Working on Autumn Dance

Or trying to........

Day 16

I worked on this quilt this morning.  Then William came over.  That was the end of my sewing.  His mother has parent/teacher interviews today.  So I am looking after him.

These are only a few of the strips that need to be sewn together.  I have several more to make.  I will do that tomorrow.  

Having William here is like having a cat around - a very active cat.  Within a few minutes he had totally destroyed my layout.

Maybe when he is not here tomorrow I can get some serious stuff done.

A Day of Rest

Day 13

Felix is still not well.  I am very worried about him.  My DS was here this morning.  He offered to take us to the vets.  But he is a math instructor at Centennial College and they are on strike right now.  I was afraid we wouldn't be back in time for him to go to a meeting.  Felix seemed a little better today.  I hope I can make him well with some good food.

Also, I had a migraine today.  So not much got done. either on my sewing or on anything else.  But while looking for some brown scraps I found the maple leaf quilt that I was working on a few years ago.   I am going to take it to my quilting group tomorrow and maybe get some advice on how to finish it.

I don't think I have much more to do.

Hope tomorrow will be better.

Sunday Slow Stitching, Or......

Day 12.

Was planning to do some stitching on my hexie quilt today.  I got some white pieces ready, but now I don't know what to do.  My Felix is not well,  He is having trouble walking.  My husband is not home and I can't drive.  So I am just sitting here watching him sleep.  Here he is in better times.

He looks so sad.  Poor Felix.
