This past Sunday was a football Sunday. DH watched all day while I ran errands. Almost finished first lap-size quilt (and yes, I'm slow). But I did run into some delays as the belt on the old Singer broke just as I started sewing the binding on. That had to be repaired. But I went out today to get the fabric for the borders on the 2nd lap-size one. With any luck, I'll have this next one done before Thanksgiving.
Of course I still have to finish our pottery project - which so far for me involves *clay goblets*. There are apparently several ways to throw goblets on the wheel. I've tried doing them in 2 parts... throwing cup and stem separately and then attaching. Then there's throwing them all in one piece - which actually is easier. Then there are several other ways that are as individual as the potter. I keep intending to take some pics at the studio, but almost always get busy and forget.
BTW, how are you with names? I'm awful remembering people's names. There are people that I've been doing pottery with for several semesters and only this semester for some reason, I'm retaining all their names. Before I only remembered 2 or 3. And then there's the Painting people in the studio next to us that I eat lunch with (actually I don't eat lunch, but go with them to the campus cafeteria and have a cup of tea while they eat). I don't go with the pottery people as they go off campus and since I don't eat...) But in the Painting group, I only know maybe 3 of their names. Then there's my genealogy class...
Back on the home front, some of my plants out front are doing well...
Some I had to remove when the summer heat was too much for them. But these 2 seem to be holding their own... and enjoying the slightly cooler weather.
And I have to show you this little critter who I found in our shower this morning. Our cats would have loved to play with him, but I figured that he was scared enough for one day. So I rescued him and put him outside... to live another day.
Have a good week!
I'm simply no good at names. Never have been, worse now.ReplyDelete
Our plants are winding down, but the mandevilla still looks wonderful. And the snapdragons.
I love mandevilla!Delete
I'm wondering how the gecko managed to get to your bathtub in a houseful of kitties!ReplyDelete
Good question. But he was in the shower, not the bathub... still?Delete
I have to make a point to remember names but what I really struggle to remember is phone numbers. Of course, now with smart phones, I don't really have to know the numbers anymore so it works out.ReplyDelete
I don't know any phone numbers since smart phones took over the planet... and not even my own landline since we gave up the number we had for over 30 years when we switched to Times-Warner. Besides, hardly anyone calls on the landline anymore.Delete
love the skeleton on the books, what a statementReplyDelete
BTW, the books are all ceramic except for the very bottom one...Delete
I am the same with names. Eventually they attach themselves to a person, but it takes awhile. Love the little gecko you rescued from certain death! :-)ReplyDelete
Well, there are cats outside too... but I put him in a large potted plant so maybe he'd have a chance.ReplyDelete
