Joyce's Finished Block

I finished and mailed off Joyce's block. I added the wire bird's next and eggs, the lace and beads on the lower left seam, and the birdhouse motif.  I hope she likes it...

Chloe and Ruff

While in Ohio, Chloe found she had a new "cousin", my sister's dog Ruff. Chloe managed to wrangle and keep his chew bone despite her size deficit.

Dad's New Digs

We made it down to Dayton, Ohio this past weekend to see my dad and his new assisted living apartment. I was pleased to see his mood was much better and his weight was up to a whopping 114! He was also very proud to show us his new chair walker.

Later we went back to my sister's house, here is dad intently watching an episode of "Ponderosa"

Joyce's Bird Block

I received Joyce's bird block last week. She had lots of ideas for additions. She mentioned that she enjoyed religious (Christian) references. I could not come up with a bible verse concise enough to add with a bird subject, but I thought of the song "His eye is on the sparrow"... I hope she likes. I also beaded around a hummingbird earring and added that. I am thinking of what to do in the space above the sparrow quote, and in the lower left corner, then off to Joyce.

Block so far...
