My Wednesday

Well, Marv's been gone for three days now and the house is still in one piece and my Dad and I haven't starved to death yet. He called this evening from Michael's ice cream parlor in Madison, WI, with a waffle cone in his hand (and mouth!). What a brat! Wish he could bring some home. He said he had decided to go on to Gretchen's yet this evening. It's three hours to her house from Madison so he should be there by 11 her time-9 our time.

My Dad and I went to Annie's this morning where Annie and I worked on our Maple Leaves quilt tops. I think I've decided that my cheese cloth idea is not going to work so I'm going to make some paper fabric with muslin, tissue paper, paint and sparkly thread to use for my leaves. We're supposed to have them done by July 13 when Lynn is coming up to trade pieces. We're hoping maybe she can come up on the 15th instead and join us at TroubleMakers.

Here's a picture of a corner of Lynn's leaves:

Coming home today there were two deer in the driveway. They ran down the drive and around a curve and disappeared. We've been having a raccoon visiting the boy cats outside. Luckily the cats seem to ignore him, but he eats all of their food. The raccoons are really cute, but so annoying! I keep chasing him off, but he's not real afraid of me.

It's almost time for bed. I'm hoping Marv will call when he arrives at Gretchen's. Hope he has a good time with Gwynyn and Owen.
