Due to a change in my babysitting schedule for Baby E, I ended up with two bonus sewing days this week! I'm spending it working on a project that I can't share with you until the last week of March, because it is a secret 'til then. Don't mean to be a tease...Oh yes I do!
This quilt I am working on has 384 half square triangles, all of which require trimming. I like making my half square triangles a bit big and then trimming them down to size to get perfect accuracy. (Is that redundant? I think so). I am down to making my last dozen quilt blocks (out of a total of 48), and am feeling pretty happy to see the end of these half square triangles in sight!
We've had a lousy week here this week with lots of rain and grey skies. We need the rain, so that's ok, but my goodness, is Ozzie ever getting on my last nerve. Due to the inclement weather, he has not been getting the walks he needs every day. To punish me, he thinks up pranks to get my attention like you would not believe.
This is my asthma inhaler, which has been by side constantly of late. Except for that time I left it on my desk while I went into another room to do something. See those little tooth punctures? Yup, Ozzie thought he would like to try out my meds. (No, he was not successful).
Yes, he is thinking of jumping up on the counter. He knows I am standing right behind him, so he is restraining himself. I have a feeling that when I leave the house, he is into everything he can think of to get into. He does have something of a conscience, and only does his naughty tricks when he thinks I won't catch him.
One night this week, around 3:30 AM, I heard a rythmic noise coming from the family room. Was it knocking? tapping? Nope, it was Ozzie. Digging. He had gotten up onto the counter and filched a ripe tomato. He was on the white couch, holding the tomato carefully in his mouth, attempting to bury it in the cushions of the couch. My white couch. A ripe tomato. At 3:30 AM.
I got the tomato away from him, and there was no damage to the couch, so I have decided to let him live.
Ozzie, hoping the rain will end soon.
