I attempted to start stitching the binding last night.....
But Mom... this is so comfy! Silly Peanut. I think Aidan came in at that point and picked him up so I was able to quickly grab the quilt and spread out a part to work on before he made a bed again. I got one side done while watching the end of Sister Act and the beginning of Sister Act 2. This quilt is my August OMG - so I have a little over a week to get the binding stitched down and the quilt notes written on the triangle I actually remembered to tuck in a corner when I machine stitched the binding.
I remembered to bring my camera outside with me yesterday one of the times I checked on the chickens with Emily. I grab a handful of their feed and let them eat out of my hand.... which is fine until 'Fred' decides the soft part of my hand is food! And keeps pecking the same spot! Silly Fred. That is the one Greg named on a whim and when he tried to change it Emily decided she liked Fred! That is the middle one with the most white. The one reaching under her to eat is Lilly (Aidan's chicken who does not like that Emily named his Lilly instead of Aidan's chicken or Chickolata!). The one on the right is Emily's Emma. Mine is named Molly and she is the darkest red one we have and the biggest. Aidan's is the smallest.
I think this one is Emily's Emma..... although they all like to get onto our shoulder. For me... if I have Molly and she goes to my shoulder, Fred will try and fly and land on my head. It does feel like I am in Hitchcocks film 'The Birds' occasionally.
And just when we thought August 2020 was the 'going back to school fun' Mother Nature decided to pull this. Is anyone else looking forward to 2021? I might actually stay up until midnight for once on new years..... just to make sure the calendar year changes! Let's hope some wind shear knocks them down and they don't join up in the gulf. Kids are instructed to do their online virtual orientation today and the video on how Microsoft Teams works. That is the one platform they will use this year. We will see on Sunday what their schedules look like.
