The big question.... which project will have some stitches added to it?
I have these diamonds that need to be turned on the 1857 block. I use back basting and stitched every other diamond. Once these are turned I'll back baste the others and turn them this week.
I have these pretty blue squares that need to get marked with their sewing lines 1/4 of a inch from the edges.. so they can be added as the next round to the trip quilt. I have 80 of them to mark.
Head on over to Kathy's Quilts and see what other hand stitching is happening on this holiday weekend.
My builders (Greg and Emily) are prepping plans for a deck to be built around a part of the new 24 round pool. Nice and big.... the 15 round was getting small with me and the two kids in it. Despite the bigger pool, the kids are right next to each other in this one and bugging each other!
Showing a picture of the guinea pigs in their play area this morning. They love the tunnels.... and I love that it is recycling a Fedex box and some round cardboard tubes. Guess it is time to clean their cage while they are playing.
We also had a caterpillar that we watched turn into a pink lady butterfly. This was a girl scout project. One of the leaders was doing it and had extra's so I grabbed them for my girls. One emerged yesterday and we set her free. The other one.... had a burst of meconium yesterday afternoon but has not emerged. I fear that one won't survive.
