|Beyond the Cherry Tree #16|
This week I've been playing with the Little Boxes pattern. Mindless chain piecing, I needed some of that. Here it is so far--
Looks a bit confusing, the birds in air blocks are peeking out from underneath. The pattern used 2" strips, but I resized it to use 2.5" strips from my noodle box.
No borders for DeeDee's Star quilt. Inspiration has not stuck.
Last week Henrietta and I road tripped--visited Sertoma Butterfly House. There were lots of butterflies. Thousands. But Henrietta made sure I met "Lucy".
|Lucy--A Mexican Tarantula|
Lucy is very docile and would ride around all day on the volunteer clinging to her shoulder or back. Children would hold her. Henrietta said her abdomen felt like soft leather, and the hairs on her legs soft like cat fur. Lucy can live to be 40 years old! She was a "rescue spider"--donated by someone who knew Lucy would be enjoyed by many at the butterfly house.
I better get busy, I'm running out of weekend! How did you spend your week?
