Sunday Ramblings

 Just another week getting things either started or completed. 

I was asked why we will catch and release the bunny, fact is they seem to enjoy eating things in the garden, and the bigger they get the more they manage to eat. So just like the one last year, once it gets to the size where he/she is able to survive in the wild we will move him/her out of the city. 

Now on to my goals for the month of July.

1.  Finish quilt top.  Done
2.  Make those cards I planned on doing last month. Not even thought about

3.  Work on the cross stitch.  Done but lots more to go.

4.  Get that rag/t-shirt rug started at least.  Started

5.  Knit 2 more Secret Santa Scarves if not more.  Actually knit three scarves and started a fourth.

6.  If I finish all those start to sandwich the two quilt tops I will have to move onto the next steps. Not done.

Some of these were not completed as I did some little projects instead.

I made new cushion covers for three of the pillows in the living room. I also cut up the jeans that our oldest Kurt brought home. So a bit of a carry over will happen again this month.

On to Augusts monthly goals.

1.  Work on cross stitch.

2.  Make those darn cards I keep putting off.

3.  Work on t-shirt rug.

4.  Sandwich and quilt one top (perhaps even get some binding on it as well).

5.  Cut the denim from those jeans that Kurt brought home into 4" squares.

6.  Knit two scarves. 

7.  Work on processing the garden produce.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 
God bless.


  1. You seem to pack an amazing amount into each month!

  2. You are one busy and productive woman!

  3. I am so impressed with your productivity. I have a tendency to start things and then stop midway through so it takes me forever to get them finished. Especially with projects that are more complicated.

    I love the idea of the t-shirt rug. What a great way to use up scraps.

  4. Looks like a good list for August. Glad you were able to get several of your July goals done too.

  5. You are so good at accomplishing your goals! I always make lists but I usually don't get everything done. I get distracted by other things too easily. Enjoy your August Jackie!

  6. Imagine yourself... dropped in the middle of nowhere. No familiar home, no familiar surroundings, no litter mates or family around. Never ever relocate wildlife, especially younger ones. My heart is breaking for your little bunny. The outside is hers.... if you don't want her eating what's out there, you should put up fencing so she can't get at it. The burden is on you to protect your veggies... not on her, to avoid eating anything outside that she can reach. ~Andrea

    1. This is why she or he will be staying here until he/she is bigger and able to look after themselves. Right now I figure bunny ran in here to hide as coyotes have started to roam our city streets. Probably in the late fall she or he will be large enough to move, if not we will keep her or him over winter and probably feed we have done that as well with other bunnies that stayed the winter with us.

      There are no litter mates here just the one little lost bunny (I really do think her/his family was eaten by the coyotes and this one squeezed under our fence in the nick of time).
