It rained last night. A lot! Pretty strong thunderstorms here in Lansing but other parts of Michigan were hit harder, hail and tornadoes. Gardening in wet soil is never a good thing because it compacts the soil so I decided to work indoors today.
It has been so long since I worked at the quilt frame that I really had to warm up.
The way I guilt I am most comfortable quilting away from myself and to the right (could be because I am left-handed). In a hoop I simply turn the hoop to change directions but the frame is stationary so I have to change the direction I am quilting. The result being that I was a bit slower until I got back into the rhythm. I made my way across the frame once and cranked it up to the next area to quilt.
Teddy likes to sit in my chair when I get up.
It was sunny most of the day so the garden dried and I did some pruning and weeding. Nothing like the piles of the new garden but it is always amazing to me how fast things grow,
