This past week has been very frustrating. Computer technical issues with our internet and a new modem has caused hours of telephone calls with the provider and finally they have decided after multiple telephone calls with no success to come out and deal with the issue. Needless to say it has cut into my sewing time drastically. Sewing is my zen place, when things get tough or stressful I sew. Needless to say nothing much got done and I am not a very happy camper right now.I finally managed to get a 5 rows together on my 9 patch 4 patch quilt. One more row to go. I still have tons of blue and neutral squares cut out. I way over cut for sure. I guess I will have to stash them away and start another quilt with them at another time. Some time ago I saw a picture in Art Quilting Studio's Winter 2021 issue by Ela Zeman that caught my eye. I started it several weeks ago with the background. I did get the background quilted, and added some grasses one afternoon. I need a much darker green for additional vines, but have not had time to get out to a quilt store or order on line so it is on hold.
At least one major accomplishment happen at my daughter's house. The naughty peacocks' jail was finished this week. No more raiding the neighbors walnut orchard, laying around their pool or sitting on top of the cars of visitors. It is a huge structure and 17 feet high and roofed so no flying out. My daughter's two Ginny hens have joined them and all seem to be very happy. They have the large nesting box to keep them out of the wet weather and plenty of roosting poles to sit on. My daughter is happy that husband is no longer threatening to BBQ them and I suspect the neighbors are relieved too.
