What Is Kate Doing Today...

Didn't your mother tell you not to put pins in your mouth?
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.
