Phew! The guests are gone, and the house is quiet. I'm sad, but life goes on!
I took the little guy for his last walk in the forest, and he gave me his EVIL eye when I tried to take his picture!

Speaking of Murphy, there she is in that tiny bed again, this time with her head sticking out. Why she finds this comfortable, I have no idea! But I get a kick out of her.
OK -- so two or three nights in a row, I've had the same dream or the same theme. There's a GIANT white tiger - or primarily white, trying to get at Murphy and Lexi. But although it has a chance to attack them, it doesn't. Hmm -- what is my mind trying to tell me? A larger-than-life Bear?
When M moved out, she took most of her stuff, but there are still two bookcases of books and a closet jammed with stuff. I have asked numerous times that she deal with the closet. Not to give everything away, but to clean out what she doesn't want. At last, my wish came true. Bags of stuff was left in the upstairs hallway, and I brought them down after they left.

Then I need to get the All in a Row quilt off the wall and get this up, and it needs to be done before 12:30 when we have our little One Block Wonder discussion. I sent an invitation to 9 people for our session today, plus myself. A couple audited the class, so they won't have anything to show, but they are welcome to join in the discussion. Can you believe that I already have pictures from FOUR of the group? I know one other person is done - I just haven't gotten her pictures yet. I'm almost done.
Now that's peer pressure to be sure!!!!!
And there's a quilt on the long arm, and I NEED to get it done today.
Here's the next link to QUILTsocial with my very cool projects this month. I had so much fun with these projects. I have a small stack of things that I want to embroider, and I had better get started because everything takes way more time than you think it will. I found a few things in those bags that M took from the closet that will be good projects to embroider!
By the way, there is still a lot of stuff in the closet, but at least we started, and at least most of the stuff that she will never wear or use is gone - I hope!
Don't forget the Facebook live for QUILTsocial is happening TODAY!!!! We had a run-through yesterday just to test the equipment. We are all learning things!
AND if that isn't enough excitement for the day, the new Cherrywood Challenge will be announced this morning at 9:15 AM EST. That's also a Facebook live presentation. They've used green for Wicked, yellow for Lion King, blue for Van Gogh, purple for Prince, landscape colors for Bob Ross, and pink for Princess Diana. I made a blue one (I didn't get accepted), started the purple one but never finished it, and am happy to report that my Bob Ross and Princess Diana pieces are traveling! I'm so excited -- what will it be??
Could it be reds? Oranges? What will the theme be??? So many questions, and we'll soon have the answers!!!
On that note, it's time to get moving.
Have a super day!
