Wooly Fruit

Very busy weekend. And when I stop and think about what I got done, it doesn't add up to a whole lot. But everything takes up time.  There's that time thing again.  Seems to go so fast.  On occasion I get a day that seems to last forever, but not many. 

Worked outside and inside this weekend.  Then finally got some time to sit and create a few things for the online retreat.  It was fruits and vegetables.  No veggies to be made, but have been eating a ton lately.  Same with the fruits, and that's what I decided to make.

Pears I would say have to be my favorite fruit.  And the Bosc pear is my favorite. It's the ugliest, but has the most flavor to me. My mom got me hooked on them a very long time ago.   So I decided to make 3 pears. A Bosc, a Red pear and a Barlett.  Then decided to put a couple strawberries with them.  I tried black beads on one, but I think they are too big, so the other one I put some black straight stitches.  Just experimenting.  Cut up some grapevine for the stems.  These pears are only 3" tall without the stem. I thought they were cute and very easy to make.

I'm not going to post my rug yet.  I'll wait till I get more filled in.  I don't want you to get bored of seeing it lol.   I never did get to doing anymore than I did on Thursday night at the hook in. 

My daughter had some papers for me to fill out for Band camp in August with the High School.  It really hit me as I was filling out the forms.  This is the LAST one I will  ever do!! I already did the sports one for next year.  She's a Senior in the Fall.  Come September, I will be filling out the last Emergency card for school. Wow!! I was laughing as I was doing it and George was in the other room.  He said "aint it great"???  Yep!!  Now it's his turn to fill out all the College papers after she graduates lol.  He went through it with Craig, so I'll just let him have this job too.  I was always amazed on the first day of school, how I had homework and the kids didn't.  Sooo many papers to fill out !  Will just need to find someone to do her graduation pictures soon. Looking into that.

Well, off to finish up my weekend by cooking some chicken for lunches tomorrow for work.  Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead~~

Great fruits, Kathy! Looks great in that bowl with your quilt! When I was in school, I hated it... but, I sometimes wish I could do it again... looking back, school was so much easier than "real life"! LOL! :-)
