red, white and blues....
Today was another unpacking day...this is getting a bit monotonous no? I did make some headway in the sewing room and hang curtains in the bedroom. That all just about wore me out...I hid in the kitchen for a bit making a huge batch of Beef Barley Soup. It has been a rainy day so it felt right.
Above is my husband's Red, White and Blue quilt I am determined to finish this year. This quilt has gone to one class, two workshops and multiple retreats. It has crossed the Atlantic (twice) and been lost once by Delta Airlines for almost two weeks (I guess I should have tipped the guy a bit more so it would stay lost....) I think I have procrastinated putting the three borders on because the next step would be to quilt it...it will be a pain to quilt. But, I am going to do this one way or another.....
The only excitement today was the neighborhood Tom cat has gotten a bit bolder...more like a peeping Tom.
That is Goldie...sleeping on her favorite chair surrounded by bits of Christmas waiting to be boxed up and a box of fabric bits that I save for when I pack boxes. The Tom cat spent most of the afternoon perched on that window waiting for her to wake up and pay attention to him!
A couple of times in the past week I have almost let him in the back door thinking he was my Brownie...not sure how well he and MacBeth would get along!
