I'm just slogging through my week, there's no other word for it. John's job search is proceeding. My folks are here, too, which is very good but throws off my pace, such as it is.
What I seem to be doing well with is crafting. I'm flying through a sweater vest for John, just finishing up the left front. I finished the back last week.
I'm almost done with a door quilt for our back door, too. We have an odd little enclosed back porch, sorta like a mud room. It's long and skinny and un-insulated. Cold just comes pouring into the kitchen from that room.
We have had a series of accordion doors on it over the last 20 years. The first one lasted ten years; the next one lasted 5 years; and the last one less than a year. Ah, cheap Chinese crap, I love you so.
The area is too cramped for any kind of hinged door, and we just don't have the money to build a pocket door of some kind right now. Replacing the accordion door every ten months is not an option, and doesn't really keep out the cold that well.
So I took an old mattress pad we had, sandwiched it with blue gingham on one side and a rustic green-on-cream garden catalog print on the other, and quilted it "prairie sashiko-style"--navy yarn in a long running stitch, making a wide grid pattern. I'm currently putting on the binding the same way. I need a third packet of quilt binding before I can finish.
Now I just have to figure out how to hang it; it's HEAVY! And if it doesn't work out? It's a great throw.
