How I spent the FDOW 2014 (First Day Of Winter)
It didn’t really take ALL DAY. It just felt as if it did. I had some Warm Window fabric left over from the house project. It is taking up room in the sewing loft. In an effort to reduce, re-use and recycle, I decided that today would be a good day to make a couple of window treatments for the guest apartment. I am spending a fair amount of time out there quilting. I like it warm, oddly enough, when I work. Given that it is now winter (Hark! The first day is today!) baby it’s cold out there.
I turn the heat up, of course, and then turn it off when I will not be using the space for several days. For those days when I can get out there to quilt, I want to conserve. While Cuomo, not my favorite politician [now there’s an oxymoron], banned Fracking in NY, it is in everyone’s best interests to conserve. I am just trying to do my part. I turn the heat down to 50 F at night and poke it back up to 65 F in the morning on days when I can play with my Bailey (which I am appreciating more now that I have priced other Long Arm Quilters, such as the HQ 16.)
I have four more to go. I am not thrilled with this result. It will fit the bill and the others will be better as I remember better how I did it the first time around.
