A REST day!!! Could yesterday qualify as a rest day? I did take a couple of breaks - sat outside in the gazebo, had a scheduled Zoom call with friends. But that doesn't qualify as a rest day. I had a LOT of sewing to get done, and it's done, but I can't share with you - not yet. You'll see it next week, and I'm so excited, I could burst!
I also finished quilting the Trend-tex challenge, which took way longer than I thought, but I'm happy with the results. It's trimmed and ready to put the binding on later today. In an ideal world, it would be in the mail tomorrow, so I'm aiming for that.
Half of the homework for tonight's class is done. Well, it's more than half done, so I should be able to finish quickly this morning. Still a bit of prep work for tomorrow, but I'll make it.
I'm way behind on the writing, and I'm going to try and take care of some of that this morning!
Digital magazines are getting read and returned. I tried to take a screenshot or two, but I couldn't figure that out on my iPad. Let's say that I took the screenshots; now I have to find out where they are stored. I'll have to try my tablet and see if that works.
As usual, it's going to be a busy day - quilts to quilt, sewing, writing, and well - lots of fun stuff. It's going to be wet and cool today, so NO incentive to sit outside.
Speaking of outside, I saw this in the little garden beside the house. The tulips are growing like mad. Oh, where are the rabbits to eat those lush green leaves?

With all the squirrels and skunks in the neighborhood, I'm surprised there are even bulbs still in that flower bed. Do skunks eat tulips? I guess they dig for grubs or whatever. But let's say that someone loves to play in those flower beds, and I often find little holes everywhere. In this area and the front garden - thankfully, there is no grass.
Several of the leaves just grew right through the dead leaves! The dead leaves are gone.
