While the wind was really bad here for 2 days--
I did not blow away--
so that meant--
I needed to get back to stitching--
I did finish the cat--
but then I 'ruined' it--
I said all cats have to have noses and whiskers--
so I drew them in permanent marker until I could stitch them on with embroidery floss--
I do not like it at allll---
the face area is not large enough to do it correctly--
so it looks like this cat will have to get redone!!!!
And then this afternoon I did get the top finished for the last Downton Abbey fabric--
the last 4 blocks that I stitched to add to this quilt--I ended up sewing it on the wrong edge--
and also realized that I had not squared up those 4 blocks--so out came the friendly seam ripper--
and a redo--
now there is not much fabric left--enough for a binding is all--not even enough for the backing--
haven't decided if I am keeping this one or sending it up north to my girl friend for one of her hospice quilts?????
and my favorite 'mouse' has died--
at least it doesn't want to work anymore with the computer--
good thing I have a second one--
always good to have a second mouse!!!
but she was with a neighbor--and they were trying to decide if DD needed to go to the hospital--
she had cut her thumb chopping something in the kitchen and it wouldn't stop bleeding--
they decided she needed to go--poor kid!!
Enjoy the moments-di
