What Is Kate Doing Today...
Kate spent most of the day putting together one of her Drunkard's Path pre-cut kits. She already had most of the concave/convex units together and is working on the rows. The blocks are 4" square and the kit makes a 48" x 64" project. Two kits make a queen size top.
Here is what else is going on. John is back from Houston. Over the weekend, he used the gasoline post hole digger to make 200 holes so I could plant daffodils. Yes, it is late; the ground was not frozen. But I was frozen after kneeling in the snow for 3 hours.
The very bad thing first - John hit a rock with the digger and it kicked back and cut his thumb and nail - on his right hand, of course. So not a lot of hand quilting right now. And I'm on my own with stuck jar lids for a while.
The good thing is that right as we finished, the real snow started and we are going to have a beautiful view of daffodils next spring. The deer don't eat them.
I'm so tickled to tell you that the Alzheimer's Auction raised over $12,000 for research. Plans are being made for next year, so stay tuned.
