The eclipse was a complete washout for us; we were so disappointed not to even get a glimpse of things because the thunder/lightening storms were so fierce!
But when the evening mail came-I had a package of joy! My swap package came from Debbie of Araignees Tangled Web! Not only were the towel and pot holders beautiful, they were in the colors that make my heart sing! The cards and notes and the soap are always a hit! How nice to have such generosity in a swap!
Yesterday I woke up with pink eye-I thought it was appropriate they put me in the pink room!!! I sat and knitted for almost two hours. Good thing for knitting!
Home gave me a bit of time to do this-a different kind of quilting for me but it is working out! I wanted to quilt bee hives in the plain blocks so I drew one and cut around it to make template and then use the air erasable pen to trace it on my blocks-it is working well. I put bees and fleur de lis in the corners. (Napoleons idea of bee representational art work!)
