I realized this morning that it's already the 5th of November.
Time sure does fly now that I've got a job again!
A few more books gone since last month, but my progress has slowed again.
On the quilty front, #3 has been chosen as this month's UFO. So I'll be doing a bit more hand applique before this becomes a top.
It's further along than this photo (many of the birds are sewn down), but there's still a bunch to go. I still love this, so maybe I'll really finish it?
The baby quilt I showed in my last post has been bound. Seems I made the binding green, but that works too. I still have to label it and once it's been given (soon!), I'll show off the final product.
Quilting the baby quilt has given me the courage and motivation to get the two Christmas quilts done, so I hope to show sneak peaks of those soon. I had to order thread to match, otherwise I might be quilting instead of blogging right now!
And the job is looking up - more up. Earlier this week, a coworker resigned. Though I feel bad for the scramble it has caused, it has opened up the possibility of me being full-time much sooner than I anticipated.
Have you seen the announcement that Bonnie Hunter is starting her newest mystery quilt? I'm going to participate because every other one I've seen has been goergous, but now I'm trying to decide if I have enough to make it from my stash, if I should raid my mom's stash (she surely has enough!) or make it less scrappy and buy fabrics...hmmm... My mom is going to make it too! I'm excited to start a new project!
And this post is a bit short on photos...hmmm...
Luka LOVES crunchy cat food. If you give him a handful on the floor, he gobbles it up like it's the best treats ever. This chair is just outside the kitchen and where big bags of food get set down before being put away - when they come in with the other groceries. He claims the food for his own, though this is actually barn kitty food and he gets the most expensive cat food in the world, thanks to bladder troubles. He likes that food, too.
