I like this quilt better in the picture than I do in person. I probably will set it aside for awhile. Yes, that is a deliberate choice with the incomplete purple inner border since my rows were different lengths. I think it adds character.
This is what I am working on. Think I'm calling it Stars on Blue. I can never remember what I've named quilts, so it could change several times. I started out with regular quilting thread, but then decided to use white perle cotton size 8 instead.
It's always difficult transitioning from the small stitches that I used on my last project to the larger that I use with this thicker thread. The stitches are loosening up as I go along.
I've discovered the joy of free podcasts on iTunes. Woohoo. This is the first time I've had access to a fast enough internet connection. I tried a quilting podcast, but was bored. Instead I'm loading up on NPR and some geeky things (Buffy episode discussions...). I'm listening at the computer and while it's not ideal, I am quilting.
I have a nasty headache, but at least it drove me to make an appointment with the doctor. I'm going tomorrow, so fingers crossed I get fixed up. Hopefully before I take the power drill to my head in an attempt to relieve the pressure.
I ordered some Feliway today to see if that helps the kitties. My thanks to those of you who recommended it and to PetCo for shipping to an APO.
I changed my display name, thanks everybody for letting me know how to do it.
