Finished my  Lotto blocks and got them trimmed.  I trimmed them to 9 3/4" because I have learned from experience that nor everyone has the same 9 1/2 " measure.  This way whoever wins them can trim them down to size.  

Went to the quilt group at church today.  I need to make some kits for some of them to put together before we meet again on the 28th.  Have 2 quilts to quilt.  No problem staying busy here.

David's first day of retirement in a "work week" was great yesterday.

David should be good at retirement because he has hobbies and things he enjoys doing.   I'm hoping Bob will get more involved with his telescope now that we have the observatory up and he will be able to keep it set the way it needs to be and not have to restart every time.

I do hope Bob can keep his wits about him until he gets the observatory as he wants it.  And then he can enjoy using it!  Out of your hair!

As much space as I have I could easily double it.  Seems I manage to use as much space as I have.

That's so true, I'm overflowing into another room.  My space is small, I need it about 3 times bigger.  Ha Ha!

It's coming together slowly.   We need some clear night skies to set it on Polaris.  Then the computer will take over and actually move the telescope to where he indicates he wants it.  It will be great for it not to have to be set up every time he wants to use it.  He has a sun filter so can even view the sun during the day safely.

Wow!  That sounds amazing.  Bob will have many hours of fun with that I'm sure.  Can't wait to see pics!

wow...I would love to see that setup!!

I've been working on minis to decorate my sewing room wall. Annoyingly, I tried to do the binding where you sew in the front, then sew through the front to the back. I did 2", and it wasn't quite big enough to grab in some parts. I'm sure that's a seam allowance thing, though I couldn't see it. I'll still have to hand bind in some spots. Otherwise, having fun with it!
