It being Father's Day, I bet many are involved in family get togethers. I told DJ "Happy Dad's Day" but only because it is a special day for him as I, in no way, think of him as MY dad. That honor is reserved for a special man back in IL. I love you.
So before I make myself any more homesick, it has been a pretty quiet day around my house. DJ left earlier to play golf and then later was watching golf--the US Open being played this weekend though he was intermittently switching over to the Cub game.
I was listening to two public radio programs that I enjoy and then switched over to the Cardinal game online while I sewed. We are both Cardinal fans from way back but rarely get to see them play since we are out of market--Gameday Audio and Gameday at least lets us stay aware of what is happening. He watches the Braves because that is what IS on in our market.
I finished up this top a little bit ago. You saw the pile of 4 patch stuff in the previous post so that is the part I made--the rest was assembly. I have Cher and the Portland Piecers to thank for the friendship stars. She said that the blocks were some made for National Quilting Day at the local quilt shop where they meet. They were given to their group and then passed onto me.
Other than perhaps piecing some binding and winding some bobbins (again!), I am done for the day. I had toyed with the idea of putting a white border on the outside with a little four patch for corner blocks but it is big enough like it is. I am not crazy about putting on borders anyway so I'm not gonna, LOL. Other than that not much going on--tomorrow will be walking, grocery shopping and start quilting on the that pile of quilts.
This is how Pippi spent a chunk of her day. Actually I am happy that she has re-discovered her perch. When we came back from our trip a month ago and even a bit before that, she would NOT get on here for anything. Quite odd as it was always one of her favorite spots. (That and lolling about on my bed and her catnap box in the living room.) She has another perch in the sewing room and would not/will not get on it either. I would prefer this to the microwave if I were her but who knows what goes on in their little heads? It didn't dump her on the floor or fall off the Velcro---I don't get it.
The across the street neighbors MAY have gotten a new dog--looked like a little black lab or lab mix and Pippi knew it. So did I when I heard puppy whining/barking during the night and early this morning. Just what this neighborhood does not need is another barking dog. There are about 7 or 8 in the immediate areas as it is. SIGH
Guess that's about it for today---catch you later.
