It's that time of year again here in southeastern Michigan, time for the Woodward Dream Cruise. Just the thought of it makes my heart beat faster. I'm a car nut, don't know much about them but I dearly love the old ones. And lately I'm seeing them everywhere....
This guy was the only one I was quick enough to get while driving. I was stopped at the light, so all was ok. Since it was taken through my windshield [which still hasn't been washed], I'm posting it for my friend Patricia's Through The Window photo challenge.
Saturday is the official Cruise day. But the cars have been gathering from far and wide, and we're going to cruise down Woodward tomorrow to start looking. We'll probably go Friday and Saturday too. My plan is to get some movies as well. We'll see!
This is my aunt's cat Felix. He is evil. Well, not really - but he does not like men. He bites them, growls and hisses and generally makes them feel very unwelcome.
He's cuddly with his mama, unless he's biting her. Shortly after I took this pic, he nipped her foot. He loves to hear her say OW!
And now the update. Today, I started putting Kaaren's blocks together into rows.
There's double that on the design wall now, I took the pic this afternoon. Blocks are everywhere.
Probably the most time-consuming part has been testing the writing, to make sure it doesn't bleed [a few have], and trimming. I still have a lot to go on trimming and sashing. But it felt good to start getting them in rows!
Normally, when I'm stitching blocks together and they're not super large, I don't pin them. I just lay them together and stitch. But this time, I want it as perfect as I can get it, so I'm pinning each one. I'm a wee bit amazed at how well it's working, and I'll be changing my sorry ways when it comes to my own quilts!
One more Through The Window photo for you. I wish I could remember the quote about the world starting at your own front door.....
