At least I've had some beautiful morning sunrises to view out my big sliding glass window. Although I would prefer the view were to the West for amazing sunsets, MY West view is of a hill topped with a couple houses.
I just love it when the sun rises over the desert and mountains. Pictures just don't do it justice at all.
Once calm and relaxed like after taking a Yoga class, I began the task at hand. Another Put-Together. Who would have thought I needed Furniture Making 101 classes. These bungee chairs from the Container Store are the BOMB!! Except that is, for the one day I got my thumbs stuck when I got up. No, I've no idea why my thumbs were in between the cords. Remove hands before rising.
Luckily the first one I purchased was already put together. This one came in a box. RATS!! The hardest part was trying to figure out which way the cylinder went. Directions on that point were a little skimpy.
With it finally together ... the base, the cylinder, the seat and finally the back ... I gingerly sat down. It didn't fall apart, so I hit the lever underneath to raise it up and VOILA!! I have a sewing chair!!
That's when I discovered there's part of my machine missing. There's a put-together piece that snaps on giving you a wide sewing area. As it is, my sewing area is about two inches wide. Not so good. Alas, there's nothing I can do for the time being.
Here's my ASKEW quilt ... another Put-Together. I was pretty leery cutting up all this beautiful fabric into crazy shapes with no pattern whatsoever.
I tried laying one out to see if this was really going to work, or if I just wasted $80 worth of material. Sure enough, I think I have a winner. Once I sew this and cut it down to a 10" square, I'll have my block. Only 47 more to go!! I know, it's a weird one.
The weather has warmed up to 38 degrees, but the Vail Gale has come again in earnest. I have a large beautiful tree with the biggest spikes on it I've ever seen that needs to be trimmed. It's hitting the corner of the house, enough to wake me up at 3:30. By 4:30 I got up. There's no use trying to go back to sleep just to have horrible nightmares (it never fails). When the wind stops, the tree limbs are HISTORY!!
