I bleed for the best

If you’re wondering who is affected by the power going out in California due to the PG&E outages, the answer is ME.

My house has no power.

Needless to say I have some strong feelings on the matter regarding the giving of millions of dollars in bonuses to PG& E executives while aging infrastructure isn’t maintained properly.

The power has been off for nearly two days now and I had to go to Tejas’ house nearby to take a shower.

Le sigh.

Anyway, what did I do while the power was out?

I cut fabric for a quilt.

I discovered my old method of cutting fabric on the floor wouldn’t work for me because it gave me SUCH AN ACHE IN MY BACK I was walking like a grandma when I stood up.

So I had to modify my kitchen table to accommodate my cutting and thankfully, that seemed to do the trick.

I just can’t sit on the floor, bent over a mat, cutting fabric anymore.

So I managed to cut all my fabric, even the 100 white triangles that I COMPLETELY forgot about until I was getting ready to put things away.

One thing did happen though.

I cut my index finger on my rotary blade while cutting fabric thereby ensuring that this quilt will be magnificent.

I bleed for all the best quilts.

One thought on “I bleed for the best

  1. Yikes! It’s crazy how dangerous a rotary cutter is, or even some quilting scissors. I used to be so nervous when mom decided to cut fabric the last months of her life. I was sure she’d injure herself, thankfully she didn’t!
    May you heal well and the blood wash out from the fabric! Out damn spot!
