It was nearly 3:00 by the time I made my way to the quilting machine yesterday. Two more blocks were quilted, and there is still thread on the spool. There are just two blocks to go. Think I'll make it? My own thinking is that I'll pebble until there are about 2 square inches left to cover, and then my thread will run out. Who's with me on that? Just now I checked the tracking information on the new spool. It hasn't changed since it left Las Vegas (metallic sparkle thread, you know) on October 6th. How long can it take for something to travel from Las Vegas to Portland, Oregon? I guess we'll find out.
So this block was finished yesterday.
Fortunately, my little cat showed up about that time because I was at a loss for what to do next.
He thought this would be a good block to work on, and so I did.
It was getting close to dinner time by then, and so I stopped for the day. As I was leaving the room, I found these two waiting for me.
We had a nice day of weather yesterday. Smitty loves these warm, but not too hot, afternoons. It makes for excellent squirrel and bird watching from his catio perch.
So if my thread holds, I'll finish up the last two Snow Globes today. Fortunately, I'm not going anywhere again until sometime next week.
Our nice weather is supposed to hold for another day or two, and so Mike and I are going to get out and plant some bulbs. I decided I wanted some crocus blooming in spring. I love it when I see them blooming through snow. They are such a hopeful flower. I ordered a 50-bulb mix. This is the picture from Breck's online catalog:
