Day 89 of 2019
GB#2 and GB#4 had a cheer competition today.
They both did so well,
but the pick for picture of the day goes to GB#2, the little flyer.

Day 88 of 2019
Even with a wedding happening next year,
(Oh, did I tell you M is engaged?)
I think I can let go of this sixteen year old Bride's Book of Etiquette.

Day 84 of 2019
I'm thinking of Mom and celebrating her birthday.
She would have been 90 today.
Happy Birthday, Mom.

Day 79 of 2019
This is my design wall or should I say my giant bulletin board.
It seems that I use it more to pin up color inspirations in the form of napkins,
greeting cards, papers and magazine pages.
It is the home to orphan and test blocks, hand written instructions,
origami, crochet and quotes.
A favorite childhood blouse of mine wants to take center stage,
but now I need the space to display my current project
to make the arrangement, and subsequent rearrangement, of blocks easier.
I worked here all afternoon but wasn't able to get the wall clear.
I first have to tackle all the yarn and yarn projects
that sit in tote bags in front of the design wall.
I worked on that today.

Day 78 of 2019
I attended the opening of a new quilt exhibition.
It highlights traditional, antique and vintage quilts.
The log cabin at the top was one of my favorites.
The little "logs" measure one half inch each.

Day 77 of 2019
I unearthed this from my table.
I have no idea how it got there and wonder if these two are missing it.

Admittedly I don't have that many green sewing notions,
but I rounded up what I could find to wish you a
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Day 74 of 2019
Three hundred twenty-seven stitches.
Section three, seed stitch, in CC2 (contrast color two) is done.
The fourth and last section will begin tomorrow.
And I will think about starting the weaving in process
so it doesn't overwhelm me by leaving it all until the end.

"I see skies of blue and clouds of white."
This is very special to me.
What is it?
No fair answering if you are in my immediate close family.
I know you know.

Day 72 of 2019
Here is my obligatory annual photo
of what is usually the earliest sign of spring at my house.
This is one of our tiny snow crocuses or Crocus Chrysanthus.
There used to be more yellow ones and a few light purple as well,
but I have not been tending my garden very well the past few years
so they have not been thriving.
I love that the remaining few insist on showing up.

Day 71 of 2019
This is how you play "Train Dominoes," right?
Build some tracks in spokes (matching numbers where possible),
connect the spokes,
all engines go for a ride,
build a barricade around a few engines,
other engines to the rescue,
remaining dominoes cover all engines,
hub descends upon domino mound,
uncertain number of survivors...

Next up: geese.
One hundred and eight of them.
A test block revealed a cutting problem which has been remedied.

Day 69 of 2019
I was looking for a particular date from last year's Bullet Journal
when I came across several pages like this.
I miss the colors and the doodles.
It may be time to put some in my current calendar.

Day 67 of 2019
Fireball and I got married over forty years ago.
Today we happened to be in the town where our wedding took place.
For some reason I thought about the mints we had at our reception and
found that the store was still in business.
They still carried the Dutch mints I love so much so I bought some
and a honeycomb for good measure.

Day 66 of 2019
It appears the tree is leaking.
And for all those who were curious as to "what is it?"
from Day 61, here is the full picture of my mystery item.
Still curious? I know.
It kind of looks like a piece of raw chicken to me.
This item is a piece of Play-Doh that GB#3 created
after his focus shifted from "ice cream cone" (tan, pink and white)
to something else.
It is no longer in this state but is now a pinkish, tan-ish solid blob.
Isn't it amazing how quickly the colors cease to be the original colors?

Day 65 of 2019
I made something with this fun fabric for M.
Since I made it and sent it off in the mail to her,
and I like my gifts to be surprises,
and she does look at my pictures here,
I couldn't post a picture of it before she received it,
so my picture of the day is this one of the fabric.
But of course, I took a picture before I sent it.
Here is the cute little zipper bag for the Hanukkah cookie cutters I bought.
I wanted them to have a nice place to live so as not to get lost.

New color. New stitch.
The new color is true to life but the first two are still not coming out well.
They are really a soft gray and navy blue.
I will keep trying.

Day 63 of 2019
I always wear an apron while I am working in the kitchen.
I have one favorite apron that I wear all the time.
This makes it very difficult when that one apron is in the laundry
and I need to work in the kitchen.
With that in mind and some time in my studio, listening to a book,
I finished a duplicate apron which I started a while back
with a pattern I traced from the original apron.
It is amazing how little time some of these small finishes actually take.
Now I have a set of rotating aprons.

I know this looks bizarre.
What is it?
Edit: Reveal of the answer can be found on Day 66 of 2019.

Day 60 of 2019
I did my hair.
I put on real clothes.
I'm about to head out the door.
I'm calling this day a win already.
