..I had something sew worthy to blog about, but it’s not to be. There are some pretty awesome quilt-alongs happening, but I have to resist and get my house repairs done! Rats.
We made a quick road trip to celebrate my mother-in-law’s 80th birthday. Four days of driving (from Middle Tennessee to the Black Hills of South Dakota) and one day to visit, but it was worth it. Here’s the birthday girl with some of her flowers. She’s a peach:) We saw sisters and brothers and nieces and great nieces and great nephews…I’m so glad we went!
If you’ve never made the drive across South Dakota on I-90, you’ve never seen the “Man Walking Dinosaur” sculpture. A little prairie humor.
I did a lot of the driving on the way since Mr. DJ was working, but I made a few of these on the way back. Round crochet got tedious, so I gave square and triangle a shot.
Now to weave in the ends and felt them in some hot, soapy water and see how they turn out.
Thanks for all the well wishes for my stubborn brother:) We were able to see him (and my other brother and their wives) on the way back from SD. He seems to be doing quite well and he didn’t need the sister sermon…he’s heard it from all sides already.
The next Project Quilting challenge theme is Tool Time. Paint rollers and brushes have been my most used tools of late, so I’ll have to toss that around and see where it lands.
And just to include something quilty, here’s some little bows I was playing with a couple weeks ago.
Okay, back to sanding! I’m itching to do something creative today, so I’d better get some jobs checked off the list!
