I am not a robot

And if I were, I wouldn't have a stupid dodgy leg that hurts when I sit down to the sewing machine for more than 5 minutes at a time.  Luckily I am waiting for the cavalry to arrive with my extra fabric, so I can take things a bit slower than I would otherwise want to.  I have sewn together some of my bits but now am going to pause until the post delivers.


Following the discussion about the horizontal strips I have trimmed quite a bit off the one that is sitting at bottom left (and of course will lose another little bit in the seam).  It looks much better, not so heavy now, and I am watching out where I need these strips to make sure I don't make the same mistake again.

In the meantime I am playing around with ideas and drafting a post or two for AHIQ - only a week to go now!  

As for the title of this post - I don't mind comment verification, understanding that it serves a purpose.  For a while I was even enjoying it, particularly when I was invited to identify 'all the cakes' or 'all the bread'.  Picking out street signs was less fun, but I discovered that if you got it wrong, they sent you back to foodstuffs.  But now, heaven help me, they are asking me to identify 'all the commercial trucks'.  Firstly, don't care about trucks of any description AT ALL, secondly I didn't even know there was such a thing as a non-commercial truck (am I particularly ill-informed or is it a more American thing?).  A robot has as good a chance of getting this right as I have.

  1. Visiting from Let's Bee Social. Love your progress. I also hate the trucks. Ugly pictures. I think desserts would be better. Hope your leg feels better soon.

  2. How annoying! You would think that the people designing these things would pick non-regional based questions. If I had to answer that one, I would think they're asking about the big box trucks; a pick-up truck would probably be a non-commercial truck. Love seeing your wall grow! (And getting fabric in the mail! ;) )

  3. Love how this quilt is coming together - so many combinations you could choose, but the one you do will be just right!

  4. Hope your leg feels better soon. I'm just glad they don't have the letters and numbers as much. Those killed me.

  6. I hope your leg feels better soon! I know it would be such a pain to have to deal with when all you want to do is sew! I don't mind the pictures too much. I hated having to type in the words, I never could figure out some of those letters!

  7. Ouch! My niece visited this week. I thought we were just having breakfast but we ended walking all over town. I was in sandals. Today's the first day my feet feel normal. But all this was my own stupidity. Darn.
    I like the way this quilt is progressing. Good point to think about the seam allowances. It does change the look of some pieces.

  8. Oh dear - sorry your leg is bad! We do need them for sewing, :)
    The quilt is looking very good Kaja!
    I don't mind the pictures as much as the number/letters either. Sometimes they do get tricky though.
