We always have the furnace's fan on to make the air circulate otherwise it gets muggy in the house. I was starting to feel it already. The power has been out for only 2 hours so far . Oh Gosh!
Got the kettle and stepped outside to heat the water the old fashion way.
There was a slight breeze but it was very humid. Yuck! Not opening the window. So now that I am armed with my coffee, what am I supposed to do? Can't finish laundry; can't bake breakfast. It's a good thing I did some muffins last night.
I don't want to clean, it's Sunday morning. There's NO cleaning on Sunday morning! I've done enough on Saturday of that. It is getting so humid in the basement, it is now to the point of annoying me. I'm glistening, hahaha! Gosh, I need air.
Okay, let's find something to do. Think of something else. Then I spotted my new die-cut. Oh fun! Let's give this baby a try.
I haven't played with my big Sizzix in such a long time, it was dusty. Put some scrap on it and turned the handle. And ta-dah!Eh! What?
It didn't cut all the way through. What's with this? Well, that deflated my balloon quick enough, thank you. Took everything up and placed it back on the dusty shelf.
Siiiiggghhhhhhhhhh! What now? (The silence is deafening.) Oh, there's something.
I could kit some blocks from the 365 Challenge. I could use them as my leader-ender blocks. I haven't worked on this one in a very long time. Grab the box and oh, yes, it's dusty too, hahaha. Then, ... it dawn on me! The patterns are in the computer which is powered by ... ugh! electricity! ARRRRGH! Double triple darn!!
Come back electricity, I need you. I need my usual Sunday ritual. (gosh, maybe I am more OCD than I thought) And this silence is getting on my nerves!!! I need to get busy, think of something else than the lack of sounds. Let's get another coffee.
The amount of dew this morning made it impossible to sit outside, which was a bummer because, by this time, it was nicer out. I'm thinking of all the slow stitching projects joining Kathy's place and ... oh wait! ... I DO have a slow stitching project. YAY!! Let's get that.
I unfold my Quilt of the Century and (cough, cough) it is so dusty. It has been waiting for some attention since August 31, 2016. Yep, two years, almost to the day.
Now, Michelle from the Wednesday Sewing Club told me to add three hexagon on the sides to make them straighter. It will be easier to attached the last border to it. Sigh. Why have I removed them in the first place? Don't remember! Anywho!
Good thing I never got the chance to undo them as I am now piecing these back to the quilt. Ironic? (I am surprise at the speed I located these pieces, wow! Maybe I am more organized than I thought.)
But now that I have something to keep my hands busy, I feel better. :^) It's Sunday Zen Time again!! Ahhhh!
I'll join Kathy (Slow Sunday Stitching) and Cynthia (Oh Scrap!) whenever the electricity gets back.
Happy Sunday Morning to all.
