Weekend Stitching: Just Two Pieces

Even with Friday off the weekend just isn't long enough.  Yesterday was relaxing as most of the day was spent stitching.  It rained in the morning and looked like we'd get more all afternoon.  So a perfect day in the sewing room. The only downer was the discovery that My Guy didn't drive all the squirrels out of the attic before he re-screened all the vents.  We didn't find that out till Sunday morning when the straggler made quite a racket in the ceiling during breakfast.  So it was off to Tractor Supply for a trap.  He's a smart little thing, he's not taken the bait yet.  Though he's been up there since Friday morning with no food or water, not sure how much longer he can survive.  Our biggest concern is the electrical wiring, they'd already nibbled a good length of it over our entry way.  But we can't get that fixed till we get the last one out.

On the sewing front, Allietare has been sewn into two halves. 

 Allietare,  Bonnie Hunter's 2015 Mystery Quilt

 It should be a whole top by the end of next weekend.  Not sure I'll get the borders on it though.  Drama Teen and I have shopping plans next weekend.  She has a writing camp, a journalism workshop and a journalism conference to attend in June.  She'll need professional looking attire for the conference, plus she'll probably need shorts and such as well.  So we are making plans for a fun girls day in the city.
