Just checking in with you for this past week. Been a busy one, but not as busy as next week will be......
Here is what I've been up to............................
Relaxing on the deck taking more pictures of the wildlife and birds.
We've been having lots of rain here and so the one day after the storm, I went out and took a few pictures of the day lilies and some pine branches with raindrops on them.
Went to quilting on Wednesday and I finished putting together that cute Christmas quilt I showed you before and it has gone to the long-arm quilting lady, Joannie, to do her magic then I'll bind it and take more pictures of it. This won't happen for two weeks as we are taking a trip next Wed with the senior center. I'll have pictures and tell you about our travels next post.
I have been elected to the Senior Center Council, still not sure what that means, but I have a meeting to attend on Monday next week at 10:30. So, I'll share what that is all about too!!
So I've been working on quilting some table runners to put under our lamps for the Christmas in the Woods show. I'm doing some rustic ones as well as some Christmas ones. I'm doing the Explosion Block again, one of my favorites with these panels of ducks, moose, deer. Have a few more blocks to get together sitting there on the sewing machine and I'm just trying different fabric to see what I like best. These will probably make three runners when completed.
and I did cut up some old blue jean legs and make squares out of them. They would look great in a man's quilt with flannel shirt material, or t-shirts. Hate to throw out the jeans, so now they will be put to good use.
Also, am busy working on lamps, stoning them. I did two sides this morning and will be heading back to the workshop basement to work on some more this afternoon.
We visited with Bill, Tess, Mickey and although it was extremely hot, we walked about three miles that day, the dogs tongues prove how hot we were, but it was fun................. and I'd do it again in a heartbeat!!! Miss yinz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
