We are off for Presidents day in the US. Well, hubby was online doing some school work but the rest of us were off for the day.
Emily made me put the fencing up around the garden. The chickens are not happy with us right now. They were enjoying eating bugs and digging holes to have dust baths in there. I did leave them a little square so they can still dig.... dust bath and she can dump their droppings there to compost. We managed to plant last night and then the torrential rain happened overnight. Some big claps of thunder and lots of rain. Yes, unlike most of the US- we were in the 70's and in shorts yesterday.
I took Emily to Kohls to try and get her FFA uniform needs. Black jeans and a white button up shirt. We have the coat and the neck scarf and she has black boots from riding she can wear. Now, she is transitioning out of girls into the Womens/junior section. The inability to try things on in the store is a struggle. We tried a small mens shirt - that got returned. We tried some jeggings.... that got returned. I picked up the next 2 sizes up on the return trip and one of those worked thank goodness. Just one more return on the other size. We tried a shirt from Amazon... hopefully that will fit. Not sure why you can't try on in store but can bring home then return?
The boy has been overdue for a hair cut for quite a few weeks. That was accomplished yesterday and I got mine cut as well. Lots of hair on the floor from both of us.
I did get a little time to finish cutting the yellow butterfly wings and got them sewn together by machine. I need to hand stitch the inner circle then baste them for hand applique. Not sure it that part will be a this year or next year project? We will see how the month goes I guess. I am undecided on the background - scrappy whites, same whites?
Just a little hand stitching last night. I believe this is block #11 of 18 being worked on. I think I might pull out the little bit of straight lines I did in the sashing and do something else. It is a small sashing but maybe something with curves? Still time to think on that one.
