Monster trucks finished at 48 x 54″ and will be a great boy quilt. I’ll put it aside until just the right boy happens along for this quilt. I have cut out the backing for the Jinny Beyer wall hanging and that’s as far as I got before I had to go to the dentist.
Routine cleanings just aren’t routine anymore. That took nearly 2 hours and then there was traffic to contend with on the way home. So this is today’s limit.
The trash has been hauled from the barn and there are now lights in the barn. It’s great that some things get done without my direct supervision. That is today’s wrap.
Another flimsy – the Jenny Beyer wall hanging is now ready to be quilted. This means I really need to use the quilting machine next week if I’m to get any finishes this month.
Today was a beautiful day and I did get the grocery shopping and laundry done as well. Sunday, we are scheduled for the rest of the shearing. And today our big (200# plus) ram moved to a new home. He will have 60 acres to roam with many females. I hope he’s happy. He was becoming dangerous to humans here. Still he was handsome and I will miss him.
The Monster trucks flimsy is now in one piece. The piece at the right with trucks will be the backing, when I get time to quilt this. Right now, with all that is going on, I’m just happy to have this all in one piece. Yes, I know there is a mistake and it is going to stay there at least for now and maybe forever. There has been very little sewing time this week.
Sunday, I have been promised the rest of the sheep will be sheared. Today another Shetland was bawling, so I went to find out why. Of course she was on the far side of the pasture and when I came within two feet of her, she decided to lunge for the barn and that’s all it took for her to become disentangled from the blackberry vine. They have been eating the blackberries like they are candy which is great. But she must have cried for over 15 minutes before I got to her and then it was one long, loopy vine across her head and down one side. Once they have their heavy coats off, I want to say it should go better in the blackberries and roses, but I doubt it. I need to get coats and put on them to have better fleeces and my bet is they can get those coats caught on something. Sometimes sheep are smart and sometimes not.
