|Such perfect points on this compass quilt!|
|The wings on these hummers are so beautifully pieced!|
Out of all of them, this one was my favorite, the one I voted for as crowd favorite. Wonder if it won?
And two adorable and simple flannel baby quilts. Perfect JRT size. Here is one in use.
Last week also saw the Firewise program make it to our house after being on the list for at least 2 years.
Our volunteer fire department has gotten the community together for a number of years in this program and ODF uses it to call their crews back and get them on the payroll while doing some amazing clearing and brush work for fire season preparedness. The window is short though, once they call fire season this work stops until next year
We have a beautiful defensible 100 feet around our house and our driveway has been limbed up. A crew of about 8 spent basically 10 hours with saws and a chipper.
Did That Just Happen?
I don't know about you, but this latest news cycle that started with the FBI director being fired while involved with an active WH investigation and has now gone moved onto serious intelligence leaks done by our bragging idiot of a POTUS has exhausted me. There is no rest though if you are poor or needy.
The GOP is an their own assault mission. Texas is out to get you if you are part of the LGBT community. And Obamacare is being slowly and effectively eroded while we are looking elsewhere at this freaking slow motion multiple pronged crisis in our country. This president must go and he should take most of the GOP with him. Such hate for people who are not wealthy or white.
But there is a little levity to share. Sean Spicer can come to hide out in a shrub near you!
Parting shot: The best seat in the house.
