We thought we had a mouse in the house. Saturday we figured out it was a mole. As I was watching my 12 year old son play guitar hero, it run across his foot!! We grabbed a glass and caught it. His father came along and we left my son, Clay, in his room with said mole. Before we had finished eating supper, I notice Clay going with a cap full of water and some cheese. Minutes later he brings him out in a small tote and announces his name is Carl or Carla!! When you are a red neck I guess you don't have to worry about a babysitter for your child, just catch a rodent and he will be amazed!! We went out dancing for a while, celebrating St Pat's day. When I got home I looked in on Carl. Clay had "gone into my scrap bag" and had sewn him a little cave of wool. When I poked him, I did not see any movement. The next morning Clay brought him out and declared he was not alive anymore! But his last hours were filled with cheese! Here is Carl/Carla
As some of you may know, I am working on a pattern for a class that I am going to be teaching. I thought it was a good opportunity for me to do what I love to do, design. I sketched it out last week and then made it. It worked to my amazement. I guess I thought it would, but I was genuinely excited when it did!! It is a beginners class, and I think this is a bit hard for that, but if I am teaching it, I should be able to walk them thu it. I have the write up done for the paper piecing part of the class, and upon my quilt friends approval, I can start working on the pattern. I have a ton of notes that need to be written up (or at least make sense to others). I have the paper pulled off and I think it looks finished. I was tempted to add another border. Here it is:
So what do you think? This is the first time I have done this, so any and all feedback will be appreciated. The border is a bit wonky, but that was my fault (didn't follow my own instructions!). I will make another as soon as I get the pattern written up. I always like to test it at least twice. I am looking forward to reading your reply!!!!!!!
