This will be the last view of the baby Eastern Bluebirds. They all look healthy and ready to fly out into the world!
We are still waiting on the Wrens to hatch but hope to check in on them in the next day or so.
I had a nice, but quick, visit to the river Monday for one night to hang out with my friends (person and dog) and help my friend so some sewing room organizing. We didn't do all that much organizing but we did make some progress.
I came home Tuesday afternoon and got this little quilt loaded and started quilting it. It will look familiar to you because Mom made two of them. This is the second one. I hope to have it done by Saturday when I see her. That's very doable because I don't have to go anywhere today or tomorrow.
Today I plan to make a lot of soap and lotion and then do some quilting.
In the sewing room, I'm continuing on my placemat frenzy. I asked Mom if she would prefer a set of 4 or 4 different ones. She chose 4 different ones. That gave me the idea to use some of my sun prints since I only have one fat quarter of most of them. I will get these quilted and bound this week and then I'll need to work on napkins.
I do have a big bin of overdyed napkins but none of them matched Mom's placemats. As I was going through them I thought I might as well match up some fabrics with them. Three of these photos are napkins in sets of 2 and I found some really early hand dyes (like 2008) to go with them. In the bin I also found these fish prints. I doubt of the pairs will get made before the beach but I'm going to make these fish up because I know my brother would love them. The others I will set aside to work on whenever I need something quick and easy to fill in between projects. These will probably add to my own collections.
Clearly, I've got plenty to keep me occupied for the next few days.
