I've been keeping busy. I downloaded the Overdrive app for my phone, so I can borrow library books and read them on my kindle app. Wow do I love that! Unfortunately, the book I'm "reading" at the moment was only available as an audio book....so it's taking forever to get through. I can read a book in a day, but they sure don't talk as fast as I read.
So while I've been listening [Amelia Peabody series if you're interested], I've been stitching. After finishing the Sweet Country series, I needed some quick applique. I've uploaded 5 new applique blocks to my craftsy shop, they're just blocks, so you can use them anywhere - kitchen towels, pillows, baby blankets, children's clothing. I'm calling them Dollar Deals, because each one is only one dollar! The first one is the Sunflower block -
I haven't stitched it yet, because I want to do a bunch of them in batiks. All different colors of batiks, then make them into a little wallhanging with a scrappy border.
The next ones are a group of cacti - I call them Cactus Garden.
Just simple stuff, but it pleases me. I'm thinking of putting these on a set of towels for my aunt.
While I've been busy indoors, hubby has been busy outside. He's cleared the forest in back of underbrush, we could set picnic tables back there now - and he's been working on the fire pit. He's done an amazing job. The other day he was out there working on it and the deer came by to munch some apples - they didn't seem bothered by him at all! Especially this fellow -
Sorry for the quality of the pics, it was getting dark. Amazing how tame these deer are!
I've got a busy weekend coming up, tomorrow is my son's 23rd birthday! My baby. Hard to believe. We're celebrating Saturday as he forgot to get off work tomorrow. I can only hope he doesn't forget to get time off for our upcoming trip to Florida!!
Gotta run, must find my wool socks - see you soon!
