Hi, all! We had a great, relaxing weekend and I did not get on the computer once (which was a nice break), so please bear with me as I am behind on blog reading. I didn’t do any stitching this weekend either, as I still had my migraine for a portion of the weekend. It has been raining off and on here since last week, so I am sure it is the weather that is getting to me. Eric brought me some flowers on Sunday though, to perk me up.
I did end up sewing a little bit on my Kimono quilt this weekend. I had hoped to finish up the last five kimonos I have left to sew, but I only got two finished. But that is two closer to being finished! I also took two of my quilt tops (that were finished in 2002) to a local quilter to discuss having them quilted for me. As soon as I get the backs pieced, I’ll be dropping those off to her. I will be so glad to have them quilted finally! They are just going to have all-over patterns quilted on them, nothing too fancy.
And finally, the main accomplishment of the weekend. Eric and I decided to spend the weekend watching all six of the Star Wars movies, in honor of the thirtieth anniversary. We’ve never watched all six together, so it was really an experience. Even as many times as I have seen Episodes 4, 5 and 6, they now take on such different meanings with Episodes 1, 2 and 3 before them. I was looking at the relationships between the characters in a different light, which was sort of mind-blowing after thirty years! While watching the movies, I practiced my knitting by working on my garter-stitch scarf. And it is finished! Well, almost finished. I haven’t learned how to end my yarn, etc. so it is finished except for that. Hurrah! I love it. Beginning next Tuesday, I am taking a four-week beginning knitting class. They only offer it during the day, so I’ll be working half days, and taking half a vacation day in order to go to the class. I am so excited! And once I learn how to finish off my scarf, I can cross that off my 101 Things list.
My fabric for Tesori finally came in as well, so in the next week or so I will probably be starting on it and on my Neighborhood RR. In the mean time, I’m hoping to get caught back up my stitching. Happy Tuesday!!
I am grateful for knitting and Star Wars.
