Thursday was yet another day of rain. Today is supposed to be more of the same. While I am determined to keep making the red and white Feathered Star/Sunflower blocks, I had a migraine Thursday and wanted something simple to stitch. These Dresden Plates are the perfect project for times like that. I’ll make a few more full plates and then start adding half and 3/4 plates as well. The design is all figured out in my mind and I don’t think it’s going to take long to put together.
I got all the blades cut out and ready to stitch. I love the cheerfulness of these little plates. I think it will make the perfect summer quilt – perhaps for a picnic out on the roof garden.
For the first time in months, Smudge decided he wanted his yogourt treat. Mr. Q.O. and I stood in the kitchen for ages watching him lap it up. Earlier Thursday afternoon, I walked into the kitchen and saw this – Smudge stretched out on the floor, and resting his head on the water bowl.
