I have to get the quilt on the rails before it gets too warm. I don't want to hold it and baste it when it is too hot to handle a winter blanket. I could manage a smaller thing but something the size of a bed cover? Too much. Get it on quickly is going to have to be my motto. And yet after all these many many years, there isn't anything about this quilt that is quick. No point in rushing now. I am nothing if not efficient at putting a thing off but in my small house, there are no corners to hide stuff in. If I am constantly stepping on it, it gets done faster, whether I plan it or not.
In the heat of the afternoon, I am going to plan for some scarf knitting, or sock knitting, or maybe some cotton basket crocheting. Elisabeth Zimmermann in the Knitter's Almanac, says summer is the time for small things.
