It's been a little bit since I have stopped by, so I thought I would catch up you. Last week I had a minor health glitch that kept me down for a few days and quiet. I have also spent a lot of time away from the computer working on projects that have been waiting to be finished, so it's all been good.
Pictured above is the little quilt I have been working on for my youngest grandson, Finley. I started it before he was born and now that I have some free time, I was finally able to get the entire top pieced and put together. Of course it has been such a long time since I have used my longarm machine, I had to watch videos on how to load it up for quilting..sheesh! I had hoped to bring it down to him tomorrow as we are heading out for his big brother Jax's birthday party, but I think it would be wise for me to work on a practice quilt first to get the hang of it again.
I've also been working on a wee sweater for him as well and this should be finished and ready to go tomorrow, so there is that at least, right? I want to make one for my other little grandson, Asher, who just turned one this week, but he is pretty sensitive to wool. I just need to find which one of my wools hopefully will not irritate his skin (or use acrylic?..eek!)
On another note, a blog friend of mine started posting Macro May pictures, so I decided to join along with her in taking one Macro picture every day as well. It's been fun playing with my old macro lens again. I forgot just how close this lens can get when used manually (1:1).
I put this particular picture on here today to remind everyone that dandelions are one of a bees first Spring foods, so if you can leave some of those dandelions around for them, I know they will be thankful and it's important to keep our little Bee sisters around pollinating the foods that we eat every single day.
So with that I am off to finish a little sweater.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
