That is a very cute pumpkin
That is one glorious pumpkin. Looks like it will be a perfect door hanger for your sewing area serving as an announcement that a whiz of a stitcher works here.
Hope your hubby is better and you can cross taxi driver off your duties. My DFIL always used to say getting old is not for whimps and each passing day I realize how right he was.
The fancy border does look really cool. I bet you could just do 25 swags a day and get it done in under a month.
I love the look of that. It's going to be gorgeous! Where is your road trip this time? I'm sure you will make lots of progress on these blocks during your travels.
Yours is lovely. I would have difficulty doing it with my arthritic fumble fingers. Even binding is getting more difficult.
Will this finish up your outbuildings too? You have been working hard. Glad you have finally decided what direction to go in with the house.
Sorry to hear about your DH's fall. Sounds like the trip to the ER found other issues previously unidentified. I have had doctors for patients. The sedated ones were the easiest to manage. Really as long as I took into consideration their knowledge was greater than mine about medicine, not nursing, and that they don't like to lose control(who does?), I had no problems. As a nurse, I'm a piece of cake to take care of. I know what nurses do and have to put up with. I'm glad he is ok now and you can go back to doing what you like.
I'm interested to see how your improv piece turns out. I like scrappy. Somewhere I have 36 crumb blocks waiting to be assembled. I need to pull them out and get that finished.
I like either the beads or the swag. Both seems too much. Both look time consuming at this point since you want to finish. You have put so much work into this project, it's worth the time to do it the way you really want it.
That's a perfect pumpkin!
I have the house empty except for some cushions to sleep on and a few items I need in the morning. Everything else is in a small area in the garage that I just need to figure out how to fit on truck. I just need to sweep and vacuum house. The rental company will do a deep clean. Our sheds are packed to the brim with stuff that will stay here. After this we need one more trip for a handful of stuff that is bulky and will not fit in truck. Will come later this summer for those and use DBIL utility trailer. Also haul stuff in the yard to the dump. DH left at 3:30 this morning pulling our small old RV and will work today.....he should be there now. I will leave in the morning when I get up.....tempting to push hard and leave today but think it better to just sleep here on the floor one more night and leave when I wake up in the morning. I will be driving a 16 foot Penski truck and will take my time.
