I have wanted to keep up with this journal, have to try harder. Lots going on and I have taken photos but cannot down-load until the new hard drive is installed. At least this old laptop still limps along so I can read my blog list. The photos below were taken before problems started.
No sewing or quilting going on at all, have not felt much like being creative until my sewing room is fixed (cleaned) up. DH has been helping me purge closets and clean the entire house.
It takes time, this home was built for us nine years ago (this June) you know how things accumulate . DH still works full time so a little here and there on weekends is slowly getting things done.
Spring brings outside work, cutting a fenced two acres and getting control of weeds = many hours not to mention a fence line that needs clearing around seven acres. Dang tumble weeds are popping up all over along with those nasty sticker weeds we call "goat heads". Too much to be pulled by hand.
Anyways......... I'm looking forward to working with these Riley Blake charms and FQ's. Missouri Star has a tutorial that inspired me to purchase these fabrics last year. Here is a link to Jenny and her * Falling Charms * tutorial. It's simple sewing that lends to chain piecing, not too much concentration needed. The quilt is so beautiful, hope mine looks similar.
Ruby and Gypsy are pranking Missy. Missy was taking her turn sleeping in the big crate and Ruby pushed the door shut. Monster is watching from his little bed/crate. All of the big poodles enjoy a crate but there is just not enough room to keep four crates set up in our dining room. They learned to take turns sleeping in the one.
Monster went for a groom last week. I brought a tube of pet-safe color, supposed to be blue but somehow I picked up the wrong tube. Uh-oh, oh my!
Last month our Smudgie kitty became very sick, she was given antibiotics and sub-q fluids. After the meds were finished she went for a dental and had a bad tooth pulled. Now the little dear kitty is well, amazing she is 14 years and still going strong.
Lots of other happenings but will journal about those later on.
