Sewing and comic books.
I bought a sewing machine and this quilt top is mostly machine pieced. Because there are so many biased pieces, it's a bit wonky. Will need dense quilting to keep it flattish. Since this picture was taken, it's been pin basted to batting and backing. The backing is just white muslin. Some time ago, I bought a whole bolt of white muslin. It'll come in handy.
I've also signed up for an intro to sewing class. It starts next week. Am very excited. Mostly I want to make quilts, bags, and clothes for the baby and simple dresses for me.
Have also started reading Birds of Prey comics, set in Gotham City. Not sure yet what I think of it. But it's written by Gail Simone, whose tweets show a lot of feminism, so I'm persevering. Plus, I got them from the library.
In other news, it's insanely hot in Atlanta. But today it's actually hovering near only 90 deg F, so I've turned off the air conditioning and opened the patio door for some fresh air.
