Labor Day Sewing

I hope at least some of you had a restful labor day. I know a lot of people still had to work. I had the day off, so Tuesday felt like a double Monday.

Still, Monday was perfect. After days of rain, we got some sun, and I surveyed the garden to see how things were doing. I have grown one perfect strawberry. It was very good.

Nim spent quality time in his beloved dirt troughs.

I got to sew! I finished all the pieces for a scrappy quilt I am working on. Ultimately I will sew everything in a chain, but I wanted to do one block just to see how it is coming together.

I love it! Somehow mine are slightly different than the pattern, but I don't have the patience to figure out why. Knowing my luck when I chain sew the rest of it I will do one minor thing differently and this block will be the odd one out.

It was just nice to sew a little again.


  1. Isn't it a little late for strawberries? Too bad you didn't have more. It will be interesting to see how your quilt comes out. I take it the kitties haven't messed up your piles yet.

    1. I feel like it was really late. I don't know what that plant was up to. It sent out one beautiful little fruit. :)

      Oh, they did. I found some of my light blocks on the floor this morning.

    1. I know. Isn't that odd? It was a really good one too. It is like all the effort went there.
