It's Wendesday once again and, well, you know that it means a progress report.
I have started work on the last border of the bias tape quilt. The material is a length of beautiful Jinny Beyer border fabric and I am simply quilting along the outline of the pattern.
Anyone who has done this kind of quilting knows that it can be quite tedious, however pretty the design. To turn the boring work more interesting I am listening to audio books. Right now I am enjoying Stephen Fry as he reads the Harry Potter stories.
Another pastime for longish quilting sessions is to let my thoughts wander, sometimes without a plan, or I set myself a Question. E.g. Why and since when do I like purple? or Is it OK to cross the street when the light is red but no cars are coming? It was after reading the Alexander McCall Smith's Isabel Dalhousie stories I started this highly private 'The Quilty Philosophy Club'.
How do YOU spend time while doing a boring job?
WIPW, Work In Progress Wednesday, an excellent idea of Sharon Boggon of Pintangle, means that you 'show and tell' about your progress on an ongoing needlework project. Take a picture, write a line, or two, post it on your blog and then put a link in the comments field on Sharon's WIPW post for the week. It is interesting to follow fellow needleworkers' work, share tips and ideas, give and get encouragement. This is a good way to turn that UFO into an FO.
