Yep. For years, Jim and I have made fun of people walking around with their heads glued to their cell phones, oblivious to the world around them. Zombies.
Well my new iPhone 6s plus came a month early, and I’m totally smitten! No, I’m not going to start walking around texting people, nor am I going to forget my manners and be on my phone during dinner with friends, but suddenly, magically, I have this device that fits into my hand, that will make phone calls, receive texts, take awesome photographs, stunning video, play puzzles, store my favorite recipes, give me gps directions anywhere I want to go, play music… and best of all, all my Kindle books are on it!
ONE device! Before, I’d take my phone (which the phone function was all that still worked on it), my Kindle, my iPod, my camera, and possibly my camcorder with me when I’d go places. Now, all that fits into the palm of my hand, and the size of the plus screen makes it so that I can read it (albeit with glasses). Heaven!
I did however, have my first socially ignorant faux pas with it. At four thirty this morning, right before I fixed Jim his breakfast, I sent a group of friends on Facebook a message asking whomever had my brochures from last Saturday to bring them to our quilt group tonight…. NOT having a clue that the Facebook Messenger app operates just like a text.. and their phones would DING an alert. At four thirty. In the morning.
Yeah, I’m not going to be so popular tonight.
I finished quilting my quilt this morning! It’s always nice to trim the quilt and have it be perfectly square before trimming anything away… not something I can achieve every time, it depends on how square or wonky the top is before I quilt it, but certainly my goal for each quilt.
It’s not very often that I use a light quilting thread, but on this quilt I chose a shade of green so pale it was almost ivory.
Now to cut the binding and get it sewn on. And hope I have enough fabric! My top is 84 x 84 inches, and I have enough fabric for nine strips of fabric. It’s going to be close….
There might be enough of this fabric, paired with a background fabric from my stash, to make a toddler quilt. I should probably do that before the fabric gets added to my scrap drawers!
