I have some Show and Tell. I've been playing the last week and a half with a pile of L-O-V-E (and sometimes I) blocks. Take a look at the little top I made for Lynne of Patchery Menagerie. That started me off and all I wanted to do was keep playing with these blocks.
They actually look really cool - must play with Bars sometime... I didn't want to spend time making a lot more letter blocks, so I just made thirteen unruly 4-Patches:
I'm really excited about one of Anna William's amazing quilts. It's been in my inspiration folder for ages and I finally decided now is the time to play with it, using my LOVE blocks as the centers:
This is as far as I've gotten:
That looks kinda cool too. Maybe sometime I'll come back to this idea.
I have been struggling to stay focused lately. I made some more cat blocks and just couldn't keep going with it. I WILL do a tutorial, just not as soon as I thought. Need to be a bit more energetic first.
I've been battling my knee, the one I've had problems with for ages. I've been putting off going to the orthopedist but it's finally at the point where I just have to make the appointment.
I have been working on something else: copyediting the Letters book. I have three stacks: one pile of papers with just the words and one with my illustrations (with modifications), and a bunch o' photos. Still doesn't look like a book yet, but definitely progressing.
This tiny creature has been doing well:
It was a year ago that Pokey first became ill with what we later learned was a symptom caused by Chronic Renal Failure (CRF). I did so much crying last April - I was completely convinced we were going to lose her. Instead she's doing really well. She still has CRF - she'll never be healthy - but she's doing great under the circumstances. She's put on some weight and has been lively and happy. For a while there she was groggy and miserable when I brought her back from the vet's with her 6-days worth of subcutaneous fluids, but no longer.
I don't know if it's been the surprisingly cooler than expected temperatures, but Pokey has been in cuddle mode sleeping on me and wanting her belly rubbed. Ah, that's wonderful. Wonderful for me, not so wonderful for getting things done. Everything else can wait.
