Spent some of Friday painting and polishing brass.
Still lots happening at the house - exciting stuff, like a new drain that goes all the way to the front of the block.
By the time I get home tonight this old tree should be gone.
|Perfect Autumn day today|
Will be a relief to know it's not going to topple over in a storm. There are still plenty of trees on the block.
Some sewing over the weekend. Finished putting "Pathways and Crossroads" together. Doesn't take very long when the blocks are so big.
A couple of RicRac's "Work in Progress" bags for presents - this was the pattern that I couldn't find late last month. I had issues sewing on the binding around the small handle hole - ended up attaching it by hand.
And I brought out one of the bags of blocks I made starting in 2011 - Civil War Sampler (I called it "Not Quite Civil War" because of the colour scheme).
Won't take too long to sew these blocks together. I have one more bag of blocks - Sylvia's Bridal Sampler - to sew together, then I think I can start something new. I'm definitely looking forward to having the house back to normal. Will be a few weeks yet before the repairs are carried out.
