The babies are out playing!

It's hard to remember that it's still only spring when we've had such HOT summery weather.  We were pleasantly reminded this evening, while Hubby and I sat on the back deck and watched the new baby squirrels, newly emerged on the scene, chase each other around the yard.

Some loud cheeping drew out attention to this little babe:

And while I was out on the deck, I finished stitching the last of these seven GFG blocks(?) together.  I've got 18 made now - - I wonder how many hundreds I'll need to make a quilt?  The hexagons are 2" tall, but I haven't thought about numbers it will take to complete an actual quilt - I'm just enjoying the process.

The bathroom reno/demo from hell continues.  A little snag today: seems the vanity we chose is too big to allow comfortable use of the facilities without buttering up one's hips, and raising the arms as if on a thrilling roller coaster ride.  Forget completing the 'paper work'.  There seems to be a solution, and everyone seemed to be standing around wondering what I thought of the solution, but without ever telling me what the solution was.  I just mumbled "okay" non-commitally, and am hoping for the best.  I got the paint this morning, as commanded by the powers that be, so I think that means I'm going to be painting sometime in the near future, and that feels like a good omen.

My computer has been acting up.  This does NOT seem like a good omen.  Oy.


  1. Birds are so fun to watch and you did a great job with your hexagon flowers. A very productive week!

  2. I am looking forward to seeing the new bathroom. Will you be posting pictures??? Nice flowers! I have not seen any baby birds or squirrels in my garden yet this year, but I did see a baby bunny the other day.

  3. No problem.

    Just remember to lather, rinse and repeat.
