Six stitches forward, one stitch back

I started sewing the blocks of my quilt together tonight and it looks really good.  I’m pleased with the way the design turned out, and I am confident that I will be able to sew it together into true quilt form successfully.

I have to take out a long row of stitches for two large chunks I just sewed together, unfortunately.  One of the pieces wasn’t rotated correctly so I need to take it out and put it back in.  Nothing too fancy, just time consuming.  I will remember to confirm the colors of the blocks are lined up right before pinning it when working on the rest of the quilt, at least.

My class starts in a week so I need to get as much completed as I can before Monday, and my schedule is clear to be able to do it.  Dog and I are on our own until Thursday – the live-in butler is on a trip to San Jose (I do give him a few weeks off every year, he works hard and deserves a vacation), the downstairs neighbors are in Europe, and my brother is on a business trip.  So it’s just the dog, 50 square feet of fabric, and me.

    Wow… sounds quite lonesome. Wanna watch Harry Potter the First tomorrow night? That german girl anna and her b/f are bringing it. The plan is to get caught up on all of them before the next movie comes out.

    No thanks, I’m going to keep working on the quilt so that I can come close to finishing it before my class starts. If I were 8-10 hours further I could bring the quilt with me for the tying part. For that part I need only a needle, embroidery thread, and the quilt sandwich and I could do it while watching a movie.
