Nothing busted again, but I'm planning on serious busts starting Monday. Today will be cooking and doing some cleaning, and I seriously doubt I'll even touch the Bernina.
I did try to work on a BOM block yesterday, but the one attempt at chain piecing some HSTs was a disaster. I hadn't secured the bobbin in and had a bird's nest of thread on the back of the blocks. So those seams were unsewed and there they sit. Maybe today.
I thought I was purchase-free this week, but spotted an unopened box last night. A tower of Shirtings and a pattern. These fabrics will go well with patriotics or in the blue/shirtings quilt AND the basket blocks. So a good purchase. I love getting bundles - or towers, as I call them. Such a neat package of fabrics, but it's a lot of fabric. In this instance, 10 yards. Yikes!
Penny was such a big help to me yesterday while I was sweeping the patio. I swept all the leaves up in a pile and went inside to get a trash bag. Came back out and she was having a ball running through the pile and scattering them everywhere! It was funny ... she's funny ... yes, I had to sweep again. :) While I was on the phone with Jane last night, Penny decided she should play right by me with her talking ball and bark at it. She made us both laugh. :)
