Sunday’s Creative Endeavor

There just was nothing going on today.  I started poking though my fabric scraps and this is what I came up with.

fish quilt 001

It’s a fish, if you can’t see it.  Here it is draped over a pillow, but I think that I will put it on a stretcher and use it for a wall hanging.

I could have done some garden weeding, but it was kind of hot today and it is supposed to be in the 90’s tomorrow.  It has been a hot summer by Vermont standards.  Still, I haven’t had my bathing suit on since last winter.  Life has gotten a bit topsy-turvey.

I also finished Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson.  If you enjoy laughing at serious panic attacks, social anxiety, and marital arguments, this is a really funny book.  Be warned that I  really do have quite a sick sense of humor.


  1. I have to confess, I started reading "The Dovekeepers" but found it too depressing and difficult. Maybe I should go back to it.

    Love the fish!

  2. Jenny Lawson has a great blog but I haven't read the book yet. I have to find more time to read!

  3. Sounds like a fun book. I like funny.

  4. Right now I could use funny in any form. lol
    So I will have to see about downloading it to my Nook
    Thanks for sharing this info with us.
    I think you like your fish in a wall hanging. Go for it.
    Would love to visit Vermont. I was hoping if we go to Portland in Sept that I might could see a little of Vermont. Will have to check out a US map and see what are the chances.
    It is way to hot to do much. I finally quit my out side chores at 1:30 today and will go back out around 6 this evening. Too hot mid afternoon
    Take care dear friend

  5. Life has indeed gone topsy-turvy. And hot. I'm not liking this summer at all.

    But I *do* like your fish. Cute. Smart to stay indoors!

    I actually met Jenny Lawson at Blogher last year. The gal I went with (one of my former associates at the paper) is a HUGE Bloggess fan so we spent time TWICE hanging out in her little den in at the conference. Of course, my friend chit-chatted with Jenny and I just felt out of place. I did get a sticker from her and took pics of my friend with her. :o) She is indeed a funny lady, though.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
