The MOON! And Feeding Deer...
Look what came in the mail! I got it just in time for the mystery quilt! Woohoo! I need to get out the instructions and review them this week - happy dance here!
Last night we took a golf cart ride around the neighborhood to view the Super Moon. My pictures certainly do not give it justice. WOW!
And then we stopped off at a spot in the woods to leave a pile of deer corn. We have so many deer around here - Friday Hubby saw 17 - and we love to leave them a spot of food. We'll go back and check it today and it will probably be all gone - they love it!
I finished the hand stitching on the Sue Spargo bag kit yesterday! And today (according to my schedule) is for machine quilting. I do believe I'll quilt this little bag first - and then I'll move on to work on Summer on the Beach.
I found the basket blocks I was looking for, but I still need to find a small clamshell piece. Or else I need to rethink the UFO I plan to put together. I also found my wedge rulers. AND I cut out another Farmer's Daughter's block. A good day!
Swimming is still happening. Yesterday I topped my personal best - 90 laps! It took me 54 minutes. My ultimate goal is to be able to swim for one hour straight and I'm almost there. One thing I've had trouble with is counting laps. I have been thinking, "15,15,15,15,16,16,16,16,17,17..." the entire time I swim. While I was in Houston Hubby bought me a little click counter. I now keep it on one end of the pool. With every lap down and back I click it twice. NO more counting in my head! You wouldn't believe what a difference this has made! I now can let my mind wander. I designed a quilt while swimming yesterday.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Go forth and quilt!
