I pulled out the crumb jar today and just played. It was glorious! As busy as it has been lately, having a bit of mindless sewing was just what I needed. I squared up the bits that were big enough to 6.5 inches, and the ones that weren't are all 4.5 inches or diamonds now. Maybe next year I'll try tumbler blocks?
There were a few more postage stamp stars sitting by the machine, so I worked them in as well.
Kurt made it back safely from India. With very careful planning, he managed not to get sick, but even so, he came home tired and hungry! He said there were cows everywhere, wandering the streets and blocking traffic. It is wonderful to have him back again, not just because he mowed the yard today either. He has another quick trip tomorrow, but hopefully after that he can stay home for a bit.
We've been having marathon sessions of Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit. I had to sneak out to work yesterday morning and Anna sent this photo of everyone in jail. Such a bunch of criminals! It is 9 here and everyone else is already off to sleep. I don't think I'm long behind, but I'll enjoy the rest of Downton Abbey first with a bit on applique to keep my hands busy.
