Well, today started later than usual for me (slept in until after noon) ... but has been quiet and pleasant for all that. After a light eat and wake up shower, I went back to sewing on my table runner project.
For whatever reason, I got the idea to piece the back of this runner, too, so that it can be 'reversible.' I had one left over patchwork hexagon unit so I used that as a template to cut ten larger hexes of Daiwabo prints to assemble for the back. I'm thinking I will finish the edges with a 'pillowcase' seam, including a batting, and that the runner will be quilted together after the outside edges are clean finished.
This is a lot more fussy than I usually get with a small project like this (it would be quicker and easier to just make a back and baste/quilt/bind the runner) ... but it feels 'right' somehow. Darned inanimate objects talking back to their creator! LOL!
I managed to cut all the large hexes from medium to dark value prints and sew about half together before I ran out of energy this afternoon. We did have some nice sunshine and apparently the temperatures were mild out ... but I just looked at it through the living room window, didn't go out at all. I think it is going to take a while for my energy to perk up again in the wake of this virus. Sigh.
I like how the patchwork backing is looking so far. Maybe I'll be able to finish sewing the thing together tomorrow.
Other than that little bit of work, I've not done anything substantial today .... am reading and no even working on my afghan. Couldn't muster the energy to watch tv, even - just being very quiet and trying to rekindle energy. :P
I got a chance to talk to my niece Stephanie this evening. Good to hear her voice. :) Tomorrow is my beloved daughter's birthday so I hope to call her to chat (fingers crossed). Wish those teleport machines on Star Trek were real!
