Today I started putting frames on my Wonky Houses. I didn't get far. I also created a custom-made design wall, by finding a large piece of flannel and pinning it to my wall. I had taken down my other one, it was huge and clunky and kept falling on me. Pinning it works just fine, thank you. Nothing fancy about me.
Isn't that a horrible picture? Sigh. I also started placing my blocks for my strawberry jelly quilt. I hate doing that, so I didn't stick with it long. I ended up sitting on my ever-increasing behind and stitching Shabby Roses all day. I did take a break to ride my exercise bike, then I had a huge bowl of ice cream. Life is good.
My son Sam went out with the camera this afternoon. I really, really like these pics, I'm not sure why - maybe I just really like these little flowers. Don't ask me what they are. Or if you know, please tell me. I might have to make a quilt featuring these little flowers. I seem to recall having a machine embroidery design just like them, it's made so you fringe the flowers.
I kind of like how some of the flowers are out of focus. Reminds me of wearing my bifocals around the house. Usually I only wear them to sew, but sometimes I forget I have them on and run downstairs for a cup of tea. And then I have to put my head all the way down to see the stairs...that's a pain. Makes me feel like Mr. Magoo. And the glasses are so thick, I kinda look like him.
Have a great week!
