I just spent 3 whole days without internet service and it was grueling. I wonder how many emails went missing… I didn’t have near my normal amount of spam and only a few personal emails! I did get quite a bit of stitching done, though. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish without email, message boards, or blogs to distract! I finished up a little squirrel block for exchange (shown above), 2 more bookmarks, and my 2008 calendar design–yay!
Last Saturday, I took my MIL to my favorite quilt shop and lucky us they were having a super sale… all FQs were $1 each! When we got home I took a pic of a few of them and started to put them away but left them out instead, thinking I’d do some sewing right away. That was Saturday and today is what? Thursday?! OK, I’m getting out the sewing machine today NO MATTER WHAT.
Here’s the ferry pic I promised last week. It’s really small and a bit charming, I think. This one is the Golden Eagle Ferry, which shuttles across the Mississippi river between MO and IL. I was thinking that maybe my daughter and I would hop the ferries some schooldays (lots of educational topics there– rivers, geography, lock & dam systems, transportation, occupations, etc.) but the ferry trip turned out to be a bit pricey for casual, repeat “hopping”. Better to condense the lessons and culminate with a field trip, I think.
