I'm still picking up debris around the yard from last weeks storms. The walking path I use is so littered with branches, I'm sure I look like the Prancercize Lady from a distance.
But that's not what happened to Mr. Moosebay.
|Mr. Moosebay and his shiny blue truck had a run-in with a tree last week too.|
There were so many storms and downed trees--in fact my brother's truck and his girlfriend's car were both totaled by a Maple tree on Friday--sad because I remember my Dad planting that tree.
His truck is equipped with a back-up alarm AND a rear view camera.
Unfortunately, neither of those is useful when you leave the tailgate down.
|Luckily the tree survived the encounter with the truck.|
|The new tailgate has been ordered and will be installed later this week.|
I could buy a nice little sewing machine with the amount of money the are charging at the dealership!
Because of the rain, I was able to get a bit of work time in at the sewing machine and finished my Vintage Schnibbles:
The larger pinwheels require two matching charm squares and I just happened to have three packs of matching American Jane. I removed the red and yellow charms (for another project) and I really like the way the green, melon and blue work together. This will be a fun table topper for the porch.
|I wimped out on the pieced border and used up some blue fat quarter scraps.|
