Yesterday I stayed home sick. Kurt brought a hacking cough and noxious cold back from New Orleans and was nice enough to share. I stayed snuggled up in bed with a good book and slept the morning away. My friend Meisje who is an avid reader suggested a new book which I am thoroughly enjoying. She also suggested Sex Lives of Cannibals a couple of years ago, and that one was so funny. I'm enjoying this one, it has a nice Forest Gump kind of simplicity that is very appealing. I keep expecting each chapter to end with the main character saying, "And that's all I have to say about that."
Today I got a redbox movie so I could sit down and sew the binding on Lollipop. Lizzie didn't want to let me have my chair though, or my favorite t-shirt quilt. I'm on the couch now, quiltless, listening to her happily snore the evening away.
On the bright side though, Lollipop just came out of the dryer. The raw edges of the quilt applique as you quilt circles are raveling nicely, giving the quilt a casual and comfortable feeling. I was having tension issues during the quilting process, but they seemed to have resolved themselves in the wash. I love the butterfly fabric that Sydney chose for the back. I think it will go great with the butterfly pillowcase I made for her a couple of weeks ago.
