Despite some unexpected issues that needed our immediate attention this weekend (clogged clothes dryer, malfunctioning door knob), I did get a little more work done on the corner units for the Civil War Chronicles quilt.
Two corners are now attached to the center, and two are ready for stitching.
We are very far behind on getting our Christmas decorations up and I intend to spend a good chunk of the day working on those. So I’ll be fortunate if I get even one of the two remaining corners on. I still won’t be finished. Those 68 Hovering Hawks blocks I posted about endlessly a few weeks ago will then need to be attached as the outer border.
The weather system that brought us some much needed rain is expected to move out later today. I will miss it. In the last two weeks, the LCRA gauges closest to our house in town and at the ranch recorded 3.6 and 2.85 inches respectively. Not enough to refill our lakes, but certainly enough to put some much needed moisture in the ground. When we made a run to the ranch yesterday to retrieve some tools, we found more water running in the
than we have seen in many months. We even have puddles in our yard, much to Harley and Chloe’s dismay. Llano River
