Well, the motivation dust was wearing off for sure. I woke up a bit sluggish today and with a sore back, but I relaxed with some coffee, ibuprofin and the laptop. By 7:30, I was ready to meander my way downstairs to load Star Path onto the quilt frame and see how far I could get by the time I needed to drop off Candace and Caitlyn to a play-date at 10:00.
QOV Mystery #28: Star Path (65" x 75")
A nice, small quilt was enjoyable after having had two King size quilts on the frame recently.
Binding has not been completed yet, but I set it aside for now because I was in the mood to sit for a bit. My back was a bit achy despite having taken the ibuprofin :(
Star Harbor (57"x72")
So, I pulled out Star Harbor and worked on the final inner border and the outside border. Fabrics were gathered and sewn into a backing right away.......and early this afternoon I even loaded it all up on the quilting frame.
I would LOVE to say that I quilted it up lickity-split, but I was fading fast. Pooper-doopered out. And KILLLLER back ache!
As I was packing up, I heard a chirp-chirp-chirp rukus. One of the adolescents (no longer babies!) was out walking around on the cement walk-out. I'm sure s/he was looking for some bugs or worms after the bit of rain we received.
After dinner, I was guilted a little bit into heading out to the garden, (after taking a couple more ibuprofin), so I picked a few ripe cucumbers and tomatoes, and also gave the younger tomato plants a much needed haircut. There was one easily over 5 feet tall!
I'm now relaxing with the Olympics. My back is finally feeling better....I think the ibuprofin is finally permeating the muscles. Plus, the Icy-Hot I rubbed on it has a wonderful relaxing aspect too ;)
