A Perfect Day

Good morning, all! Cold winter weather seems far, far away when sipping coffee out of my Key West coffee cup. Mmmm.

I'm in a particularly happy mood today. Maybe that's because Thursday was just doggone near perfect, I tell you. I had no obligations - a rarity, and so I determined that I would multi-task on things I wanted to do. I have a book on Overdrive that I needed to be listening to for book club. I also had sewing that I wanted to work on. Off I went to the sewing room.

What I was trying to sew was blocks to surround my Flag Day Farm panel. Finally, I am working on it! The 4-patch blocks are made with a couple of Minick and Simpson lines.
Unfortunately, I couldn't hear the recording while the sewing machine was running. Bummer. To fix that problem, I set Flag Day Farm aside, and put up the quilting frame that I took down for the holidays. I quilted while listening. Perfect.

In due time; in due time.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

Jayne,

My son bought me a small external speaker that plugs into my tablet. It really amplifies the sound so I can listen while I sew.

I love those days with no obligations where you can just glide through at your own pace.

I haven't had nearly enough of them in the last couple of years, something I am actively trying to fix :}

Sounds like a perfect day to me. I hope you can have more of them this year.
