The lines " I wish I knew the people..." words haunt me these days.
My Genealogy class starts in September. I'm really looking forward to it. I wrote a post on "My Mulberry Days" ("I never knew them") last week about this. You can go there is this is of any interest to you.
And returning to the present... school starts tomorrow here in Texas! And the weather is a tiny bit cooler... 74 F this Sunday morning! (And the forecast is for possible rain today and tomorrow)
Worked on a strange small cat quilt this weekend. I read about doing a kind of 'backwards quilt' where you sew the wrong sides together and end up with fuzzy material between the pieces. I did it but did it wrong as I cut the fabric between the pieces too short... and was supposed to cut them vertically 1/4 inch apart (so they would *bloom* upon washing), but instead cut them horizontally too short... so I didn't get the fuzzies like I wanted. But I did learn by my mistake. Anyway, here's what it looks like... a bit strange... but I kind of like it (and the cats don't seem to care).
A while back I re-arranged the bookcase in what used to be the dining room and is now the grandkids' game room. The cabinet was previously full of books, toys, and games. However... more space for pottery pieces was needed, so I decided to share the cabinet with the kids. Now some of my pottery is on the top 2 shelves and their books and games take up the bottom 2.
These on the top shelf are some pieces I did this summer. The 2 on the upper right are examples of our adventure into Raku firing.
The one in the picture above came out interesting. And the little one with the black top here in front and the beige one in the far right were done this summer also.
This little one was also Raku firing. The bottom third came out neat...
And of course I kept the bottom 2 shelves for the kids' books and games...
Have a wonderful week!
