Got a shock this morning - I saw a very large hawk swooping down behind our shed, and a few minutes later, a tiny fawn went running to the trees in my neighbor's backyard. I had no idea hawks would go after fawns!
Isn't he/she the cutest?
He kept looking around, I think for mama, and finally went trotting off into the woods.
We're having more scheduling changes, now that hubby and my oldest and I get up at 5am, my youngest just got promoted and works from 9pm to 8am. (insert shocked face) We go to bed, just as he's starting work! You can imagine what that's doing to his state of mind at the moment, lol. It's four days a week, and that's bad too, as it's Thursday - Sunday. No garage sales for this young man this summer.
What else - ah - my youngest went to the auto store the other day to get windshield wiper fluid, and came home with two wrapped parcels for me from the florist - he bought me two African Violets!
The only plant I can't kill.
Seriously - I do not have a green thumb - I'm a plant assassin. A foliage exterminator. But for some reason, these plants love me. They're cheering up my sewing room so much!
I do have a new pattern in the shop, I'm incredibly proud of the binding...stripes!!! On the bias!!! And it matched up!!!!
I have no idea how that happened, I couldn't repeat it to save my life, I'm just glad it worked. This is a fairly quick pattern, all one color [my fave] and mostly backstitch. You can get it here:
I think that's all for now, I'll leave you with a picture of my very strange kitty on her favorite table - heaven forbid I put a sewing machine on it.....
