But some good times were had on the floor next to my sewing table.
I finished all the sewing, ironing and trimming of nine-patches. Yay! Then I could begin making the blocks.
After sewing a few nine-patches and squares together the OCD side of my brain made me stop and sort all the neutral squares into sets of four. There. Much better. Now I wouldn't worry about ending up with no variety in some of my blocks. I make myself nuts. :-)
I took a short trip out Saturday afternoon and look what chased me home! That is one ugly cloud. This is about a mile and a half from the house and by the time I got around the corner it was POURING!
So what to do? Of course! Take yet another nap, with Piglet alternately guarding and sleeping above my head on the back of the couch. :-)
Today however, was absolutely gorgeous. Not even too hot. So we took a drive to a different lake.
The Tramp even smiled! lol
And there he is in the water. It's a pretty enough beach, but I doubt we will go again. For one thing the swimming area is smaller than our favorite beach. Worse though, is the buoys don't keep the boats and jet skis far enough away from the beach. The roar of engines and stink of gas fumes were very off-putting. The first time we went in the water a fish kept bumping into me. I think it was trying to taste the design on my bathing suit. When I went to brush it away it BIT me!! Actually just a nip on my thumb, but The Tramp says I let out quite a shriek which got the attention of everyone on the beach. Oh my!
Anyway, the evening has been peaceful (and bug free) and all my units are stitched together. Only one nine-patch and two squares left over. Not bad!
