Early this week we had rain:
We even had hail. And I learned something: hail makes a lot of noise when it hits a tin roof.
This is what I woke up to on Wednesday. What is it, you ask? This is the container for cat food. And you probably can see that it is completely empty. I have to tell you that I was not a popular person when I walked right by the hungry cats. I tried to tell them I was on my way to the grocery store but it didn’t seem to console them, at all.
When I got home I was faced with this. This is my Weight Watcher’s paperwork and I usually
make a mess of 1/2 of the dining room table while I complete it. But after a little while it was all done and ready to get in the mail.
Then, finally I could spend a little time in the studio. Here I am showing the completed Block 4 for August of the Carol Doak BOM. I am really enjoying her foundation paper piecing a lot and may have to make more of her blocks on my own. Of course, I also really like the fabric I chose for this BOM.
Today I finally began the piecing on the second set of swap blocks. I thought I had all the pieces cut but soon figured out that I hadn’t cut at least half of the parts. Here I am chain piecing flying geese parts. I did figure out that I really do not like chain piecing, just sewing the same thing over and over again. However, I will continue sewing these since they need to be done SOON. With luck, maybe, I can have all the blocks done by Monday.
Saturday, after my WW meeting, DH and I are going to Pensacola to do some serious shopping. I need a new pair of shoes (oh, yes I do), the birds need seed, and DH wants some new pool toys. We have been making a list because when one lives in a small rural area, one needs to use her city time wisely.
But, before that, I hope to spend a great deal of tomorrow sewing, swimming, sewing, reading, and sewing.
Have a great weekend everybody.
