My time in Texas is getting short.
I fly back to New England on April Fool's Day.
I won't go into any details, but that's pretty significant.
I've been finishing up some of my projects,
and setting my daughter up with a few gifts for giving later.
Thought I had complete my Goodnight Irene QAL.
I used RJR charm squares and I had to square up every one of them
before I could cut them into 2.5" squares.
Some didn't even measure 5" on any side!
It was pretty frustrating and I wasn't very happy.
It took 4 charm packs because 1/3 of each charm pack
was yellow and blue.
I've purchase fabric for binding
and will layer it when I get back up to the island.
I've been learning how to crochet and have made my SIL
an afghan for his October birthday.
Since I won't be here, I wanted it finished and wrapped
before I leave.
He's 6'3" and this afghan is pretty close to 6 feet long.
Nothing like planning ahead, huh?
This poor excuse for a picture shows a set
I made for my daughter's next baby shower.
And with the left over fabric I made
a quick mug rug for her boss.
I just loved working with that orange polka-dot!
I know you were expecting a bird,
but this moth is almost as big!
This is a White-lined Sphinx Moth,
sometimes referred to as a Hummingbird Moth.
It's wing span of 2 - 3" wide!
I heard it banging against the light in the garage early one morning
and it was very loud. At first, I thought it WAS a bird!
Sure is pretty, for a moth.
This moth's range is throughout the United States,
extending north into southern and mid western Canada,
and south into Mexico.
I hope you are having a quilty week,
and are staying warm, safe, and busy.
I'm sure that spring is just around the corner.
Mother Nature, have mercy!
