What happened to winter? it is near 70 here again – I spent about an hour yesterday raking up leaves out of the flower beds – I still have 3 more beds to clear and I really have to think about getting some tall fencing wire to string around my raised beds this year – the deer went crazy last year and destroyed my green beans and sweet potatoes. I better get that done before it is time to plant the garden seeing as we will be home again this year and not traveling as Mike’s contract job will go into next year.
I did get time in for a little bit of sewing and will be finishing up a hexie for Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy. This one finished – one of 8 needed to finish up the main part of Handful of Scraps. Also linking to Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
And this one needs to be finished, I thought I had it all thread basted as it was all stacked to fool me and then realized the ones on the bottom of the pile were not basted.
One Retro Air Ship Propeller block cut out and waiting for the machine – I’m not sure if I am happy with the fussy cut circle in the middle and might trade it out for another and save this one for another one – even though the colors do not have to match up or go together – this is scrappy after all, I just do not think I like it with this one.
Anyone remember this pattern that I got in a kit last year – flannel – well I have it out and will hopefully start it next week or the week after – I think it is about time – it might be closer to two years since I got it actually.
My computer seems to be on its last legs and it is time to get a new lap top – the fan is constantly going (well almost) and it is running hot – I have been unplugging it and shutting it off after writing my blog post or when I need to use it and using the Ipad mostly. I’m not sure when I got this one – maybe 4 years ago? Doesn’t seem like a long enough time.
