Another inch knit this week. Slow and steady, they will get done. Another slow and steady has been the elliptical machine. Just 5 minutes a day, but every day. In October, I’m planning to increase the time, when other activities calm down. So I push myself for those 5 minutes and 10,000 steps daily thinking I must keep moving or get old.
The all day class I attended today was loaded with information on working with the simulator and setting up the information to send to the quilting machine computer. There is so much to learn and practicing what I learned will help me to really learn it. However since it was a computer type course (in a very cold room), there was nothing of which to take photos.
I started the morning by opening an email that I should not have opened. Then I waited for the Geeksquad to remove the virus or whatever from my computer so I could again use it. After that a phone call to Handiquilter and I believe my machine may be more cooperative.
In between those chores, I did get a pattern copied onto pattern pellon for a jacket. I even was able to get the main pieces cut out of this cotton fabric. It will be a loose, lightweight cotton jacket using the new serger. However, I do not have the right thread, so will pick that up tomorrow.
Off to the grocery briefly for a couple very good watermelons and out to the garden. We picked the funniest shaped carrots. Next year the ground will have to be worked deeper. These poor carrots just could not break through the hardpan. Still they are delicious.
These beets were growing beside the carrots, but since they are shorter, they didn’t have the same troubles. They filled this 4 gallon bucket about 3/4 full. Oh, and there were a few potatoes that were from a potato that was left in the ground over winter. I pulled a beet and harvested 6 potatoes much to my surprise. So we will be enjoying roasted root vegetables.
