I swear I had plans for last night. I’m in the middle of a Sparkle Punch Lap Quilt for a friend’s mom who donated bags and bags of fabric to my stash, and I really wanted to make some progress on it. But even before the rain started – my lights were out. How does that even work? I will never understand the power grid here in Hammond. So instead, I sat in the dark and read. The lights were out for a good 3 hours or so , just enough to start getting all gross and muggy. Bleh.
Yesterday wasn’t all bad though – I got my Charm packs in the mail! I’m a couple years into this whole quilting thing – but I’m completely self-taught. So there’s a LOT of gaps in my knowledge base – and as a solution I’m taking an online class with my mom. We’re starting from the beginning over at Craftsy, taking the Quilting Quickly class. I’m pretty excited about it. In retrospect, I probably should have gotten some coordinating solids – this little quilt is going to be super busy!
