Preparation and maintenance

Today was a preparation and maintenance day. My darling Gladys, the longarm,, needs to be oiled after every project so I did that today.  I like to do it at least one day before I start new quilting.

While I was fiddling around with Gladys I was glancing over at my cutting table where my newest fabrics were spread out.  I like to look at my fabrics, make friends with them and just enjoy the colors before I start.  Today, I cut everything out for the shower presents, ironed some of the projects and changed threads plus filled bobbins.  There is a lot of prep work in sewing but I like to do it all at the beginning so once I start, I can just sew like a fiend.

I wish there was some maintenance I could do on me to get rid of this dang cold!  This is a good day to snuggle under a quilt and do some knitting.  I had purchased some yarn in LaCrosse but discovered I needed another skein, yikes!  Hello Lion Yarns on the internet where I found the exact yarn I wanted plus 3 more that I didn't even know I needed.  I received them all today plus my copy of the book The Bedspread.  Good condition, by the way, is really good!  Great mail day!

With this cold I might just prepare to sleep so this achy body can get some maintenance sleep.  I am prepared to be maintained!
