Day 273 of 2021

I took pictures of two other subjects earlier in the day 
but then this gorgeous sky appeared before me 
in several different ways as I was out and about. 
It was mesmerizing at every stage.

Day 271 of 2021

Semi-secret sewing for a special day tomorrow.

 

Day 270 of 2021

In the process of explaining to GB#2 how and why my new phone case
 makes it easier to take photos, 
we ended up with a pretty decent picture of the two of us.

Day 266 of 2021

We're getting organized for a yard sale tomorrow. 
Good thing we have a supervisor to keep us focused on the job.

Day 265 of 2021

Today is the first day of fall. 
To commemorate the autumnal equinox when my kids were growing up, 
we would stand the egg on end. 
It has been said only to work on the two equinoxes. 
I don't know if it is true or not, but it is always fun. 
Today I couldn't get the egg to stand, but you get the idea, right? 
Happy Fall for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere.

Day 264 of 2021

I found a new drawing on the chalkboard. 
I'm not sure who did the drawing, 
but I always appreciate a smiling face.

Day 263 of 2021

The garage project that sent us to the hardware store required a second trip, 
but we are very happy with the results. 
Our yard chairs are are all in one place, 
off the floor and we even have room for our picnic bags and blankets. 
Of course, holes will need to be filled and painting will eventually get done, 
but one small win is still a win.

Day 261 of 2021

One of our garage projects got stalled today due to a missing part. 
A late evening visit to Lowe's was in order
 and we were rewarded with a nearly empty parking lot 
and this beautiful sky.

Day 260 of 2021

We cleaned, cleaned out and organized more of the garage today. 
Most of today's work was concentrated in the workshop 
which is an extension off the back of the main garage area.

Day 259 of 2021

I'm setting myself up for success. 
I pressed, cut and pinned the fabric for more masks. 
I didn't have time to sew today so I set them on the machine, 
ready to go for the morning.

Day 258 of 2021

Fireball and I spent all day cleaning out in the garage. 
You would only know progress has been made if you are a family member. 
Pictures would certainly not tell the real story. 
We do always find interesting things we don't remember having,
 things we haven't seen in a while, 
and things we know we don't need anymore.

Day 257 of 2021

I'm making school masks for little ones. 
GB#4 had the good taste to pick dogwoods from Paducah for one of hers.

Day 256 of 2021

Today I'm planning a couple new builds. 
Since I took this photo, I think I've figured out dimensions 
so lumber shopping is on the to do list for tomorrow. 

And for those who are still wondering, 
I got no correct guesses as to what the new zipper bag is going to hold. 
So what is it?
It is a zipper bag for a cribbage board and pegs for T-bone. 
There is probably room inside to keep the deck of cards too if he wants. 
Thanks for playing along.

Day 255 of 2021

It's back to games with spectators. 
I made Colts masks for the occasion.

Day 252 of 2021

Another day, another quilt top.

 

Day 251 of 2021

For my birthday, Fireball and I had a nice lunch out 
and made a small road trip to an antique mall. 
I found this fun butterfly quilt top. 
It was a good day.

Day 250 of 2021

Hey, I made a thing. 
What is it? 
Yes, we all can see that it's a zipper pouch, but what is its purpose? 
What is it?

Day 249 of 2021

Today I am fixing all the broken things. 
Why, when I could just have easily tossed them in the trash? 
Because I can, and I like fixing things.

Day 248 of 2021

Today I brought out the play food and dishes for the girls. 
I also found the bag of play money. 
We had so much fun.

Day 247 of 2021

You know you're tired when you grab the wrong small blue flowered case
 to measure your knitting
 but continue trying to find the tab to pull out the measuring tape
 way too long before you realize 
you are holding your earbud case.

Day 245 of 2021

I finished my Sew Together Bag a couple days ago. 
I love the way it turned out. 
There is so much room inside. 
I keep thinking of different ways to use it, like a sewing kit, toiletry bag, 
holder for colored pens and pencils, and so much more. 
I guess I am destined to make more.
