Feline Friday - 7/29/16

I am SUCH a good boy!
I've been helping Momma get ready for her camping trip!!

The cooler seems clean enough, with room for plenty of kibble.

I'm holding down the pop-up until she gets it packed. Rumor is these canopy tents can get pretty rowdy with all the excitement. Momma told me she bought a clear shower curtain with pretty butterflies to hang from the canopy just in case it rains. In case, Momma? Have you checked the weather forecast lately?! 60% doesn't sound too promising...

I've also helped arrange the rose stars for Momma's project. It was pretty tiring but she was thrilled with my arrangement! I think there is a lot of blue in this quilt but she didn't ask my opinion before she made them. I suggested a different color for the border and she seems to agree.

And last but not least, I made sure to get some lap time snuggles with Momma! A treat for both of us. GrandMomma comes to feed me so I'm not alone but it's just not the same without my favorite Momma. GrandMomma likes me but I think she's still just a little afraid of me - something about my naughty reputation when I first moved in to CasaGrande... I have NO idea what she is talking about tho cuz I am such a good helper!!

Design Wall Monday - 7/25/16

I spent quite a bit of time this weekend and last trying to arrange the rose stars for my owl project. I had thought a certain block should be dead center because it "stuck out." I eventually realized that it didn't really stick out all that much so I went back to my original center and it came together fairly quickly. It pays to not second guess oneself!

Yipp - I'm missing one block on the bottom left.
That's because I can't count and thought I had 23. Oopsies.

If you look at the center star, there are 6 stars around that one - half are attached and I hope to have another attached tonight. I've also got 3 across the top attached. The goal is to have as much of the "center" attached as possible before I go camping so that I can finish the center and then surround it all with the background pieces while camping.

On the other hand, Mother Nature is playing with the weather and it's supposed to rain every day. That doesn't mean all day but that is still a possibility. Given the sandy campground, heavy rainfall tends to bounce off the sand and it might not be a good idea to work on a large piece in the rain. I'm going to have to pack a variety of hexie projects for all weather options :) Darn!

While stressing over the owl blocks I also switched it up a little. I now have 7 blue pieced rosettes done. Only 70 more to go!

Hey Momma? You done reading the Penny Saver?
If you are ... I can shred it for you...

I stretched first!

All done!
