I've been playing with my patriotic fabrics. I made some more teacups, but have already decided I really dislike the white teacup on the far left. It's an orphan now. I wanted to experiment making a teapot, but wasn't sure I wanted it in this quilt, so I made it in non-patriotic fabric that way will work in a blue and white tea quilt, if I choose to do that.
Doubtful that America flag block at the bottom is going to stay, but I do kind of like how it looks.
I had the last quilting bee of the summer at my house yesterday. I was impressed with how sociable Pokey was. She not only came out of hiding fairly early on and travelled around sniffing at everyone, but she actually sat leaning against one woman and then later curled up on someone else's lap. Pokey of course got the oohs and ahs about how cute she is with the blue eyes and little spot on her nose. My friend L hates the way everyone (but her) fawns over Pokey, but darnit she deserves it, she's so darn cute.
I've been playing with a Sharpie pen, and now I'm getting sick from the fumes. I should have switched over to crayons to color the picture in I was working on. You'll see some of that work here soon.
Howler is doing well. No more freakouts and he's letting us sleep through the night. A very good sign.
I watched the remake of the tv series The Night Stalker. I love the original but this irked the heck out of me. Don't call it the same name and have characters with the same names, when everything else about it has changed. Changed for the worse. It was actually The X-Files set at a newspaper, not my beloved Night Stalker. I'm gonna forget this one exists now.
I've also been rewatching The Gilmore Girls starting at the very beginning. The first time through I just devoured them so quickly, this time I'm getting more out of it.
