Design Wall: Nothing. Everything is off the DW and all the things I am currently working on is Christmas so no DW updates today.
However, I have been busy. On a break from sewing on Friday I found our cat, Ms. Murphy, up a tree. I was a little concerned seeing her up on those little limbs but she didn’t seem worried at all.
However, this picture was taken right after she fell (broken branch) and caught herself by her claws and then swung back up where she rested before continuing down. I would have taken a picture of her hanging but I was too busy holding my breath.
Then she proceeded to walk on down, just as though nothing had happened. You gotta love cats.
Saturday I visited a LQS where they are having an apron contest. I didn’t photo all of the aprons, only the ones I voted for. these are children’s aprons but my mother loves chickens and I immediately thought of her when I saw this one: the two of them are one entry. While I was there I also bought fabric. This store gives you 1/2 your age as a percent off of whatever you purchase. This year, since I am turning 69, I am getting a pretty good discount, don’t you think? I forgot to take a picture of my new fabric so will be showing it later.
Sunday I planned on sewing again but somehow got a cleaning bug. I have been wanting to move a few things around in the studio so I began what will be a month long process. Anyway, This is one shot of the seating area of the studio. The ratty footstool is from our ‘65 VW camper. It went through four kids and several camping trips before the camper was traded: the footstool stayed. I keep thinking I am going to recover it but it has not made it to the top of the “to do” list.
And the view from the other side. I had this room set up to also function as a guest room with this hide-a-bed. However, we do not have company often (3 times in 5.5 years) so I decided I don’t need to keep a space in front of the couch. The problem is that the couch was covered with fabric, pillows, quilts, etc. so everything had to be gone through, folded and a place had to be found for it. But my seating space is now ready for me to take breaks in comfort.
Now, today is my 69th birthday. I have always had a policy of not working on my birthday so today is no exception: my Monday WW meeting has been postponed for this week. But, for the first time, DH cancelled his classes and is spending the day with me. We will be going to NWFL, to Red Lobster to eat crab legs by the water. Then we will spend some time at the beach, do a little shopping and wind up back at home where our puppies and cats will be waiting to show a little love all around.
Now, since there was no creativeness in this post, you better go to Patchwork Times to find some.
