Today was another gray, rainy, cold, icky day. Went to the dentist and had my teeth cleaned this morning, DH got his braces off (sigh, I have another year). Came home and ate my low residue, bland, little lunch. Decided to load the twin quilt on the frame and get started. So I did. Changed the thread, sewed a sample, it looked good, so I got started quilting. Nice big loopy curves and curly ques. Power went off, on, off, on, off, and on again. Finished the first pass (about 1/6 of the quilt), advanced the quilt in the frame, and there it was. A nice tight bobbin thread and loopy top thread on the back. Well, poop. OK, big sigh, take a break, fix dinner, clean up. Start frog stitching. I got about half of it out when Biggest Loser came on, so stopped for the evening. Gotta work tomorrow, so won't have any time to work on it. Thursday I'll finish the frog stitching, work on the tension, and start over.
On a happier note, the diverticulitis is much better!
