Well, considering I only had Sunday off this week, I’d say I got a respectable amount done.
I’m doing simple crosshatch quilting. It just seemed to match the best. And that was all done yesterday (Sunday) so I’m quite pleased. Another couple hours and the quilting should be done, then just to bind, wash, and gift!
This is the other UFO that’s been sitting in our main room for awhile.
Until yesterday, it was just an empty, dry tank sitting there while I slowly accumulated all the equipment needed to start up the aquarium. I have everything but the buckets and fish now, so I’ve started the cycling process. I’m using this tutorial on fishless cycling. I really don’t want to risk killing any fish, which I would undoubtedly do in my total newbie state of knowledge.
My other half and best friend both said that, well, duh, of course my fish tank needs a castle. So a castle it is. I’m working on getting some plants (because it also wouldn’t be my fish tank without real plants) but the store I was at last night didn’t have what I wanted and of course, it was Sunday so the other one was closed before I could get there. I shall update periodically on the status of the tank…I find the whole process extremely interesting and have been reading almost everything I can get my hands on. Can’t wait to actually have some inhabitants but I want to get the water in good condition first.
