I have a little problem with being able to just sit. If I’m not knitting, my mind wanders. The Genius is the same way. She knit through some of high school and a lot in college.
As I said in yesterdays post, I was just going to sit in the sun and knit. I couldn’t do it. I started thinking about how I was going to put the trees on that ginormous quilt, and I had to just go do it! I sat in the sun for maybe 45 minutes.
I got my stuff together and headed back to My Hero’s office. I started working on the quilt at 1:30 and worked until 9:30. Fortunately, My Hero was willing to grab some takeout to feed the kids!
Here’s what I had at 9:30.
It looks a little desolate now, but imagine it covered with lots of leaves! I think there will be a nest in the tree with birds in it. It’s hard to see on the picture, but there are four colors of brown in the tree. I may add more texture to the trunk, but the machine quilting will do a much better job of that as well.
This morning I feel like I got hit by a truck. Half of that eight hour stint was spent crawling around on the floor and getting pieces in the right places.
Maybe today I’ll just sit…and knit!
