Here is my Rachel. I seem to have another naked bird.
Not sure why it looks so crooked on the bottom. But I finished the right border, and that line on the bottom is the beginnings of grass. Looks like everything should meet up border-wise. Yay! Not as much done as I'd like, but these things happen.
This next picture has my TUSAL orts in it. It also has a lovely gift I received from Melinda at Merry Wind Farm. Melinda saw my post with the skeleton keys I bought from the antique store. She sent me a key from her grandfather's collection.
I love the key -- a very substantial one! -- and the card she sent too. Thanks so much, Melinda!
And there are my orts for the month. Lots of red from the flowers in Rachel's border.
The other day I went to a local quilt store just for fun. It's a small one, but it carries things like Oakshott fabric and Daiwabo. I came home with a few fat quarters of various sorts, laid my bag on the bed, turned my back for a minute, and this is what I saw when I came back.
It's hard to tell from the pic, but that's my Oakshott fabric to her right and underneath her. lol! The rest is in the bag. I guess Mia loves fabric too. lol!
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
ETA: Just wanted to add this in. The boy child is fine. He is at my sister's house for the 3 day weekend. He will be riding in to Boston tomorrow assuming classes are on. There were no classes today, so he was not in Boston and wasn't close to the bombings, thank God. My heart is heavy. I am saying prayers for those affected by this tragedy.
