We had a lovely day at the lake...except for our sleep at night. The dogs were ready to wake up at 5 am (!) - they don't sleep as well here. Hubby got up with them and I was able to sleep a bit later. Then he took a nice nap this afternoon. Okay, I had a nap, too - but not as long as his. Luckily, they both slept better last night!
We were able to fit a nice long boat ride in during the morning before the rain hit in the afternoon.
During the rainy afternoon I cut out pieces for Block 3 of RFLQ. I still have to add some tiny little stems - but I don't have everything I need for them here, so these will wait until I get home. One thing I've noticed about this block: the scale seems off. I made everything as called for in the pattern. BUT, I'm supposed to have more flowers and leaves, and even butterflies, bees, a caterpillar, a snail, and a couple of birds in this space. There is simply not enough room! And I really don't like that the birds are supposed to be the same size as the bees and butterflies. I need to do some research and see what other quilters have done for this block and if they've had the same challenges. For now mine will just have flowers... maybe the insects will come out to play around the exterior of the bigger circle.
Last night I began stitching on another Farmer's Daughter block - not much to show yet, but it's coming along.
It's pouring rain this morning. That's okay - glad we got a boat ride in yesterday. We don't mind being here when it's raining - we'll watch TV and entertain ourselves!
Have a nice one!
