Well, shame isn't working, and it's not really any fun at the moment, so I'm giving up on Shoelace for the time being. I'll finish the PV edits--I really do have to do those--instead. And work on the Petra outline. And figure out what quilts I'll be doing until the end of the year. I started on the templates for WUALF and the Penrose quilt last night, but I won't be finishing the latter this year. And I have one definite Christmas project. That leaves a space of about two months to do a quilt for my other aunt, but only if they actually, you know, want one; for this big a project I'm thinking I'm going to ask first. And if they only want a lap quilt rather than a bed quilt it would be much easier, and more doable in two months. I can, but I'm not sure I want to. Or I can make one for me that'll actually cover my bed. What do people who don't have any hobbies do in their spare time? Probably take care of the yard. I didn't. I'll try to this week, though, as I ought to have the grass cut again sometime soon. I love deep summer when the grass doesn't grow, though.
I finished Sunshine. My only real complaint is that her introspective description of the world goes on for too long between bits of action, and even that isn't so bad. It's a delightful book. I'm now working on The King's Cavalier, a really old book I picked up...somewhere...that was part of my unread books stack. I like old books, and this one's pretty well-written. I've been on a read-new-books phase recently. I hope it lasts.
Oh, yeah. After a season of bug-eaten leaves, I have morning glories! I glanced out my back window on the way to the car and two brilliant blue blooms stared back at me. They're beautiful. Tonight I have to look and see whether the evening glories also lived.
