I promised to share pictures of some of the things I worked on at Retreat. I didn't take anything that required much concentration, because I don't sew well or think well in a busy workroom. Here is my Friday project. I had a stack of over-cut blocks leftover from my daughter's graduation quilt. They are FINALLY sewn together. Go Bears!
I had 18 to sew, and was thrilled to complete the task by about 8pm Friday night. Here is the complete set. I was even more thrilled to count and find I now have 40 blocks to play with.
My Saturday day-waster is still in a bag. I haven't been motivated to unpack it. I need to take a "before" picture, so you can see where I should have added another 1" border. I'll add the border, take the picture, and then post the pictures side by side. You may be waiting for a while.
Next up is my Saturday evening project. It went really well until midnight. I should have stopped at 11:30pm. I cut the hole too big. groan. I spent two hours on Sunday morning, trying to repair the damage. I just made it worse. It took three hours yesterday to achieve this. I think it's done for now. (The fish was made about 8 years ago. It's been looking for a home.)
I worked on something else for the remainder of yesterday afternoon. Again, it was one I began at Hartland. I'll share it later this week.
While I was working, I noticed Edgar out on the lawn. His ears were perked, so I knew something was up. You can't quite see it...
See it now?
Big tough gopher kept jumping AT the cat...
Doesn't Edgar look gorgeous? He's got quite a mane this winter. From the picture you'd never realize that he's a dinky little kitty, barely weighing 8 pounds...
I think the game is almost over.
"Lord, for what we are about to receive, we give You thanks..."
I do hope that this is/was the invader that decided to tunnel through my "secret garden" next to the front door. I couldn't believe it when I saw a hole as close to the house as he could possibly get. Edgar, you are my hero!!!! xxx ooo
