While Gracie played all day---
Course then I had to work some more and clean up after her!!!!!
Here's all my work though-----
I had found this cute stitchery that a blog friend sent to me and I needed to finish it--decided on a cute little pillow to keep the larger bunny pillow company!!!!
I decided to finish my Sentimental Journey block for November--
but looked what happened--the trim melted with the iron--OPPPPSSS!!!!
Can't leave it that way--so we redo it--
Now see how cute--and a finish!!!!
I decided to also make the kittens into a pillow--I have so many wall hangings--
I for got to take a picture of the backs of this one and the Thanksgiving one--
Maybe to tomorrow--I will look to see which magazine I got the kitties from!!!
I sewed the binding on the Mariner's Compass quilt--this is from a hand piecing class about 2 years ago--and I then hand quilted it as I have been showing you--and if you notice the corners are not at a "square"--am tired of squares---did use my new little angler ruler and and "chopped" off the corners!!!!!!!!!!
then I worked on this block---
That pine branch was driving me nuts as I said--
First I realized that I really used the wrong color for the pine needles--think I should of used a more olivy green--but was thinking Christmas colors and this green to me is a Christmas green---soooo--
I did this--
I still am not sure--
I think it is some "better"---
but what do the rest of you think--and be honest--
do I just need to start over on the pine branches--or what---
I think I do "squirrels" better than pinecones!!!
Oh here is a cute Squirrel story for you--
Here at the Jefferson--our maintenance guy John is trapping some of the squirrels and taking them up the hill to the woods and letting them out--he has now trapped "14" of them--Well yesterday he set the trap--he used soda crackers with a "goob" of peanut butter on them and puts two of them in the live trap!!! During their break yesterday, the housekeeper, Melinda, looked out the window and started "laughing"--she pointed to the window--on a red bench right next to the trap sat a squirrel--just like he was sitting in a chair--with the cracker between his two front paws and he is "licking" off the peanut butter!!!!! Somehow he/she had gotten into the trap and got one of the crackers and not set the door off to shut---Hey--it must of been a "girl" squirrel to be that smart!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok be good--don't forget to get the pie making ingredients!!!
hugs, Di and kitty kisses from Gracie!!!
