I can work on more of my blocks for the quilt I am trying to make. Do you all really "PLAN" your quilts? I don't. I have a very loose mental image of what I want it to look like and try to do a tiny bit of math in my mind, but other than that I don't really plan. I like to stack up fabric and see how they interact together and I guess that is the most planning I do. I like to lay out the blocks on the floor as I go to see if I am heading in the right direction, I do that alot. Also now that I have not one but two fluffy gatos I do alot of floor dusting.
Ellie has the right idea this morning. The cats are really warming up to us. Ellie never had a moments discomfort settling in. She was a Curtis from the beginning, but Ike (Eisenhower) is coming around very nicely. I think he has selected my middle son to be his special friend. Which is good. Ethan will shower him with love.
This is the porch off the kitchen. I went to the best garden shop yesterday. The big window box planter things were on super sale and they are very easy plants to tend. I also got some kitchen herbs....all that was left and healthy was the chives, thyme and orange mint. I use them all in my cooking, so hot dog. I will re-pot them later today. After I get my sewing out of my system.
I may have to go back to the fabric shop (Quilters' Quarters) and acquire a bit more yardage for my project....we will see.
Here are the kids yesterday morning as they were getting ready to go catch the bus. They had a wonderful day and were bursting with stories about their day when they got home. Both (Sam is staying with me for another year) Emma and Ethan have made friends and are in love with their teachers. I am thrilled. The school they attend is probably the most beautiful school I have ever seen. There is a stream running through the ground floor with ikoi fish and a garden for the children to tend. I looks like a shopping mall. But what is the most wonderful? The teachers USE the FM system! Emma can hear them! What a blessing.
Next step is to get in to see a dermatologist so I can have the cancer cut off my face. But first I have to get in to see my GP, which I have had no luck with for the past 6 days. Grrrrrr. Yay, socialized medicine. I really do not know if it is cancer, but I have had these sores on my face for the past 6 months and I was on the derm wait list in Australia for months....but we moved before I could be seen so now I get to wait here. Yay me.
Keep your fingers crossed for me!
