Another week gone – and what do I have to show for it? Not too much but wanted to put everybody “on alert” for tomorrow’s blog post when I’ll be giving you the fabric list for Bullseye.
Arlo update – his wonderful vet in Marshalltown, Iowa finished the leg/plate surgery last night at 9:30. Now he needs to get stronger on that leg, walk on it to let the swelling go down but no running or roughhousing at home with Cyrus. Ginny is going to have her hands full when Arlo gets home – oh man, I do not envy her!
The booklist I posted last week was incomplete – so sorry – but I’ll add the ones I forgot to next month’s list and I’ve gotten several new ones in the past two days so if you’ve got one to send and want to do it when you think of it, go ahead. Don’t wait till I ask next month. My friends at Novel Idea discussed Educated last Wednesday – I read that it’s one of Bill Gates’ top 5 books for 2018.
I read this book “Finding Gobi” this week – a true story of a long distance runner who was accompanied by a stray dog while running a race in the Gobi desert and I loved it.
I do not read animal stories usually because they upset me so much I can’t get it out of my mind but today Gobi has an Instagram account so I knew the story was going to end well – check it out.
Yesterday I discovered this broken window in our mud room – now how in the world could this have happened? I’m sure it was fine the day before and the screen on the outside of the window is intact. It’s a double paned window so cold air is not coming in but it is a real mystery to us! Could a bird hitting the window actually break the glass through a screen?
I laid out a couple Christmas mats/runners – maybe if we start earlier next year we could make these in time for Christmas?
I read on Moda’s blog that they are going to work on string piecing – quite a coincidence because clue #4 which posted today is string pieced rectangles- I can hardly wait to start. On January 14 Carrie is going to start a Pincushion Quilt Along from her new book Pin Pals. Connie and I are both going to join in the fun. How about you?
And before I close I walked through the house – nobody stirring, not even a mouse!
