Sadie is no lap-warming slouch either.
She put in her time after Smitty went off to find adventure in the basement. You just never know when a stray mouse might be lurking.
That reminds me to update you on the most recent mousecapades. I went searching for any remains the morning after the night of hunting, but didn't see any sign of it. It made me wonder if they'd caught it or if it was still on the loose. Yesterday morning I found what was left of it. I'll spare you the description of what I found, but it's safe to say the mouse has gone to that big hunk of cheese in the sky. It doesn't stop the kitties from searching though.
So I was working from the largest quilt to the smallest. The next one up was the hand embroidered "I Believe in Snowmen" quilt. This one fought me every step of the way. I'm probably still going to have to work a little harder to get pleats out of the back, but I was tired of messing with it, and so I moved along.
The next three quilts were part of my "trashy" series. These were all made with bonus triangles, cut off bits and bobs, and orphan blocks. The first one is "Trashy Triangles."
And then, "Waste Not Whatnots." When this one comes up for quilting, I'm going to fill in some of the larger black sashings with some fancy quilting in a bright color.
Just two left, and the next one was the "Tiny Tuesday" quilt. These were the Tiny Tuesday blocks made as a part of the Rainbow Scrap Sampler in 2019.
And finally, another Dream Big panel. This one is the Dream Big Leaf. I had so much fun quilting the Dream Big Dahlia, I wanted to do another one.
They were all stacked up for their picture, but I needed to move the pile to another spot in my sewing room. Let me just tell you, that is one heavy stack of quilts.
Okay, so I budgeted three days for this task, and only used two days. That means I have a free day today. I'm going to get to work on the Get Well Kitty pattern. It shouldn't take long to finish off. It seems like a good day to do laundry too.
We're halfway expecting out-of-town guests tomorrow, and I've been fitting in housework all during the week. (I wouldn't want our guests to see how we really live, now would I?) She messaged me the other day saying they'd had car problems, and we know how that can throw a monkey wrench into the best laid plans. So I'm not sure if they're still planning to come, but I expect we'll see them at some point. Also, we haven't seen hide nor hair of the roofers. If they don't come by today or tomorrow, then we'll start making more noise about getting our project finished. It's so, so close, and yet so far.
So, it's pretty much a NBS day for me. What are you up to today?
