Finishing Details

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Today was a day for tying up loose ends — i.e., sewing sleeves, making labels, cutting slats, etc for the 4 quilts that are to be delivered tomorrow night for jurying into the High Fiber Diet elements show.

I have been having a problem with my right knee. I think I twisted it on a walk last week and over the week-end it was a real pain, especially at night when I am in bed. The only thing that helps is wrapping it with ice. I can’t get a Dr. appointment until next week. Mr C suggested I stop taking long walks with Scooter. Whadyaknow!? It is feeling better after two days of rest.

I really enjoyed the SDA meeting yesterday. It was very busy here with laptops whirring as we uploaded head shots and images of work for about 8 SDA members in Portland/Vancouver area. Susan Taber Avila was here to help. She is an amazing fiber artist from Oakland and on the SDA Board. She also teaches at UC Davis.

And, I am caught up on 3 x 3s.
