We spent the weekend at the ranch, an outing we delayed for much too long due to a number of circumstances out of our control. The weather was perfect.
As soon as the minimum number of absolutely required housekeeping chores was out of the way, I set up my Featherweight and went to work on Anti-Ouch Pouches. This was the first opportunity I've had to set up a machine at the ranch since the waterline break and rebuild that took up all of 2014.
A friend had ordered an LED light bulb for my machine and I am delighted with it. It is definitely brighter and cooler than the traditional bulbs. I do hope it is as long-lived as the manufacturer claims.
Saturday I drive into Llano town for that quilt club’s very first show. They did a fabulous job and I kept running into friends, many of whom I had not seen in over a year. Each visitor was gifted with a goody bag that contained information about the show and area attractions.
A local quit shop was offering $10 off coupons and I, of course, could not pass up the opportunity to check it out. I left with some fabric for backing and a new pair of machine quilting gloves.
The Bluebonnets are not yet at their peak, but I had to take a picture, anyway, so I opted for a closeup. Maybe in a few weeks the pastures will be dense with flowers and I can get a better picture.
These calves were very interested in what I was doing. Sorry, kids, no treats.
Here are the 11 anti-ouch pouches I finished for the month. Now I am free to play with other projects.
