Ah, April. Let the Winter Count show that I finished a quilt that month, the well-documented manhole design, which now lives with Amanda Page because she won the first ever Hat on Top contest. Maybe someday there’ll be a second contest, but right now I don’t have any plans for one. Right now I’d just be happy to finish a project. I started quilting a baby quilt over the weekend and got so frustrated with myself and my sewing machine that I was about ready to rip out all stitches and start over. I did rip and redo some small sections; as for the rest, I’m really, really hoping this is a case of I’m my own worst critic and the recipient won’t care that the stippling is so screwed up.
One year ago? Skiing, not writing.
Two years ago? Ditto.
Three years ago, I was dithering about window treatments. We eventually got top down/bottom up blinds for all the windows at Home Depot, choosing Levelor because they were the only brand that offered anything in purple, which I very much wanted for our bedroom.
