Thursday's Blubbering...

Another 4 blocks! I'm getting a little closer! These bring me to a total of 45 blocks!!! I wanted to have at least 50 of them done before I showed them to mom this weekend. I pick her up tomorrow but I probably won't show them to her until Saturday! Need to give her a little time to unpack! So I should be able to do 5 more blocks!





Got a few things to do today, nothing major just cleaning house, clean out some horse stalls :(, switch some horses around, and I really need to work on Storm's mane! Beauma and Storm bite on each other all of the time, just playing but she has chewed out a big spot of his mane! I was so mad!!! So now one section is alot shorter than the other and wants to stick straight up. So I plan on braiding it and leaving it in for a few days. I did that last time and it layed down pretty good after that. He looks funny when I do that because he has about 50 little braids, sorta like dreads!!! Oh and I have a bushel of corn that I need to put in the freezer!!!

I snapped these photos of Donkey last night and this morning. He likes to lay beside me when I sew and I am messy and didn't realize that he was laying right beside the chair until I started to get up. He didn't seem to mind the snippets and threads!!! And the other photo is how he was sleeping this morning!!!



Anyway, I'm off to get everything started and done so I can rest!!!!

You really are moving right along. And Donkey looks good in his "threads." I too, need to get out to the barn and shorten/thin manes down - not showing has it's drawbacks....

I love the pinks and browns in the quilt blocks. You've made a lot of progress on them.
Donkey is so precious! I love the picture of him covered in scraps and string. That's cat heaven! Kitties love to lay on the projects you're working on. Even better it involved string...what cat wouldn't be happy with that?!!

I think Donkey and Stanley are kindrid spirits. He likes to lie right beside me when I'm sewing aswell. Mal can always tell what I'm working on by the colour of the thread on the dog.

Love an dhugs Gina xxx

You get so much done! You put me to shame here.

Isn't having a kitty at your feet when you sew the best thing? Don't know how we got along before we got Paris.

I am sure you will have 50 blocks to show your mother on Saturday.

Each time you show us blocks I love those more than the other ones. It's going to be one beautiful quilt. Donkey cracks me up and to think you really didn't want him at first.
