Wednesday, April 14, 2021 — More plants for the layout arrived today, and even though it was COLD and the wind was fierce, I got the plants in the ground, fed and watered.
Joanne of Cup on the Bus mentioned that she had lost her crochet hook. I wrote and told her I thought I had one (or two–LOL) So I broke out my collection of hooks and sorted out a 0 and a 00, photographed them and e-mailed her to verify this was what she was in need of. It was indeed, so I packaged the two up and put them in the mail to her this morning. Here’s a photo of ‘the collection’ a combination of mine, my step-mother-in-law’s and my mother-in-law’s collection. My second step-mother-in-law didn’t do any crafting at all, and when she did, years ago, she worked in ceramics, painting greenware and having it fired. I’ve done a bit of that myself, years ago. For whatever reason, I was never all that fond of it as a craft. I really prefer fabric or paper. Speaking of which, here’s the latest completed quilt, which will go to the Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum’s gift shop:
I have two more quilts ready for binding — one has the binding sewn on but not sewn down on the back side, and the other has binding cut but not applied to the quilt. I have yet another set of fabrics set aside for another child’s quilt. After that, who knows what I’ll work on. Lots to choose from!
Be safe, take good care of yourself (I had my medication checkup today and obtained a referral for a second opinion from a different cardiologist), and agreed that if he recommended a pace maker, I would agree to it. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
