Succulent heart embroidery is now in pillow form!
The design is from Emblibary called For the Love of Succulents.
I rearranged all of the colors from the original to suit my fancy.
The partially worked scrap quilt from my Mom (but not made by her) is made into a top now.
If the storm doesn't knock out power, I will be loading it up on the frame today.
It does have a few wonky spots that will need easing in so I can quilt it without wrinkles
which will make a challenge but I am hoping for the best!
I put the neck rib on the sweater in the same k3, p1 rib as the cuffs and body hem.
I hope it is long enough.
Granddaughter # 3 is long as well as tall!
If it isn't, I will add rib in the lighter grey like the neck rib.
I might just do that anyway now that I write this-long is always better than short!
Hurricane Dorian Update
Outside, we are continuing to prepare the house and yard for Dorian--
everything that could be a missile is moved into the garage,
hanging pots and all of the porch plants are moved up close to the house.
All lawn furniture and lanai chairs are hauled away
and the plants there are moved up close to the house.
I will have to remember to remove the wind chimes from outside of my bedroom
which I didn't removed until 3 am during Irma and it wasn't pretty!
Every day I see something else that I hadn't noticed which needs removing or securing.
I am trying not to think about putting it all back next week yet, either!
Inside, the laundry is caught up and the pantry is stocked-
even the cats' food is aplenty!
There is easy access to burgers,
taco fixings and hotdogs.
The grill has a back-up propane tank in case we can use that in between bands of rain.
