    1 spool = 200 meters

    eight laps of the pool.

    or...almost one quarter of my grandmother's quilt top quilted.

    the needle goes in and out, rocks gently on my finger, pulls through.

    i think about her constantly, and how very badly i want to finish this before her time comes.

    hand quilting is so slow, but for her i would do no less. it is also so incredibly beautiful, like her.

    another episode of true blood lined up on the computer, a new spool of thread, another late night.

    quilting is truly a labour of love.

    Ah, yes, one naked Viking vampire and quilting.
    Works for me.

    I hope you get to finish the quilt in time.
