I love Rain. Random I know but I do and right now it is raining. I've been hoping for it all week. Everyday I wake up and it is cloudy and I think maybe it will rain today and then it is just windy. I love the sound of it. Home in Idaho I love the smell of it. If it hasn't rained in a while and there is a lot of dust when it starts to rain. Do you know that smell? I love it. I'm weird that way. I also love the smell of spud cellars.
Anyway, you'd be proud of me. Yesterday I spent most of the day in my sewing room sewing strips of material together and then when that was done I cut a lot of material. I'm not done cutting but last night after Young Women's I brought down what I have and laid it on the floor and started pinning. It is going to look really cool. I can't show pictures yet because this is a gift to someone who might read my blog. I can share pictures in about a month. I know, I know that is so far away to be waiting for a picture. It will be worth it.
I love sewing quilts. I just need to make more of them. I told you a while ago that I bought froggy material to make a quilt and it is still sitting in the bag upstairs in my sewing room. I plan on starting it when we get back from our vacation later. I'll keep you posted on that.
On a side note does anyone know where I can find instructions for a really old Singer sewing machine. I kind of inherited one and other than a tune up I can't even figure out how to load the bobbin. I've tried a lot of different things and it doesn't seem to like me. I thought if I could find something online then maybe I would have to have it tuned.
Well I need to get back to work. If I work hard today I should have the top of the quilt (minus the boarders) sewn together. That is my goal. I wont it to the point that I can sandwich it this weekend so next week I can start free motion stitching it.
Have a great day. I hope it rains wherever you are if you need the rain like we do.
