Desgn Wall Monday - September 21, 2020

Good Morning Quilters!  

Quilting activity:  I am working on a doll quilt that I am trying to put names in the center of signature blocks.  It is not going well so far.  I am experimenting with waste cloth cross stitch, desolvable cross stitch foundation, and just regular embroidery of a name.  I am debating tearing out what I’ve done so far and starting over.  The usual disappointment when something doesn’t look like I imagined it would.  But I will work on another project and come back to this.


Current events:
News/weather/health/politics/information overload keeps on getting more than I can take.  You too, probably.  I said last week that I was trying to ignore it all in this space,  and I shall try again this week.....
Right after I say this:  RIP RBG.  She had so much grit and determination and stamina.  I differed with her views, as I am pro-life, but I admired her good qualities.  Her death took all the fun out of me on “Talk Like A Pirate” Saturday.  I didn’t feel like it at all.  Argggh!  I am praying for the next person that fills her shoes, and the coming process of choosing that person.

Nature Stories:
A little mouse has decided to live in our mailbox.  He gets in by coming through a little drainage slot on the hinged door.  We have cleaned out the leaves (nest) twice!! before we figured out what was happening.  Now we are leaving him alone.  The box is long, and we will get letters from the front part, and he will live in the back part, all nice and dry in his metal house.  You can see him on the left side of the picture of the open mailbox.

Some squirrels have gathered lots of pine cones into two big piles at the base of two pine trees on our property.  Penny and I took these pictures on our walk Sunday.

I guess instead of burying them like acorns, they are just making big piles of cones.  My internet search says these mounds are made by red squirrels and are called middens, and all this work could be done by one single squirrel.

What are you working on?

I thank you all for participating in Design Wall Monday.  Lots of beautiful projects each week.  You amaze me.  Thanks, and please talk about Design Wall Monday and provide a link to this post from somewhere within your post.
