Thursday I spent some time prepping all the pieces I need for the remaining Feathered Star blocks for my red and white Sunflower/Feathered Star quilt. This photo shows the pieces I need for one block. By the time I finished stitching Thursday night, I had half of the HSTs, diamonds and squares put together that border the kites in the block. That takes the longest stitching time of any of the elements of the block. Once that is put together, adding it to the kites and then surrounding the centre Sunflower goes very quickly and then all that’s left is to add the outer setting squares and triangles. By the time the weekend is over, I hope to have at least one more block completed and a third one started.
Finally, after days of rainy and/or windy and chilly days, Thursday was sunny and Hugo had an adventure on the roof garden. Here he is walking down the pathway to the garden.
Then he thought the shrubs surrounding the walkway needed investigating.
Inspecting the few lonely flowers that are blooming seemed like a good idea.
The daffodils looked rather interesting, so Hugo decided to get a bit closer.
The tour of the roof garden continued, but suddenly we couldn’t see Hugo. We looked up to see he had decided to climb a tree.
Why on earth would a hippopotamus climb a tree? To see the CN Tower, it seems. It’s hard to see in this photo, but Hugo could see it.
We have a couple of other little adventures planned for Hugo and then it will be time for him to travel on to his next destination.
I pretty much avoided the computer Thursday as my back was still a bit sore. It’s better as I write this late Thursday night so hopefully I can finally get caught up on replies to comments and blog visiting today.
