Good Morning! How are you doing? We are holding our own here at Poodle Cottage. The days continue to be warmer. Last night we had the first thunder storm of the season and it created quite a light show in the sky!
I like some simple things this week. I have been cleaning out nooks and drawers every few days and discovering things I had forgotten about. One was a scarf that was torn but I stuck it in a cupboard so I could cut the buttons off. The buttons looked to me like mother of pearl and I was surprised when I turned the buttons over and found they were actually made of shells!
I continue to cut Scout's hair and tackled her back so that I could at least get her tick medicine on her. It looks okay for now.
We still go on long walks and I'm enjoying just getting out and seeing what is blooming. I wear a mask, not simply because of COVID-19 but because the trees are blooming and I'm allergic. Scout loves her walks but she loves front porches even more. Brad was walking Scout last week and I'm home and doing dishes and get this text:
She had climbed on Jessica's porch and her daughter sent me this text. Looks really happy and comfy there, doesn't she? The little traitor...
The color is off a bit on this photo but it's another "someday project" finished. This will look cute hanging up near my retro inspired kitchen! I have only two more quilts to bind and they are baby quilts at that.
Mostly I'm doing the same thing you are, making masks. I like that some of the elderly women in the neighborhood donated elastic because the elastic masks are quicker to make than the tie ones! Tomorrow I have to take a break and wash more fabric and I MUST clean the sewing room. I've been sewing so much that Scout's velcro fur is collecting threads and scraps whenever she hangs out in the sewing room! 😜
There isn't much on tv that I find inspiring these days so I just put HGTV on in the background while I'm sewing in the evening. What are you watching?
Other than that, we are fine and hoping to be able to work in the garden soon (pollen permitting). Stay in, stay safe and stay healthy friends! Have a wonderful day!
