My birthday will arrive in a couple of weeks and I will be celebrating my 65 years on this earth. I think I mentioned that my husband has been planning a surprise for me which will, in part, consist of an open house. I have been trying not to think about it as I don't want to be trying to guess what he is going to do. He did have to tell me about the open house as we will need to tidy up. Also, I suspect, have to rearrange furniture.
While I wait for this momentous event, I have been busy in, where else, my quilt room. I have been finishing up another project that has hung around for a while as well as designing a pattern for the web page. This is a foundation pieced pattern and I really like the way it is coming together. Lots of my favourite bright colours with a few others to give your eyes a break. The overall effect will be 3 dimensional; another of my favourites. I've always liked patterns that have hidden designs and this will have that.
Last night I gave our wee Heidi a bath and today she got her nails done. She had begun to smell doggy and, because her hair is quite fine, it gathers up all manner of flotsam. Now, if I can only keep her looking pretty for a few days.
It looks as though the cool weather is going to continue. Some of our snow has melted but it still looks like winter here in the backwoods.
