Keith and I biked to Ballast Point for lunch today and as we were sitting outside eating, the squirrels were watching us … this particular one was up on a ledge near our table and I laughed and said that he looked like he was ready to pounce and even took a photo of him … just a few minutes later he did POUNCE but quickly ran off when I screamed! Seriously, I never really expected him to jump on me but as Keith said later, he had that look that Finn does just before he jumps in your lap!
After my trauma, I came home and made some more string blocks … a couple years ago we did a HeartStrings block drive and made light and dark blocks. I made a set and sent them in but have always wanted to make another set and finish the quilt myself. Here’s my set from two years ago …
And here are the blocks I have done today … that center strip is actually a dark brown not a black fabric.
I also got the HST diamond quilt trimmed and the binding is machine stitched on and ready for hand stitching and I started just one more hat … there was enough of the skein leftover for another beanie so I decided I’d go ahead and knit it now but I am going to start a blanket after this one!
