first saw this done at a show in new hampshire and bought the pattern. i loved it then and love it still. next comes a narrow blue border, then wide muslin border with more appliques. the fun is definitely in the process. *** and did manage one more tree block, a pear tree of course!
and remember my post about this? my ikea bag and kitchen timer? well, surprise surprise, they have
mystically re-appeared. this has been going on since i moved in here. somebody with a twisted sense of humor is playing cat and mouse, the invisible invader who comes into my apartment and takes inconsequential things and then returns them...things like stamps, like freezer container lids, like CDs, stuff out of my cupboard, polident tablets, a mitten, others i can't recall now and then the ikea bag and timer. wonder if it's the same vile violator who followed me around massachusetts and stole 3 purses, tampered with my old cars, stole mortgage checks off my mailbox, a gold sand dollar necklace from a safety deposit box (plus the keys), utility and other bills from my mailbox, an amy grant CD out of my glove compartment...to name a few. those items never found their way back--one was an especially nice leather purse from the thrift--but here at violator village they usually do. maybe the perp thinks that redeems them....guess again. it is never ok to violate my apartment and car whether or not things are taken and later returned. i don't do it to anyone here and it shouldn't be done to me. unfortunately that is life with infantile people of nearly zero integrity, not everyone here, but one is too many. it just isn't right at all.
