    Well, that was fairly painless. Cut and now being bathed in Marcus’s wonderful laundry liquid. Then I get to paint! :D

    Thanks! Yeah, it’s a pain for me because I don’t enjoy that particular aspect of what I do. If I could just embroider and paint, and have someone else do all the pain in the arse stuff, I’d be happier. Oh well, has to be done.

    See, everyone needs Minions. :-)

    I would have recommended the rats, but you’ve documented their “helpfulness” so nevermind….

    Oh the rats would be happy to help. They are always happy to help. :D We just have different goals in mind.

    Time to iron!

    I find the beginning, not the end, of a project to be the exciting part. Usually I think it through so mich that actually doing it is anticlimactic. Maybe that is a difference between an artist and an engineer.

    Wine. Yes, wine. I have a lovely Spanish Garnacha in the kitchen calling my name, I can hear it clearly.

    Remember!! Wine and scissors do not mix!!! So drink the wine; that’ll keep them apart.

    About 15 or so years ago, my brother-in-law and his wife asked Wife to make them a quilt. She said yes, but only with a caveat: they had to do all the cutting.

    So she laid out, on paper, the squares for a log cabin quilt with one foot squares, and one inch fabric strips. She sent it to BiL, and about a year-and-a-half later, the strips arrived. And, by the photos included, involved three stitches on one finger and one stitch on another finger (and, according to BiL, those were only the bad cuts). The quilt — all whites, tans and browns, with orange and red flowers, paisleys, and other designs — came out beautifully. It hangs on the wall in their living room.

    I asked her if she could do a quilt like that for us. Only if I do the cutting.

    Not going to happen.

    Unless I can get some minions.

    :Laughs: Yeah, I’m with your wife, someone else has to do the cutting. There’s no way in hell I’m cutting all those tiny bits.
