Fine Friday

Spent the day at my d#1's again helping her adjust and care for Baby G, who is growing and eating and sleeping like crazy. She's almost cuter than my own two babies were - yes, she is.

Last night after running 4+ miles in warm, humid weather, I finished the borders for the wonky star/log cabin quilt top, cut and pieced together a back - all the same fabric but it had to be wider than the 42" fabric, and cut batting. I got the backing loaded onto the frame and want to put the top and batting on tonight, and might start quilting it - it's only 8 p.m.

Tomorrow is the club Big Race - I am looking forward to running and seeing friends, and am not too interested in my time. I am hoping to do at least as well as last year, and it shouldn't be too hard because the forecast is for around 50 deg., cloudy with a light wind. So not too hot and not too cold. I feel tired this week and that will probably be the biggest obstacle. Since I ran with my gear bag from the running program back to my car, trying to beat the parking meter expiration, my right hip joint seems a little sore. Hopefully a good night's sleep will make me feel better.

The rest of the weekend plans include some cleaning, sewing, laundry, making a decent meal or two, planning Sunday school lesson, and preparing for the following week.

That quilt is so neat! I love the colors and the improv. It makes me want to make one of my own now that I've learned how to make wonky log cabins and wonky stars. What a great idea to put them together.

Yes, that was an unusual moment of brilliance! I'll check out your blog to see if you get one made.
