What am I noting on tattoo Tuesday?

March 19, 2019

Saturday (third Saturday in March) was National Quilting Day.  What was I doing?

My stay-at-home recovery time from knee surgery has given me the opportunity to pick up a hand-quilting project that has been hanging around for a while.  It is a block of the month quilt with quotations that I like in the “signature” areas.  There is still a lot of border to finish, but now I can see that completion may actually happen.  It is nice to sit with the quilt on my lab as I sew.  Cmdr. Sam Vimes likes to supervise.

Happy World Quilting Day!

Actually, I am between quilts right now.  My latest one is in a quilt show.  Here is a photo.

There is a nice overview of quilt traditions in different cultures in Wikipedia, here.

Quilting: the occupation where one spends a lot of money buying perfectly good fabric, then spends a lot of time cutting it up, only to sew it back together again.

Cats and knitting.

And my push-me pull-you, 2-headed  cat – Sam-Murphy.

They are also “helping” me quilt.

This is Commander Samuel Vimes helping me sew.  I am piecing a quilt (I’ll show it to you later) and it is apparently just irresistible to Sammy.


What am I shooting?

My new Glock 36.  It works well and fires smoothly.  Took it for a spin on Labor Day at a shoot that was much fun, but very hot.

I have a quilt project I am working on, so I will be taking the Glock to the range soon to help me design some fabric.  Stay tuned for the results.
