and a police update! Thanks for all the funny comments! Poor babies looked like criminals for sure! I'm happy to report that the victim was found unharmed under some gold homespun fabric on the sewing table. Evidently the rookie cop assigned to search that spot will be assigned to a desk for a while. Birdy was perfectly okay. Seems the "perps" tossed him aside to really get at the leaves and their freezer paper overcoats. I think he fled and went into hiding for safety myself! Since the quilt has several birds in various spots I'll keep his twin and put him someplace else. I swear I asked that cat all day where to find my bird.
I did get a couple more blocks done as well as the aforementioned bird placed in his rightful place on the next block waiting to be sewn down.
The bird blocks...red bird, blue bird and a nice crow...
and the flying geese block. I love this block, it's so colorful.
I'm getting the last of the buttons sewn on the top section of Sweet Land of Liberty so I'll make sure to show that tomorrow or the next day. I'm not sure how much I'm going to sew tonight, I'm tired and I just got the tree up with the lights on and the garland strung. Can I stop there? Does it really have to have ornaments? Never wait this late to put up the tree. I know for me it's too late and I feel tired and like I won't get enough enjoyment from all the work. Of course I could just be whining...nah, not me.
I got the only store shopping I had to do done quickly today with almost no crowds! Target on Mondays is slow?? Who knew? I picked up 3 things for hubby, 2 for me *s*, and one from SANTA. See ya tomorrow!
