This has been another rather hectic week. I finally managed to get my internet and home telephone situation corrected. However, things still were rather crazy. I am the treasurer for my local quilt guild. We found in a rather rush that our web site had to be moved to another service. I spent literally hours on the phone or email with Anita that manages our web services, and Cathy our membership person that had to coordinate our membership directory. At the same time our member's dues are coming in fast and furious with deposits that need to be made.
I did manage to finish up this simple 44 by 44 inch baby quilt top for our charity division. I had a goal of 12 quilt tops with prepared bindings for the 2020 year. Sadly I was short four. I have over the last two weeks managed to get 2 more done. So before I decided to set a 2021 goal I figured I had better finish 2020's goal pronto. I also purchased some rooster fabric to make placemats and a runner for my daughter. Yes, the one with all the chickens, ducks, and peacocks. It should have been for her birthday in January. I guess I am aiming for Mother's Day now. I need to get a move on with this project. At least these ladies are living the life of carefree luxury. My daughter let these hens out to roam around in the nice sunny weather along with their rooster Orby. He was sitting off to the side watching over them as they enjoy themselves. They found one of her empty raised gardens, which is the perfect place to have a spa day. Rolling around in the nice warm soil is just the perfect afternoon treat when you are a chicken. Better enjoy it ladies, as once she starts spring planting in the garden boxes they are off limits.
Laughing at the spa day for the chickens. You always share fun tidbits from the farm...or house. Ugh, trying to keep up with Internet issues is absolutely no fun. Congrats on helping to get it all worked out. Sewing was probably at the back of your mind but the top you shared is really nice. I'm sitting here thinking, do I have stash that would allow me to do something similar. (Not talking about millions of UFOS and the new start I'm working on today...) Hope you have more quilting and less hassle this week.ReplyDelete

Beautiful quilt...love the chicken table runner. I collect chickens to put in my kitchen. I'll have to make a wall hanging of chickens..that's another project to add to my growing list of quilts I want to make...love all the animal pictures you share. Have a great day!
Love your quilts and love seeing the birds. Every lady needs a spa day.ReplyDelete
