Today is definitely a lazy day. I was going to run an errand and still may though I may get rained on. Dreary and gray will rule the day today I think. In the meantime I’ve been doing a bit of tidying of my sewing mess and my kitchen mess and going though videotapes and dvds making a pile of movies I don’t want to keep so that maybe the ones I do want to keep will fit on the bookshelves.
There’s more ladybug blocks to make but I think watching a movie and some knitting might take place first. After sitting and sewing for so long yesterday I think some shopping for a new chair for my sewing room is definitely in order. This one is NOT comfortable. I’ll have to put that on my list of things to shop for — finding one that is adjustable high enough is always a challenge.
Rainy days are great for baking chocolatey things — darn the quilting elves apparently had me shut in the sewing room so they could eat everything chocolatey that was here. Yes – I may need to take a change of getting rained on and add something chocolatey to my shopping list.

Being held hostage by the quilting elves!
Okay not really but is it a good thing to get a second wind about 1 a.m.? I was digging through some quilt tops to decide what I want to layer first to quilt on. Then decided I’d figure out if I really had enough of the fabrics I had pulled for the ladybug quilt. Didn’t, so resized the quilt a bit to work with the fabrics I had. Then decided maybe I’d just cut some of the pieces out. Well you know that led to maybe I’ll sew just one block of each style…….. but two blocks of each style would give me a better idea of how I like it. ROFLOL It’s 4 a.m. – the quilting elves have fallen asleep so I can escape from the sewing room as soon as I finish this post.
I like them – it will be a really cute quilt. I may end up making the larger size version I originally had later — it think the same blocks would look nice out of that stack of oriental style fabrics I have.
But that’s enough ladybug sewing for tonight — my sewing chair needs to be turned in for something more comfortable!
I also make great progress on Dad’s scarf earlier this evening (or yesterday as the case may be). Here it is with one ball of yarn knit into it. The colors in the photo look just a bit brighter than reality from the flash. But I love the color combination.
