Friday Finish!


This hasn't been a great week for doing things, the kids were sick again and I think I have the same thing, since I was feeling better and it came back, so back on meds for me. The good thing is I spend more time working on projects and making progress on my second wheelchair quilt, so once that is done, I can put both together.

I decided to take a break and work up a quick project. This is a design by Susan who offers the free pattern on her site, Downeast Thunder Farm. I used wool from a thrifted jacket, which is thick and fluffy, so perfect for a black bat. I messed up the face on the first one and the second came out a bit better.  I used rusty wire for the feet and have them hanging on my shelve. I took the photo on the rack so you could see them better.

We were able to get to the beach few days.  I was able to get some paddling in, one day, but too cold to swim.


I found a few nice pieces of glass, the darker one in the middle is red glass. I hope you all have a nice weekend.

love the bats! Sorry your little ones got sick. My grandbabies had their very first week of daycare - hoping they get thru the year without getting too sick! Susan does wonderful patterns; I've made several of her birds!
