I also seriously needed to vacuum. We were only away for one night but Picasso seems to have slept on every chair leaving a dark haze of cat fur over them. He usually loses his winter coat quite quickly but this year it has been quite drawn out, probably due to the temperature fluctuating from hot to cold and back again. He also only likes being groomed in short bursts and then he's gone.
John also wanted to plant up some pots to put outside our french windows. We had bought the plants before we went away but hadn't had a chance to plant them. They looked good when he had finished.
A mixture of Geraniums, petunias, begonias, fuchsias and lobelia.
So this morning when I got up I was adamant I was getting some sewing done today. First however we took Scamp for a walk over the common. Then at last it was time to sew. I didn't get much done, four blocks in all, but it all helps move the project forward
The blocks are for my Mariner's Compass quilt that I started in January. I need twenty star blocks in all and I now have 14. Just another 6 to make and then I can trim them and stitch them together.
Tomorrow I'll try and get another couple done but I might not as I'm planning on spending a little time with Karen, one of my friends. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have all 20 made.
This evening I continued to work on Ernestine. Not much left to do on her now. I need to do her hair and face and her little dog. I only have until Wednesday before I put her away to start on the June bag lady or maybe I'll just finish her up and then move on to the next one.
