Have you been waiting for me to wake up? It has been so cold here, which makes it much easier to stay in bed all toasty and warm under a quilt and electric blanket. I'm enjoying my first cup of coffee for the morning and Zinnie is curled up at my feet. It was definitely a three-dog night last night here in the frozen woods.
Yesterday I finished all of the blocks for Butterscotch Baskets. Say Butterscotch Baskets Blocks three times fast. Go ahead, I'll wait........ By the second time, I'm saying Butterscotch Blastic Bocks. Anyway, they are finished and stitched together AND the instructions are written for this block. Now I can pass them on to my pattern tester Isabelle, and my sister Gail.
By late afternoon, and after the Stanford bowl game finished, we took Zinnie for a walk down to Snowflake Lake. Now say Snowflake Lake three times fast!
The lake is always drained in the winter. I guess the Homeowners Association doesn't want me ice skating on it. Not that I can ice skate. I only put shoes, snowshoes or hiking boots on my feet. Nothing with wheels, skinny blades or spiky heels touch these toes.
How about a round of golf? I will put golf spikes on my feet.....not that it helps my game!
I have another long to-do list. Yesterday during the bowl games, I ended up ripping out all of the setting triangles on Butterscotch Baskets, flanges and all. In my rush to get it together for the Preview Party, I cut the setting triangles the incorrect size. I could have made them work, but they would not have been up to my standards. So out they came and it gave me a good excuse to sit and watch the bowl games. So back to the drawing board today to get it RIGHT the second time!
I hope you get it RIGHT the first time today whatever you choose to do.
