I feel like this week was a bit shorter than most
after having the family gathering last Saturday, we spent most of Sunday afternoon with our daughter and son-in-law and Mr. Cute (I cooked dinner at their house -- testing out a new shrimp dish that was a big hit!)
and on Monday morning, bright and early, I had two teeth pulled -- ICK! -- so Monday was a big waste
projects this week began with utilitarian sewing
Mr Cute has moved out of the smaller bedroom in the house into one that has more space for his things
the new room has two windows, so grandma was pressed into service to create new curtains (made out of some lovely light gray corduroy donated to the cause by my sister -- YEAH!) and some car themed valances
and yes, this is an actual bed quilt in process here in the art studio
more accurately, it's being worked on in the evenings while I'm watching TV since I'm hand piecing all these little "Y" seams
I need to do about 10 more rows of hexies to make it long enough --- (hear the chanting: I think I can, I think I can)
this piece, however, is totally a test
and I think I'm going to like the results
because I've done so much work on the big piece, I wanted to test out the next step without danger of ruining it
the point here is that the figures should be "ghost like"
so which one is more ghost like? the colored ones or the ones that are just line drawings?
still thinking about it
work on the bead project continues too
ready to do the backing then on to creating the necklace that (hopefully!) will look like pumpkin vines
there has been some work going on in the garage workshop too
these metal garden tools originally were bought for my daughter and were painted green
Mr Cute's favorite color is orange
guess where these tools are going next!
and then there is this picture
we made a trip to the hardware store this week and as we were leaving a very nice guy was going in with Thor on his shoulder
we stopped to admire and talk, and Thor's "dad" obligingly took a picture of Thor sitting on my shoulder --- pretty bird!
on one of my walks to the mail box this week I picked up these along the way
I have no idea where in the neighborhood the maple tree is -- but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to spot it soon!
yes, fall is coming
