It appears that I have the best intentions regarding blogging - but it's only happening about once a week.
Last Sunday I attended the Plano Balloon Fest with Russ - he's on the "Moo Crew" and we help out each year. The festival was pretty much a complete bust - the temperature was great, but the wind was too much to fly. We did decide at the last minute (once the winds died down a little) to inflate the small balloon on the field for the crowd. We have a giant cow balloon (otherwise known as the "big" balloon), but there's no way we could have held her down with the winds.
On one of my many trips to the post office this week, Audrey and I saw this hawk on the field next to the PO. A guy in his truck said he saw it zoom in over the freeway and zero in on a mouse in the grass. We watched the hawk play with it for a minute or two, but traffic was backing up behind us and we had to go. It was surreal to see a predator bird do his work at 6:00 in the evening!
I took a couple of days off this week (burnout is certainly knocking on MY door!) and after I did a few chores, I began playing with my 2-1/2" strip bin. Before I knew it, I had a complete quilt. It's Bonnie's Strip Twist pattern! And it all came from my stash.
I'm now playing with her Scrappy Bargello pattern. I have 2 and a half panels done....It's great to sew for fun again. I know it won't last, but I'll enjoy it while I can.
Have a great week,
