I feel like I haven’t had any time to sew lately, so I was happy to hear it was Friday night sew in tonight. And DH is gone away overnight, so I didn’t have any distractions. I started sewing about four this afternoon; while watering my garden I did some hand stitching. I am trying to follow Helen's Stitched Sunday embroidery lessons. I was thinking while participating in the pin cushion round robin lately that I need to brush up on/ learn more embroidery stitches. So this came at an opportune time. I’m only on lesson 1 though and she’ll be posting lesson 4 this Sunday. Oh well I am a Slow Poke quilter, and sewer. I’m not posting a picture of lesson 1yet as it isn’t quite finished.
I had to put the embroidery down and go to work on some blocks for my colours quilt. I would so love to get it finished, and I am nearing the end. I made three dark yellow blocks tonight.
Thirteen blocks left to make, unless I decide to make it one more row long.
I got some great mail today, but I’m not going to show it now because it’s time for me to sleep. Here are a few animal and scenery pics instead.
A bear, just leaving my yard….
A Richardson’s Ground Squirrel, more commonly referred to as a gopher… There are thousands of these cute little animals around here. They are cute as long as they stay out of my garden
This grass is called Horsetail grass. It is silky smooth in one direction but hard and prickly the other way. Dogs often try to eat it and end up in dire trouble… It is beautiful though….
A clown performing at the music festival I went to a couple of weekends ago….
