I've been off the computer lately trying to give my eyes a break...not sure how much it helps since I end up reading or sewing...
I finished my picnic quilt top. I drafted the block off of one in my vintage stash and then just made it scrappy. Used up a lot of 2-inch squares but that doesn't seem to make a dent the box of them. Oh well, all good.
Now making several quilt backings has made a dent in the stash! Brownie has claimed this scrappy bargello as her own. This backing is a very soft batik..wild but soft!Macbeth and Brownie were very quiet this morning...very unlike them. Usually they want to sit next to me or even sit on the keyboard. Instead the two of them were tracking this poor turtle across the back yard. Mac just thought it was fun while Brownie...the turtle need to be afraid - very afraid. I put her in the house to give the turtle a head start. Boy is she angry at me!
Last weekend I did go to the new Star Trek movie. It is a lot of fun. Even my DH who isn't a Trekkie enjoyed it (though he did refuse to wear his communicator/beam up badge from his cereal box!)
