miles. Yes, it took me 10 rides, but just the same. I started biking two weeks ago. My friend, Sonja, rode with me yesterday.
"Have you bought any more sewing machines?" she asked as we pedaled along.
"Oh, sewing machines are so passee." I joked. "I am a cycling maven, these days!"
Truth is, I want to get back in the shop. I just haven't had the time. OK I haven't taken the time. I really love cycling and honestly, to cycle 10 miles takes 90 minutes. We live in the country and the best bicycle riding is along the road, one valley over. The hill between here and there is a
K I L L E R. I know I could walk some of it and ride some of it. It is just more pleasant to burn a little diesel and drive over, park and pedal happily along.
Yesterday we rode for 20 miles. Add that to the twenty miles from Wednesday. Did you get Forty? Aren't you smart. I spent the afternoon on the couch yesterday and barely had energy for quilting. By three, though, I was up and at the quilt frame.
I managed to keep it pretty square as I advanced the quilt.
Ruler work is improving. OK. My technique is improving. I don't stop and start so much and am faster with the machine. But I don't get the stitches in the ditch. That's ok. This is a practice quilt and I am being very kind to myself.
