Here it is Wednesday evening...and I'm typing up (do we say "typing" anymore?) this post waiting for American Idol to begin! I never made it back to the beach last week like I had hoped...however, I did manage to get 4 quilts quilted and worked on MY Easter egg quilt. I also took in 3 new quilts and have calls from two other quilters who will be dropping off more in the next day or two. I keep pinching myself....I'm loving this!
I just finished up the last two days as Chief Proctor for the National Optometry Board. I do this 4 times a year administering exams to students finishing up their last couple years in med school. I meet so many smart and appreciative people. With that said...I guess that is why Monday came and went without new weekly goals!
Last week I quilted this quilt for my friend, Susan. Susan decided she would like to try using wool for batting. It is wonderful! Light weight, so if you love the heaviness of a quilt....maybe wool's not for you....but it is warm, breaths, quilts marvelously, and even though it looks thin, it has a definite loft to it. And....through a very reliable source, I have been told wool does not have a memory, therefore when it is folded up, which I know we all do with our quilts, we can unfold them and no creases!! Cool huh?!
