My Bear Paw blocks for my new "Cabin Cozy" design just walked out of the cabin, and started walking up a tree right outside of my front door.
By the end of the day, some tree blocks found themselves outside with Mazey standing guard over them. She didn't want any squirrels running off with any of the blocks.
I am using "Folk Art Flannel 4" designed by Janet Rae Nesbitt for Henry Glass Fabrics. I've enjoyed working with this high-quality, 2-ply flannel. As a general rule, I don't quilt with flannel. My last two shipments from Henry Glass have been flannel, so now I'll have two flannel quilts to my name.
This is a view of our sun for the past two weeks. It's just a big orange ball that reflects orange light on our world here in California. It is other-worldly, dark, and depressing. Our eyes and throats are burning, so we pretty much stay inside for most of the day. The air is hazardous to unhealthy most days. Poor Mazey hasn't gotten many walks or runs over the past two weeks. If the air is bad for us, it has to be worse for her when she runs.
I just listened to the forecast, and it sounds like the winds are going to change and blow this smoke away. The only problem is that it will then become Nevada's problem.
My sister Gail, and our cousin Melody will be here for dinner tonight. If I remember, I'll take a picture and post the recipe of our delicious, Tuscan, garlic, shrimp pasta dinner. This recipe gets a 4-star rating in my book.
I have to scoot and process my Etsy orders this morning. Then I have a Quilt Guild meeting via Zoom. Then I have to get to the grocery store. Then I have to clean the house. I think I need help!
