Another quilt in a box, ready to stitch. Everything I need is in that box. All the pieces, cut and ready to stitch, and the thread colours that work with those fabrics.
There are a number of the blocks made already and the pieces for the next block are picked out, ready to stitch. Another one that is going to get worked into the rotation when the red and white and Pickled Ladies quilt tops are done.
Yesterday a surprise package arrived here. Among other wonderful treats, there was this package of binding clips. I had read about them somewhere and was intrigued but didn’t think I’d see them here for a while yet. So I’m thrilled and can’t wait until it’s cool enough and I have a quilt ready to bind so I can try them out. It is going to have to cool down a lot before I even contemplate quilting anything. Yesterday was very hot and today promises more of the same with a humidex reading somewhere around 42C.
Google is a wonderful thing! I had lost touch with a friend about 12 years ago. Over the years, I’ve made some attempts to find her with no luck. On the weekend, I tried Googling her name once again and found her daughter. Shot an e-mail off to her daughter and within 24 hours I had heard from my friend. Last night we were on the phone for close to two hours. It seemed like yesterday that we last spoke, just picked up right where we left off and made tentative plans to get together in the fall.
A Baxtertoon of a grateful kitty.
Why is he grateful? Because in the package with the binding clips was a very special kitty toy. He has other toy mice but never has been as attracted to them as he is to this one.
