After some very warm temps last weekend we are back to the single digits with a strong NW wind – typical Iowa. Most of our snow melted but I have a feeling it will be replaced.
All 6 chicks are doing well and Reed loved them!
I’d love them, too, if they lived at somebody else’s house.
He is doing so well on his log cabin quilt for the fair next summer. He has learned chaining as well as leaders and enders and just look at these perfect seams and nice pressing.
I rarely have to help him at this point – he’s making 48 blocks for a quilt that will fit the top of his double bed.
While Reed was making log cabin blocks, I got one Rectangle Wrangle block done – I was too involved in the Puppy Bowl to sew much. Didn’t you just love all those puppies? Whoever created this phenomenon deserves to make a lot of money in advertising – and it’s sponsored by Chewy and what pet owner doesn’t love Chewy? Just a win-win all the way around for any dog or cat lover!
And in my house sewing room I’m sewing rows of Bullseye blocks – 11 rows of 11 blocks each equals 122 blocks – wow! I’m going to love having it on top of my king size bed knowing that it won’t have an overhang which makes it too big for my washing machine.
And some blooms to show you – paper white narcissus bulbs in the piano room.
And in the basement green house are last year’s amaryllis bulbs and one is going to re-bloom! I have never been successful at keeping them over the summer but I kept both Reed’s and my bulbs and it’s possible, I guess, to get them to bloom again. One only grew leaves and one has a flower stalk about 30″ tall with 2 flowers. Better than nothing!
I’ve decided I’m no good at regular houseplants and my success with succulents is lack of watering. Yikes! I forget to water the philodendrons, the ferns, the Moses in a basket, the schefflera and it shows!
The succulents however are very happy!
Time to get to work – love checking in with all of you – tell me what you’re working on!
