I hope you had a great National Quilting Day yesterday. I spent the day making 144 HSTs. I spent the morning marking the squares. Then after an early nap and lunch I sewed them together. DH is home from 12 days in Europe and I didn't want him to feel left alone. So I brought my cutting mat, rotary cutter, ruler, ironing board and iron downstairs so I could work in the dining room and living room while spending time with him.
The HSTs with the tan fabric are for my Football Depression quilt. These are all that I need to make for the quilt. There are enough HSTs for four Depression blocks and then I'll be able to finish that quilt top.
The HSTs with the white, paw covered fabric are for my mom's Churn Dash quilt. There are 80 HSTs done and I need to make another 56 so I have enough for the quilt.
I have had my license for using sharp objects in the kitchen revoked. Yesterday afternoon I was slicing cheese and apples for a snack and sliced my right thumb with the apple slicer. This morning I was cleaning up some odds and ends from last night's dinner and sliced my left hand just below the thumb. Neither cut required stitches, but I am feeling a little stupid. DH is going to have to cut the squash for dinner tonight. I am refusing to touch any sharp objects in the kitchen.
Miscellaneous, off-the-wall, question of the day. Do you have a double basin kitchen sink? If so, which side do you use for washing dishes? Our new condo has a double basin sink and I haven't had one in years. The house I grew up in had a double sink and the dishes were washed in the right side, rinsed on the left side and then left to drain on the left side counter. In our new kitchen I use the left side for washing and the right side for rinsing. Clean dishes are put away immediately. So tell me, how do you use your kitchen sink?
