On the way home, Whole Foods. Went in for strawberries and yogurt and ended up treating myself to a shellfish dinner. Mussels and clams on the grill. Since it is just me Tues, Wed, and Thurs, I have enough for tomorrow night's dinner as well.
I cook for myself. I'm a firm believer in good meals and I deserve to be treated well - even if I'm the one doing the treating - LOL. I wouldln't mind having somebody here to clean up after me, but that's in my next life.
For the first time in my life, I am giving two of my quilts to somebody else to quilt. I hate the thought of it, but the last time I quilted a bed-sized quilt it was for my daughter, going off to college - and I did it by HAND. No thanks. So, I am outsourcing it.
What have I been doing in the sewing room (besides cleaning up for a change?) I finished a black and white quilt that, until somebody mentioned how influenced it was by what I saw in Africa, I really hadn't been conscious of it. But now I see it. And I actually want to make a piece that is totally inspired by a South African textile I saw. But "inspired by" does not mean reproducing. I wouldn't want to do that, even if I could.
Maybe tomorrow I will start. I have another piece that is finished but not quilted, but this one I will do myself. It was inspired by ceramics I saw at the museum in Durban.
But for now, I need my Fitbit to keep track of my sleep:-)).
