannel left over from my Cookie Monster quilt. I’m getting better at this because I didn’t lose a single drop of blood this time, (so far.) I did all the cutting on a board on the floor, which made it easier. From now on, I’m always going to listen to music when I sew. (I didn’t have wireless headphones last time.) I can’t wait to continue working on it, (but will till tomorrow, so I don’t disturb my neighbors.)
I finished re-reading A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving the other day. It’s been years since I last read it, and I got a lot more out of it this time. I’m reading The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland now. I don’t even read the synopsis before buying his novels anymore. I know I’ll like it, whatever it’s about. Excellence is dependable. I’m probably getting loopy from lack of sleep, so I’m off to read, and hopefully, sleep.
