You Drive I'll Sew!
Today we spent time traveling to an auction, birthday party, and did a little bit of shopping to pick up some supplies for work. As Danny drove I sewed up the Grandma Moses embroidery block into a mini quilt....I haven't made a miniature quilt in a long time so it was nice to have something quick, simple, and prim!
Once a month the group AAPG that I belong to has a online retreat encouraging those who can to work on projects. It is such fun seeing what everyone is working on...such great stitches, needle punches, quilts, hooked rugs, and oh so much more.
I began this lil' hooked mat and finished it up all but the binding today...it measures about 10 inches square so it went really fast.
This lil' cat pinkeep was my last accomplishment tonight...It was a pattern I found in the Mercantile Gathering Magazine by Sweet Liberty Homestead. It took maybe 20 minutes from start to finish. Think I'll have to make a few more of these as it was so quick and easy.
What will tommorrow bring...a round up of sorts at Mom and Dad's. Cows and calves will be herded into the pens for separating the bigger calves from the cows and the orchestra of sorts will begin. The bull will start his snorting, cows will be bellowing, calves will be bawling and the dogs will be howling and of course the guys will be barking orders. Added to the melody will be the sloshing of muddy boots slipping and sliding....call it all sweet harmony!
