I've been playing around with the border for my Grammy Squares quilt. I think I've got it! A nosegay made out of hexagons with a few ribbons. The fat ribbons on the top are going to be trimmed down in the final version.
Nosegay is such an odd word. Is this cluster of flowers a joyous moment for the nose? How about calling it eyegay? Or hexigay? Whatever I call it, I like the look.
I also made 15 more ornaments for some more table runners. I've pulled out every piece of plaid fabric I own to add to them.
Today there will be bows!
Now a Mazey story. Yesterday at O'dark hundred, while I was at the table posting to the blog, Mazey started growling. She never growls. She almost never makes a peep except for her excessive burping. I let her go out on the deck which is elevated high above the ground. As I watched her from the dining room window, she started to tremble while looking through the railing at the ground below. Then I started to tremble. I went outside to get her back inside, and I saw what scared her. Not a bear as I first feared, but a very healthy-looking coyote. Neither barked or howled or made a sound. Their eyes were locked on to each other until the coyote overstayed his welcome then strolled off into the woods with that, "come hither" look. I think it's time for "the talk" about the birds and the bees. Mr. Joe called Mazey's veterinarian immediately to make a very special appointment.....soon.
