Saturday was the day to finally piece some batting for hand piecing the Book Club quilt. I cut the strip in half to meet the size I needed and then had a skinny long strip that I added to each size to make sure I had enough for at least one inch on each side. It works!
I had a little of the backing left from the last 2 quilts to back this little one (35x35) as well. All set with a hoop on. Ready for some hand quilting.
Joining up on Sunday with the other Slow Stitchers.
We were gifted with egg #2 from the chickens on Saturday. We had egg# 1 in scrambled eggs Saturday morning. I also completely forgot to pick up my girl scout nut and candy first thing Saturday.... so I arrived a couple hours late. They were still there and had my troops stuff. Thank goodness. Greg took Emily to horses for me. The boy and I were watching the chickens when I got home...and had left the coop door open... a black snake slithered in! We noticed when we were going to put them back in the coop. Since neither of us like snakes.... it was an interesting 25 minutes before it managed to slither it's way out. As he left, G and Em arrived home. There might have been some texts and photo's sent of the snake and my dislike of them! Emily got shuffled off to a friends house for a sleepover. I know. We are rising slightly in our area above the 5%. She has not seen Seri since March. Both families have been being 'safe' and sometimes you just have to take a calculated chance. Seri's reaction when she saw Em - You got taller! . It has been a long 8 months! These 2 girls met in pre-k at age 4. With her gone, we had homemade shrimp scampi with linguini for dinner. She dislikes shrimp so it was a good night to have it. Aidan got to help me make it. I have had a lot of boy time today. As he is putting away my halloween candles, it is time for me to pick up a needle and get some stitching in.
