As a nurse I usually work Monday-Friday so I rarely have a Friday off, but today was an unexpected gift of being flexed off work due to low census!! So what do I do?
QUILT OF COURSE.
I'm loading a split 9-patch variation that mom pieced into my frame to quilt. I spent the morning cleaning my long arm table and rails, cleaning my machine and giving her a good oiling. Warmed her up then loaded the quilt to get started. This maintenance takes times but it pays off in a smooth running machine. "Sweetpea" loves her maintenance and rewards me with some great quilting. This is a top that I will be using in a lecture I will be giving later in the year.
Just being in my studio is uplifting. I have some music playing and all is well!
