Quite literally, that is.
(Does watching Downton Abbey make anyone else speak with a British accent in their heads?)
I had all sorts of pictures I wanted to share today . . . but in packing up to head to Joc's -- where I'm spending three days and two nights in the sole company of Ellie and Leia (YAY!!!!) -- I left the cord (aka *link*) that connects my camera to my laptop.
I can give a quick stash report . . .
Used/donated this week: 0.00 yards
Used/donated year-to-date: 4.5 yards
Purchased/added this week: 0.25 yards
Purchased/added year-to-date: 20.50 yards
Net used/donated for 2013: -16.0 yards
Not terrible ... not great, though, either! Hopefully that will change this week at retreat (the used part, I mean)! Linking this up to Judy Laquidara's Stash Report #7.
I wanted to show *good* pics of my little block. The center is nearly completed and I've been given permission to move on to the next exercise, which will be fun.
I so wish I had a good picture of the center. The metallic threads give the appearance of jewel encrusted flowers -- it's so gorgeous! And I extended another of the flowers out of the center. I think I need to do that with one more, for balance. I'd like to get a whole yard of that print and do nothing by outline it with metallic threads. LOL!! Linking that up with Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching!
And I also wanted to show you my design wall. I don't even have phone pics of that. I'm taking all my Grandmother's Choice blocks and fabrics on retreat -- my number one priority will be getting those blocks all caught up! Yay!! Linking up to Design Wall Monday!
I had other sweet things to show you -- but I'll wait and talk about those when I can show *and* tell. In the meantime ... how about *this* sweet little thing . . .
I love that they have the night vision camera installed in her room! It saved me a lot of grief through the night.
Leia's more than a little intrigued. It was nice to sleep with a cat at the foot of the bed again. And to wake up to a cat nose, checking me out. And to have a cat follow me into the bathroom . . .
I told you that Todd had gotten the golf cart fixed ... well Sawyer's favorite thing is to come over and go for a ride through the camp. So Saturday, James brought him over and we hit the trails!
This is Sawyer answering the call of the wild with a wild call of his own! He was very animated -- we'd just come from the top field where we'd flushed out three deer. They went *leaping* into the woods, tails high! It was such fun to watch and he was so excited!
Ah . . . here's the other nice thing about that camera in Ellie's room . . .
I know precisely when it's time to go!
