Today started off well. The first thing I decided to work on was a set of four crow blocks requested by one of my April Stash Bees. They were fairly simple to do except I had trouble with the beaks. The first one was too small:
The second was too big! And looked kinda grumpy . . .
But the third one was juuuust right. :)
And here's the fourth . . .
Then I was almost done with the second bee block and this happened:
My needle came out right in the middle of sewing! It was jammed down there so hard it took some major prying to get that thing out. And it was bent up pretty good. I had a bad feeling about this. I put in a new one and started sewing again and this is what I got:
I tried everything I know to fix this and nothing worked. Now, it isn't even doing THIS much. The thread on top is not catching the thread on the bottom. I think something underneath has been bent or damaged. I am not a happy camper.
Since I'm shut down on the sewing front, I'll share a fun picture I took today. We adopted a kitten in the dead of winter and since it was so cold, he stayed inside the first four months of his life with us. He's not been outside much and is very hesitant to go outside at all. Naturally, he's curious about it, but it's a big scary world out there! And is that snow you see on the mountains? YES! It snowed today! I thought we were done with that kind of weather! Since we don't have landscaping yet, I'm ok with him staying inside and not tracking in mud. :)
Last, but not least, another small update on the building project . The last pictures I showed you looked like this:
Now the backfilling has been done and all the foundation walls have nice neat flat and level ground all around like this!
That's the latest! Hope you have a great Easter weekend!
