Must be my week to be short on supplies. First, I goofed on cutting strips, so I had to use some of my green border material. Here's the result....
Not too bad. I haven't decided if I'm going to make more blocks or stop with what I have now. In honor of the Delighted! fabric, I think I'm going to call this quilt "Delightfully Dizzy".
I accepted a challenge from a Facebook group called "Crafty Mavens" to finish one project a month. I figured it would be a good incentive to get some of these UFOs done. I started with this crochet blanket that was halfway done. I can't believe I miscalculated how much yarn I needed and I ran out!
The nearest Joann's Fabric Store is an hour away. It does not make sense to drive to Tucson for one skein of yarn, so I went to Joann's website with hope of finding the same yarn. Not only did I find the same yarn, it was on sale! Yes, I know the dye lot will not be the same. Hopefully, it will not be too glaring of a difference. It seemed silly to buy one skein for under $4 and pay $6 shipping....so I bought 7 skeins instead for the same shipping cost. Now I have enough yarn for a second blanket. The reason for finishing this project was to get it out of my closet so I can have a little more space. Okay, did that make sense?
Well, back to my projects. I'll leave you with some photos of a
Ladder Back Woodpecker Red-naped Sapsucker getting a drink of water from the creek. I spent two days trying to get pictures of this guy while he was pecking away on his favorite tree across the creek. On the third day, I guess he felt sorry for me because he landed in the creek right in front of me! (Oops! I goofed! Thanks Barbara for letting me know!)
|That lady has been watching me for two days..|
|Okay, lady. Are you watching me?|
|Yea? How about this view?|
|Heh!Heh! I'm a baaaaad boy..|
