Today DH and I began week #14 of our morning 2 mile walk. I am so very proud of us, each of us has only missed 2 days and both times the other went alone. Now this may not seem like much to most of you but we are OLD, 68 and 70. Also, when we started the morning temps were in the low 60s. Today it was 79 and the humidity was 84%, and this was at 6:30 am.
And did I tell you that Abby goes with us at least 6 days a week? And this is usually how it is with her the full 16’ of leash ahead of us. But she loves it and pouts when, on the rare occasion, she has to be left at home.
When we started I couldn’t find the Sketchers I had bought the last time we were walking. So I wore an old pair of shoes until we had walked consistently for four weeks. And then I got these, and I love them. They live in the car (the socks change daily) and until I saw this picture I didn’t realize that they have walking stains on them. Whoopee, I can see how I abuse them by using them.
Well, here it is, looking a looking a lot like it did last week. I have bordered the diamonds with a continuation of the background fabric and am playing with some ideas for the center blocks which will also need additional background fabric. Anyway, I am almost ready to put this thing together. It has been a design as you go project but in the end I think it is going to be very pretty.
Now for a really great thing….. I won these fantastic fabric squares from Ravelly to use in her new When Nature Calls BOM! The first block is out and I am so excited to begin, yet another, BOM. My mother has an outhouse theme in her bathroom (and, no, she is not getting this quilt) so I have decided that my tribute to her will be this quilt in my master bath. Anyway, block 1 is on my agenda for this week.
One of the reasons for little being accomplished this week is that we were out and about all week. I don’t think we really did much but I did buy some fabric (no picture yet) and this..
Now, isn’t this cute? But wait……..
It’s a flash drive, a 4G flash drive. And it works. It’s not like I needed another flash drive but it was so cute I couldn’t resist. They had several different animals so I am hoping I don’t find myself at Staples again any time soon.
And now it is time to flash on over to Patchwork Times to see what other quilters are doing with their time and money.
