I spent a good part of the day piecing the elements I've been making for the mystery QAL.
They are pretty and very different than what I would've done all on my own
which is why this kind of participation is good for me! lol
Lena didn't leave my side today (she doesn't like it when I am gong all day like the other day!)
Most of the time I was sewing, she was laying on my units
so I had to move her or dig under her to get the segment I needed!
When I needed to stretch, I stood up and finished the vintage paint brush quilt on the frame.
In no time, I was finished and as I unrolled the quilt to take it off--I discover these nests underneath!
I had to walk away but later did begin the job of picking them out and then I will have to try and
sew these areas again. I did find the old machine did not like the slick thread I chose. Sigh.
And then Bill called to me to see if I could get a pic of these visitors-
gopher tortoise in the foreground, eating some of the pig plums on the ground
and the sandhill crane family in the background;
they had been eating from the corn crib until I disturbed them!
