Working at Home With the Girls
Slow work day (yeah!) so I actually got to play in my sewing room this afternoon. I cleaned my Beloved Janome, filled bobbins and worked on the April BOM from the HGTV message board. I am so out of practice that I messed it up. I destroyed the flying geese! I need to decide if I am going to go redo them.
The girls were angels. They each had a kong and hung out in the sewing room with me. Pearl was amazingly good and Evelyn just looked so relaxed. She has always enjoyed crashing out while I putter around and she seemed happy to see me piecing. For some inexplicable reason, the song "Bad Bad Leroy Brown" was stuck in my head. I'm thinking the guys who recorded that never thought some little old lady would be humming it while working on a pink and green quilt block.
I've been watching the news, this evening, and Midwest City and Choctaw (near Oklahoma City) are on fire. The news is just awful. Many homes have burned to the ground. I feel so sorry for those people. Our house seems okay but grassfires in Oklahoma can be pretty treacherous.
Here are a bunch of pictures I took, today.
