Random Sunday Thoughts

Good morning, friends! I'm having a quiet sunday morning -- reading the paper, cruising through blogs via Feedly (I love that app), and in a bit will head upstairs to do some sewing.

Yesterday I got a whole quilt top together, put it on the design wall to admire it, and then realized that I'd put a block section in upside down. See those pale pink star points at the top? I had them reversed. Dang. At least I noticed it before I got it sandwiched and/or quilted, though. I ripped the offending section apart and his morning's first task is to get it sewn together correctly. Ahem. In case you're wondering, the pattern is "Down South" and is a fun mix of pinwheels and stars. I'd sewn a lot of component parts at past quilt retreats, and when I stumbled across them recently in my sewing room, determined to get it finished.

And speaking of random quilt components, I had a bag of half square triangles that were cut-offs from another project, so I decided to put them together for a baby quilt.

So that's also on deck for today.

Last night I went to see RBG with some friends. I love Ruth Bader Ginsberg but I came away from the movie loving her more. What an amazing woman, and how much she has accomplished! And I love that she's become a rock-star celebrity in her 80's. The audience cheered at the end.

Yesterday, Miss C and I celebrated the 2nd birthday of our puppy, Starlie. That 2 years went by fast!

She wore a party hat (briefly), willing to please but not liking it. She did like her "spoiled dog birthday cake," though.

 We wondered if she'd tear into it, but she's a very polite girl. She licked at the frosting and the decorative biscuit "sprinkles" before realizing she could actually chomp on it.

Miss C and I watched with great amusement. She only got the first layer (the size of a human piece of cake, I'd say.) The rest went back to the fridge for future treats. When I came back outside, I discovered that she'd turned into Princess Leia. This picture makes me laugh every time I see it.

 Oh! One more random thing. My library has a sort-of-new thing going where have a small "Lucky Day" shelf next to the regular new book shelves. The "Lucky Day" books are current bestsellers or hot interest books, not reservable so you can find them and get them right away if you're lucky.

I found "An American Marriage" by Tayari Jones which I'd just put on my "to read" list a bit ago, so I felt very lucky indeed! I read it quickly -- engrossing, beautifully written, and loved it.

Back to sewing room for me!
