On the topic of things that happen quickly - my Spanish book arrived in the mailbox on Saturday (well ahead of the projected Tuesday delivery date) I'm glad I have some extra time to get homework done before the next class.
Before that I was practicing the alphabet - over and over and over again. To the point I thought Larkin might well recite along with me. I also have my first two flash cards.
The first an exclamation the instructor suggested we try to work into a conversation. The second a very useful phrase offered to me by Dixie, that I have been practicing and plan to pull out of my hat when things get too much in class.
On the quilting front, I put my envelope blocks together. Now working on the pieces for the border.
In the lower right corner of the photo, you can see just a smidge of the heart quilt. The top is complete, back pieced, and layered and basted. I'm working on the quilting - some simple, straight lines. Looks like it won't be ready for Hubby to deliver at his follow up appointment tomorrow. It wasn't a hard deadline, just a goal so I am not fretting.
In the garden, the volunteer lettuce continues to produce. Larkin follows me out for each harvest. I need to figure out a way that I can press her into service in the garden. Wouldn't it be great if I could teach her how to weed? That would most likely lead to unauthorized digging, so maybe not. Instead she can keep the birds away from newly planted seed so that it can grow. I'll keep my paws crossed that it works.
