It was another slow day here at the Traveling Three Cats Ranch. The morning started with me working my way through the last inchy motif. When I had the flowers and a few of the words stitched, I gave my thumb a break. The flowers are long and short stitches.
Later in the day, I finished off the words and the outer border.
When we get home, I'll add a border, quilting, and binding, and turn this into a little wall-hanging. And, what the heck? Since this is the first of March, I'll make that my goal for:
Also on my March list of goals...get vaccines! We finally became eligible this morning. I've been all over the various websites relevant to our part of Oregon. There are appointments available, but they're only scheduling out a few days. We're both signed up on a list for someone to call and notify us as well, and then I would expect we'd have more flexibility in scheduling. I was hoping to find something for the 15th or later. So, my guess is that supply is still iffy, and so appointments aren't scheduled out that far. I'll keep trying on some of the lists, but we'll probably have to wait for someone to call us. Our local paper tells us to "be patient." Okay...but it's hard.
Today will be a busier day. We're driving to San Diego, where I'm meeting a blogging friend at Rosie's Calico Cupboard. I visited Rosie's way back in 2011, and so it'll be like visiting for the first time again. You can read that old blog post right here. At the very least, I'll be on the hunt for a regional fabric. We're also going to visit Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery where my parents are interred. We visited the cemetery on the same day back in 2011. Since then, my father has joined my mother, and so we'll go pay our respects. I'd like to get some flowers to take along. We'll also visit Cabrillo National Monument and the Old Point Loma Lighthouse. We visited all these places on the same day, and you can read more about them right here. So, we're going to pack a lot into a single day. We'll need to eat our wheaties this morning.
Now that the inchies are finished, I'll get back to focusing exclusively on the redwork Quilt Shop piece. I'm hoping there are only a few days left before it will be finished too.
