Greetings From the Cabin,
Lynn's sidekick Gail here (AKA "Ethel") from Sweat Shop Central. Lynn has turned over the reins to me this morning for this post, at least until she rebuts what I have to say. We have been open for business again the last several days as we have been CRANKING out blocks for a duplicate version of Butterscotch Baskets for RJR Fabrics in Lynnette Jensen's beautiful fabric line Autumn Landscape.
Now why would we want to do this, you ask? Well, it seems that Butterscotch Baskets, after her popular debut in Salt Lake City last month, has taken a liking to this popularity and has "hit the road" first to Minnesota and then she will travel to "the land down under". This wayward traveler could be in Australia through year end. So by making a duplicate, we will have one to circulate here.
My job has been to work on the 80 Ohio Star blocks in this quilt. I am getting help from "the boss", however. She has cut out all the blocks and has paired up and marked the squares for the quarter square triangles. Now why would she do this, you ask? Well, I think she is feeling guilty because there is not a cookie to be found at the cabin! It seems that "the boss" and Mr. Joe are on a diet. I may have to raid Mazey's dog biscuits but I understand those are in short supply, too!
Note the iron in the photo below. This is Lynn's iron. Mine went up in smoke yesterday from over use! We ended up with 24 Ohio Star blocks done with 8 more in various stages and "the boss" got 14 pinwheels done! We are well on our way!
Note all the packages below. This is my "homework" as Sweat Shop Central opens a branch office at my house in Benicia later today.
We did take a few strolls around the lake the last several days. Poor little Mazey, Auntie Gail was holding onto her leash a little too tightly. She looks like Popeye below. Remember, I am a cat person and am not used to this dog walking stuff. I hope she will forgive me.
Stay tuned as "Lucy and Ethel" hit the road next week for our longest road trip ever. We will be on our way to Fortuna, way up near the Oregon border. We are taking reinforcements, however, for this longer trip. Mr. Joe and our cousin, Melody are going to join us.
Until next time, enjoy your quilting days, everyone!
