WIP Wednesday 9.9.15

Still working on getting back into the groove... School is in full force now.  Let's get ready to longarm -- and finish!  Here's what happened this week:

I finished this table runner for a friend.  The blocks are Tall Fly blocks won from the February, 2013, Block Lotto.

I finished another tumbler rug.  This is part of Bonnie Hunter's Tumbler Challenge project.  I love my little border on this one!

I finished the August indigo blocks for the RSC15 Sampler.  Love these blocks!

I completed the August assignment for the Pat Sloan Vacation Time 2015 Mystery Quilt.  Here they are strung across my desk:

I did a lot of weeding.  My chickens seemed to appreciate it and hopped on this old stump for a fun photo.

 I made this little chicken coop out of scrap items (wood) that I got for free on Craigslist.  I also did a lot of weeding to get the area clear around it.  I told my husband that I could make a coop for almost free.  Working with wood was a little similar to quilting.  I had to measure and measure again, than cut and put it back together.  I have a few more woodworking projects in my mind.  I just need time.

Here's the little stand with perches on it for the hens that I bred and raised myself.  There's also a drawer (community) nesting box behind the privacy curtains where they can lay eggs in peace.  It is made of vintage billboards (as is a lot of the coop).
