/enders for the feathered star. so i got both done in nearly the same time with almost no thread waste. i do use a lot of thread but the amount that goes into the trash is almost nil, thanks to this method of chain sewing. **** i am so enjoying this "just takes 2" project as it is a bit of a challenge with all the different blocks and construction methods. not puzzling to the point of frustration but interesting. i have no idea what i am going to do with a 90" square quilt top or even a finished quilt that size, though.

ran to the PO first thing to pick up this giftie from megan in michigan who has actually been to maine! such heartful gifts including a finger pincushion, a birdie pincushion that will sit on top the old viking quite nicely, a nail kit and this handmade basket. thank you, megan, for such wonderful gifts. you should be here now as there is a bit of a glut of lobster around; shedders (soft shell) are in abundance due to early moulting and they can't be shipped, so there are lobster signs everywhere and prices are quite reasonable. i know where part of my paycheck is going this week.....mmmmm!

michele over at quilting gallery has posted info about this challenge and i believe i shall rise to the occasion! in addition to finished scrappy quilts, i have basted ones and scrappies in progress also. probably won't win, but it'll be fun to see them in a group as well as see what others make. i almost never make matchy/matchy type quilts, buying yards of a certain fabric, though sometimes they are controlled scrappy. *** monday again and a few housekeeping things to start the week. other than that, will continue on with my quilty projects. **** it's finally summer in maine and this is the season people think of when they say to me, "oh, i love maine." they hardly ever think of february in maine fondly but then, even we who live here don't either.

can you tell i was miffed and tired? no doubt. i am guessing my message hit home because last night he parked someplace else and it was serenely quiet all night. in a bit of fairness here, i am a light sleeper during the early morning hours. my mother tells me when i was a baby, all she would have to do is walk across the floor near the crib and i would be sitting up with eyes wide open ready for the day. so maybe i wouldn't slash his tires and break his windows, but the superglue on the windshield is a tantalizing vision. thankfully i am a person who acts out with only words nearly all the time. and i am not down on apartments per se; i've lived in some inner city housing that was never this noisy or intrusive...go figure!
