Another Random Saturday

I was going to have a craft-y post for you today, but last night I decided not to set an alarm clock - I would sleep in and just let my body wake me up.  Well, it didn't decide to wake me up until 3:45 PM... so no post for you!

Seriously, though, I don't know why I slept so late - I've been getting pretty solid nights of sleep, and I haven't felt sleep-deprived!  Today though I feel like I got hit by a truck.  I'm stiff, I'm slow, I have the most wretched headache, and I feel like I could go straight back to bed and sleep for another week.  I'm not going to do it, though.

It snowed this past week - a whole two inches!  Of course that threw poor little Jackson, Tennessee into a dither - they canceled school, the stores were bought out of bread and milk, and no one would drive anywhere.  This in spite of the fact that the roads were perfectly clear.  Oh, the South.

I'm getting ready to make a quilt for a friend's wedding present.  I won't be posting much about it here because I think she reads my blog and I want the final project to be a surprise (but she does know I'm making it and roughly what the colour scheme is - I asked her!) so I thought I could mention it.  It's going to be pretty blues and yellows, mostly - a "Proven├žal" quilt.  I'm really excited!  I made a mock-up of the quilt block pattern I'll be using since I've never done triangular bits before, and it went together so well.  The fabric is in the washer as I write.  I can't wait to work on it!

Speaking of quilts, I think I'm getting addicted.  This could be a problem...

The big window in the living room of my apartment is beautiful, and it lets in a lot of sunlight, but it also lets in a lot of drafts.  I'm thinking I need to make some sort of draft-resistant curtain, or at least some of those window snakes, but I'm really not sure what to do, or how.  Any ideas?

It's now exactly three months until my senior recital.  Three months from now, almost to the minute, I'll be putting the last touches to my hair and makeup, slipping on the gown, and trying not to be nervous.

Maybe I should memorize all my music.  Yeah.  I think I'll go work on that.

  1. Pretty sounding quilt :) Can't wait for pictures!

    As for the drafty window, my mom made, literally, a quilt to cover a huge picture window. It was a whole-fabric quilt with ivory fabric (cheap) and regular low-loft batting. She machine quilted it in big squares and ran a couple pull-strings. It did the job beautifully! It was economical, too. I think it's still up now, 15 years later (but I haven't looked in a while).
