We had an inch and a half of rain beginning about 4:00 pm yesterday and continuing into the night. More is forecast for today. The weather more or less fits the day. It looks sad.
I spent a lot of time again yesterday trying to update my virus protection program again. Finally ended up reinstalling it again! That isn't hard to do, but it takes over 4 hours to download the updates.
I didn't go outside at all yesterday, so no new shots of the crabapple tree. I did, however, do some quilting. I'm still trying to use up squares, strips, small pieces of fabric before I buy anything. Most of these strips were already cut. I did have to get out a piece of fabric to cut the border and the corners, but they were scraps, too. Not enough to make anything. This is going to be a pillow top.
Here's my layout for the back of the pillow. I like to make pillows so they can be used on either side. I got all of these triangle squares stitiched together, and added a green checked border, but somehow I miss calculated, and it isn't wide enough! Now I have to decide if I want to take it off and start over, or just add another border. I have to work for four days in a row, beginning today, so I will have plenty of time to think about it. Last night, I was all for taking in off, but this morning I'm leaning toward adding another border. I already had all of the blue squares cut out, leftovers from other projects, I guess. The light colored squares are all from the same fabric. It is some leftover scraps that someone gave me. It is all in little strips and pieces. I want to make some more place mats using this design. I have a pile of blue and white strips that need to be used. That might be interesting.
Time to get my lunch put together and get myself to work. I think we are going to be busy today.
