Last Saturday, Mommy started to feel ill, with a cold, but it turned out to be Covid! Poor Mommy – she got really miserable feeling, and so not much happened here at our house this week. Mercedes did get an autumn yellow dress (which Evie says reminds her of the colour of the maple leaves on some of the trees outside right now), but after that, Mommy said she was too sick to knit anything else this week.
We figured this was a good time then to show an update of the shared quilt cloth Mommy and Auntie S. are working on together. Auntie sent it back to us this time with the two hot air balloons, so of course, Mommy immediately had to put people in the baskets!
Can you see the little kid in this basket?
The man in this basket has lost his hat!
We have some mountains in the background now, too.
They are hard to see, but there is an octopus, a turtle and a mermaid in the water.
There is a new flower garden beside the bench where Mommy and Auntie S. are sitting with the kitty.
Yesterday, Mommy was feeling a little better, so she started to design a rug for Michael’s room. He wants one that matches his cars and trucks quilt. He was disappointed Mommy didn’t feel well enough to start the cross stitching, but we just reminded him of the old saying: “Patience is a virtue.” Unfortunately, we then had to explain to him what a virtue was…
