Not much to say

Its been a little boring the past couple of days around here. I have been trying to get some projects ready to take with me on a retreat I'll be attending next week.
My goal is to have 3 or 4 prep projects to sew on the machine and then I'll take the blocks I have ready for "Words to Live By", plus some knitting too.
I've been going through my scraps for strips and then cutting up squares and rects. 

And the strips for this project.

Figure I would sew up strips to take with me so all I'll need to do is trim them up and make the units.
Will see how that works out. They'll be 3 of us in one car and we try to keep it down to the minimum, so my plan is to have everything cut and ready to sew together. I'll be taking no extra fabric.

Bob is feeling like himself these days and I'm so happy to see it. Except he is into everything. Helping with the scraps.

He thinks I need to help with appliqueing too.

But he will rest and this time he wanted to rest with Pete. 

Surprised Pete was comfortable with Bob on him like that. Very cute thou.

Yesterday I did put up some more tomatoes, 

4 quarts and 3 pints. This time I froze them, way too hot to use the canner.


  1. You look to be really organized for your retreat. Love the fabrics you are using, a wonderful combination of colours.

    1. Thanks. Will see if did good. I'm getting pretty excited.

  2. I am very happy to see that Bob is doing well! It looks as though you are very organised and efficient in your preparations! xx

    1. Oh thanks Amy, I guess I should use a wide angle lens so you can see all the chaos in my stepping

  3. Looks like you are well on your way to being ready for your retreat.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
