An 8 block day......

Yesterday was a busy day.  I mowed my grass in the morning.  The 10 year old girl and her friend came by to say they had to do chores in the morning so we decided on 3 p.m. for them to help me.  Between the 2 of them they vacuumed the van, cleaned up the branches from 4 bushes that I trimmed, and the whole time were telling me all of the other things they could do for me.  They have more energy than I have so I told them we would have to save the next project for this afternoon.  I mowed the back yard in the late afternoon.  Then I got my reward for the day, making 8 more blocks, the 4 shown and their duplicates.
This dishcloth is a patchwork of colors, 4 different yarns.  They were all ends of balls of yarn that I wanted to use up.  I like it!

Kids that age can do a lot, but sometimes not as good as we would like. But it is good they learn the value of a dollar though. Have fun with them. Chris

Wished those girls lived in my neighborhood!

I love using up yarn ends in something simple like that.

glad to hear the girl was not lazy - sometimes they start good and then whine! Looks like good workers.

Maybe you can hire them to cut fabric and iron for you!

Nice to hear that the young ladies were energetic and thinking up things they could do for you. I was in high school education for almost 20 years and I was encouraged that many kids still have that work ethic. Nice blocks!

What fun for you to have the girls there to help and chatter . . .

Don't you wish you had half of that energy????? So glad that you got some time for sewing more beautiful blocks.

I like todays post ... your dish cloth is a nice companion with your blocks... I see the same colors in both. (*._,*)
I like it too.

I like that dishcloth too!
For years, I've told my hubby I need a houseboy... nada. Maybe I'd get results if I asked for a couple of 10 year-old girls! (grin)
