Blah blah blah....

Heart kicked me yesterday when we went out for Morning stables. Stupid brat.....I'm ok; she caught me on my left hip, so it's a bit tender to sit on. Fortunately, I was close to her, so I didn't get a hard kick; it was more of a shove. :sigh: I need to invest in chair cushions for the dining table and the sewing table, though......

The blouse is in time-out. I keep having flashes of understanding, but when I sit down to DO it, they fade away and leave me confused again. It's frustrating! Ah, well - I have 3 of the 5 goat blocks done for my new wall-hanging. :make lemonade: #4 is started - the blocks are easy, but time-consuming; I have to applique the goats onto the block, then go back (once the top is finished) and embroider on the details. The pattern calls for machine applique, which *I* think looks tacky, so I am hand-appliqueing them in place. I like how they're turing out....just need to settle on the side border colors and design (the blocks have a dark green background, but I don't want the hanging to be "green".) The sashing between blocks will be a nice orange, as will the outer border....I just need some inner border panels.

The hanging I'm replacing is sheep; very country-fied. (It was a kit.....and my 2nd quilt ever. I like it, even though I am NOT country in my decorating.) It has sunflowers in the corners, with the stems trailing down to the next corner....I don't think I want to do that again, but I'm not sure WHAT I want instead. :pondering: I'm thinking a pieced inner border.......we'll see. I'll go thru the stash once these 2 blocks are done and see what I can come up with.

School is going well - both kids are finally at the same place History-wise. I have to read the sections aloud (only have 1 book), but at least I KNOW that Herself is actually *reading* (or, hearing) the assignment. Maybe it'll boost her scores.. her History test scores suck. :sigh:

Gotta go teach violin!
