Reed was here working on his next project so I worked on my Dirty Dozen #8. I made quite a bit of progress but I’m missing some pieces and now will have to plan and regroup.
Do you see the difference between my pile and Reed’s “pile”? Haha! He is very organized!
Hazel absolutely LOVES Reed!
His mom and siblings came to pick him up and Vera and June were enthralled with Hazel – lucky little dog! Myra looks on.
Here is Connie’s #8 – she is wondering where to start, too, and what happened to the navy fabric that she was using in this project. Ha! Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
I actually have this same pattern on my want – to – do list but haven’t started yet.
I told Reed yesterday that I have not found all the eggs for almost 2 weeks now and I have searched every corner in the barn. No little eggs. Maybe they”re actually molting and not just hiding the eggs? BUT yesterday when I was mowing I happened to spy this little path into the pampas grass. Guess what I found in further inspection – a golden camping sitting on a nest of more eggs than she can cover! Oh, good grief!
So – baby chicks will soon be present on the farm once again. Remember the 5 that hatched last January? Is it possible that they’re all hens? Honestly I search for rooster signs and sounds and still there are none. If they’re all hens God is surely answering prayers!
Don’t forget to send in your book titles. And speaking of books – tomorrow I’m going to give away 3 – yes, 3 books from the generous folks at Martingale!
Remember the 3 baby raccoons? Tom and Kathy are now taking them outside so they learn climbing trees and running – soon they will be released through a wildlife rehabilitation group.
My rug progress – I have missed 2 full days of progress so I’m determined to catch up before I get any further behind. If anyone living in North Iowa would like to purchase a rug frame and pick it up in Mason City, please contact me and I will put you in contact with a woodworker who can make you a frame. You can save all the shipping costs which are pretty high.
I have a long list today and it’s going to be hot – mowing is always on my list the same as weeding for those of you who have gardens. I do have bags of mulch to put down but everything needs weeding first. Yuck.
I have really enjoyed hearing what you are working on for #8 – it’s making yourself pick it up and finish it! I will be so happy to have a finished pile by next year. I’ll ask for photos at the end of the month – you will not be able to post them in the comments section. I don’t know about you but I have looked forward to July 1 and the start of the Dirty Dozen because I really do want to finish these projects. Some of you only have some binding to do which is where I get held up each time I want hand stitched binding.
Good Luck to all of you as you work on Number 8! And thank you for all the condolences on Buckwheat- I was not sad to see him go to join Alfalfa because he was lost without him. They even slept together, always touching and now they’re together again!
