It’s really coming together now! The walls are going up and soon the floor will go down and finally, I can move my piano into its new home. It’s going to be such a light room to practice in and Margaret and I are beginning to prepare for our “concert” in June. Won’t I be glad when that’s over?My current boarder is a very large yellow lab named Bentley Brooks – his parents clean for us in the shop. He’s a farm dog who doesn’t normally sleep on carpet but he’s adjusting nicely. His parents have gone to Tucson for a week to visit their daughter and her family.
In this picture Telly is on the left – look at the difference in size! This chimney cupboard is going to move to the piano room to hold my music – I emptied it last week and those old fabrics are such fun to look at. I have moved them to the storeroom above the garage where I need to start sorting stuff for the sewing room rummage sale next summer. This succulent is called a night blooming cereus and has 4 new blooms developing. They will end up huge and will last only one day or night. I’ll show you again when the blooms open. I received the “start” for this plant from Alma Allen at Blackbird Designs many years ago and now it’s going to bloom – finally!And here is my escape artist, Telly, as she spends her evenings. She’s still getting outside the fence and I always know because Izzy comes in from outside without her and comes to “tell” me.Here is my Number 6 – 118 antique star blocks that I put together. They smelled musty and old and the piecing was far from perfect but I was determined to sew them all together anyway. Ina will flatten out those puckers when she quilts it – ha! I have included a YouTube link to a video I found absolutely amazing and wonderful.
And….I recently learned a secret to a long marriage:
An old woman was sipping on a glass of wine while sitting on the patio with her husband and she says, “I love you so much, I don’t know how I could ever live without you!” Her husband asks, “Is that you or the wine talking?” She replies, “It’s me…..talking to the wine!”
We are watching the weather tonight and tomorrow and if the storm reaches us as predicted, it is unlikely we will be open on Saturday for our $5.00 Quilt Saturday. Before driving to the shop, check our blog to see if the shop is able to open. If it does NOT open on Saturday, we will give you the next few days, Tuesday through Saturday, to bring in your completed block and pick up the next one.
CHECK THE BLOG ON SATURDAY MORNING!!!
