In the mountains storms roll in fast…but stay long enough to drench everything in sight before moving on.
This photo was taken just a bit ago ---it interrupted some bush trimming ---Good for the bushes, but bad for our plans to get the yard in shape this weekend. Rain coming down in SHEETS!
The lightning and thunder were so close I begged off of staying on the front porch to watch it rage….that was too close for comfort for me! It was flashing and booming and VERY VERY close. I felt safer in the basement.
This is some of what’s going on here:
I’ve been sewing strips!
I’ve been cutting and making a complete mess at my cutting table!
And this may not look like much but ---
I’ve been digging through all the smaller scraps and short strips and cutting pairs of half-square triangles for this year’s Split 9 Patch Leader & Ender Challenge. I need a whole variety of half-square triangles to make the blocks happen. So I’m focusing on those right now until I have enough variety to start making the blocks themselves. I've been using them as Leaders & Enders all weekend long so far, and what you see in the green basket are completed, pressed and de-dog-earred ones ready to roll! The stack in front are those ready to be sewn as I need an ender. They are piling up quite quickly!
Oh, and today’s funny:
This how you know the sports fan in the house is bored with all the rain and deeply depressed over last night's Boise State Loss to Washington. He has separated out the Boise State colors from the back-stock of m&ms.
