Here is the Bad.............. That flower in the center just left me cold. After I got that much done on the first of my Country Cousins block, I put it aside because I really did not like the center. Vickie reminded me on Friday that she had finished 3 and I had finished none. My obligations were completed so I picked that block up and began again.
Now, isn't that better? I tried Patti's method of appliqué this weekend and I really prefer it.
I also finished number 10 of my Faye Anderson Blocks. That means 20% of them are done.
The rest of the weekend was spent taking down the velvet drapes in the sitting room. Now that they are down and the sun is streaming in the cobwebs show up so much better.
I also began clearing out one of my bags. I cannot report that I have emptied even one. I am forcing myself to properly complete whatever I take out of the bag. The one I began with had the cleaning kit for my 221 in it that my wonderful Robert sent to me. I must get that accomplished.
All of the laundry is done. Lem was good to hang my sheets on the line for me to dry. I really like sleeping on sheets that have dried out of doors..............
Last week I found a pants suit in a size 0. My mother is always looking for something that size so I got it for her. It arrived in the mail to her on Friday and was declared almost a perfect fit. My sister still had to move the button for her. They had two more and since that size is hard to find I went back on Saturday for them. While there I found a jacket, top and two pairs of pants for myself.....
I will not be sewing in the mornings this week as I usually do. I want to get the tote bags emptied and I know that will take time.
