Finally, I made it into the studio and this is what I accomplished. I anticipate I will get it appliqued this weekend and then will need to quilt the top that is on the frame so I can quilt this. Sorry, I can’t remember where I found it: I looked where I thought it was but no luck. Anyone else know?

Thanks to Judy D (http://grammasquiltingroom.blogspot.com/) for coming up with it.
I am now midway through the foot on my current sock. I am going to try to figure out how to get the colors to match before I start the second one. I should have this one done by the weekend so will be trying this new, to me, technique.
It may appear that I have a lot planned to get done this weekend. Well, I do, but DH is going to be gone for 3 days so I should be able to either get a lot done or be very, very rested.
The morning before we left on our vacation we were surprised to find a state trouper coming down our drive. He had just been talking to a woman who had hit this tree with her car. The tree is on the edge of our driveway,
as was our mailbox. She broke the stand and took it completely out of the earth. We hadn’t heard anything and never saw the woman: the trouper said he would send the paperwork to us (and us with no mailbox) but so far we have heard nothing.
We had our mail held at the post office and this week DH got busy building a new box. Maybe I should paint a bull's-eye on the new box to see what happens.
More Elsa pictures. Here we are doing our morning yoga. I am bending forward cuz I don’t think I could pick my leg up that high, even if I wanted to.
Then some weight trainning. It’s hard to take exercise seriously when the weight is giggling.
And then we rested. Can you tell we were having fun?
However, we also have a cute baby here at home. This is Sadie who was wondering why I left the deck and she didn’t get to go with me.
And now, back to sewing and knitting. Have a great week. Gari
