Here it is rendered in fabric, floss, thread, and crayon. There was a lot of hand-stitching in this one, and I spent five days of embroidery time on it.
Jackson's mother explained that the "wild rumpus" is a quote from Maurice Sendak's book "Where the Wild Things Are". Somehow both my kids and I missed Maurice Sendak. I think we were too focused on Richard Scarry at the time. Gold Bug, Pig Will, and Pig Won't got the lion's share of our reading time.
I'd prepared for finishing Jackson's block the day before by tracing out the next Hocuspocusville block. This is Block #4 of the 12 blocks, Morgana's Apothecary. Not sure where I'll use the orange floss this time around, but I'm thinking possibly the flowers and maybe some of the items in the apothecary jars sitting in the window.
It was hooped up and ready to go.
But I had other fish to fry yesterday morning. I got an early start on my errands and my grocery shopping because I had a 1:00 haircut appointment. When I arrived back home and put away the groceries, I still had an hour to spare before I needed to leave for my haircut. When I got home from my haircut, it was just 2:00 p.m., which left me with a whole afternoon unplanned. What to do? What to do?
You know how I whine and complain about sandwiching quilts, but it seemed like a good opportunity to get a head start on January. There were six little quilts and one large quilt to sandwich, and so I got to work....only, as usual, there was a furrsome problem impeding progress.
Next up was My Vintage Kitchen. I'm looking forward to finishing this one and replacing the little quilt currently hanging on the wall of my kitchen. I'm kind of tired of looking at it, and the kitchen needs a fresh face.
Sue and I are walking today, and it will be a big effing miracle if we don't get rained on. I'm donning my rain gear in preparation. I've been putting off housework for a couple of days, and so I'll need to do a little of that this afternoon. Still, I'm hopeful I'll get to start quilting Whose Woods are These?
What's on your agenda for today? Anything fun going on this weekend? I'll just be trying to stay dry.
