I have been asked for updates on the critter story. The raccoon has not been sighted since there was a very loud noise aimed in his direction last week around this time. (actually I think it was a momma and babies). I didn't do it, but it seems to have worked. The red squirrel is going to meet a similar sound very soon.
There are bunnies everywhere, but I haven't found any babies so far. I hope we don't find them with the mower!!!
I hope no one gets the impression I don't like sharing my habitat with the wildlife!! I love watching the bunnies frolic, having the occasional frog in my rain barrel (which is sunk into the ground), and especially things like the Yellow Warbler's nest we discovered last weekend!
The destructive ones just have to be shown their boundaries. :-)
|OOPS- forgot to rotate.|
Meanwhile, during the week of rain we had, I found time to sew!!! I had an actual sewing day, where I wandered from one project to the next with merry abandon.
This is the project I worked on at the Guild UFO day- my first One Block Wonder. I never got around to putting the top together once I got the block laid out. This is a long skinny quilt that will either dress up my new office or warm my side only of the bed when it is needed. The borders are a nice purple that I would not have chosen but for some friends who made me see how perfect it was!
|Just some random bits made from scraps and strips. Not sure what they'll be yet.|
I learned to make "Kanzashi" flowers last week. The first one matched this bag I made last year, so I moved into the bag to show it off.

I just remembered a looming deadline, so I will have to put this aside and do that in my next sewing session.
I am grateful for:
How much Jake loved his quilt!
Lunch with some friends and a nice break in my road trip.
Magnum ice cream bars (double chocolate!)
My deep blue funk has passed for the moment.
