Saturday Doin's

I started the day in the sewing room.
I am using my orange basket blocks for my leader/enders.
I have 1 more basket block to sew before I work on something else,
like my Dresden block.

I am having a good time working on the deer quilt.
I have 12 quarter square triangles to square up for the last border row,
then the final border goes on and I can make the back.

I love my 6 1/2" ruler and the Brooklyn Revolver for trimming.
See those shelf liner hunks?
I use washable school glue to glue them onto my ruler to keep it from slipping.
When I' done, they peel right off and a damp cloth cleans the glue off the ruler.

Ernie spent the morning up in the woods with Doug and Jonah cutting firewood.
When he got home, I earned more good wife points by helping unload.
Funny thing about the first load of wood for the year, 
I found all those muscles in my sides and back.

This was a big old log.
Doug counted 117 rings before he lost his place. 
That old log has lots of rotten sections in it. 

I think now I will put on my pjs and work on Mae's sweater for a while.

Some nice little baskets to add to your collection. You've had a busy day, indoors and outdoors using all kinds of muscles, good for you.

Great basket blocks. My husband counts rings for work. Looks like a good growing tree for it's size. We sometimes have disks for our fire place. The old disk rings he has had to count.
