Day 212 of 366

I thought about making this the next "what is it?" but decided against it.
It's just a paper napkin ring, but I really like the picture.

Day 211 of 366

More work happened on my woodworking project today.
Here's a sneak peek at the green stain
through a most important hole in the top of the piece
which I'll explain when it's all done.

This was the result of a baking experiment.
It may not be pretty but it was delicious.
Success!

Day 204 of 366

My hands are very sensitive.
I have not been able to wear my wedding rings for a while without breaking out.
I got a new ring (sterling silver) to wear as a wedding band.

Day 203 of 366


Little Lady and I worked on my bucket of 36-patch blocks today.
Two were completed.  Many more await completion.
But the hard part, cutting and pairing fabrics, is done.

Day 200 of 366

The story of today goes like this:
Fireball brings home my favorite knitting magazine that he has found at the book store.
T-Bone and CJ come over for dinner and CJ notices the cute owl on the cover.
We begin to discuss "The Owl and the Pussycat" which no one seems to remember.
I find the book with the poem in it and read it to T-Bone, CJ and M.
Nope.  No one has heard it before.
I cannot figure out how I have failed as a mother.

Day 199 of 366

Here is the identity of the items in the photo on Day 191.
Many of you were very close,
but Joanne was exactly correct!
Good job, Joanne, and thanks to everyone for playing.

Day 197 of 366

I thought I'd play with a water shot today.
While I'm not completely happy with the result, I do like the effect.
I will certainly be trying more of these.

Day 194 of 366

This guy was sitting in this tree for a very long time.
I kept getting closer taking pictures all the while.
At first I thought he might be young and learning to fly,
but the closer I got I concluded that he got roughed up somehow
and was taking a much needed rest.
This is as close as I got with the 85mm lens before he flew off.

Day 193 of 366

I've had the yarn for a while.
I bought the needles today and cast on.
Excitement fills the air.

Day 188 of 366

As disclosed at the Gender Reveal Party,
Grandbaby #2 (due in November) is a girl!
Yesterday's fabric purchase was used as table coverings
and will see a second life in a future quilting project.
If this weren't a one picture a day project, I'd show you the lovely decorations.

Day 187 of 366

I bought some new fabric today.
I'll "reveal" what that's all about tomorrow.

Happy Fourth!

Day 185 of 366

I've had some time to work on my "Twister."
There is still more to go but I'm pretty happy with it so far.
