Round Robin, In-Laws and Flooding

This is the next top I worked on in the round robin that Fiber Art Friends are doing . Lynn E. made this cat one. Marilyn added the 3-D eyelids complete with eyelashes. When I got it, I was going to have the cat thinking about a mouse or fish. My daughter suggested a bird and I thought that was a good idea since I could add feathers floating around. The bird turned out a little more folk art in style than I wanted but I ran out of time and had to exchange it for the next top. I missed the last meeting so didn't get to see all the tops when they were exchanged. Can't wait to see them at the meeting this Friday. I have to get moving on the next top. Haven't had much time to do anything.

Last week, my sister-in-law, Wenda, was out for a couple of days from NY. She was vending in a quilt show in southern NH and came up here for 2 days before she had to do a class at a shop in Nashua, NH. We went to Keepsake Quilting. I still don't like the new shop as much as I did the old one. Not sure why. I think one of the reasons is that I don't find the staff very friendly.
My Mother and father-in-law came out from Ohio for my husbands graduation from grad school on Saturday. He now has a masters in elementary education. I thought he would never finish!! I hope he can find a teaching job!
They are supossed to leave tomorrow and go down to Glouster, MA to see their grandson, Matt (Wenda's son). I don't know if they will make it with all the flooding that is happening along the Mass, NH and Maine coasts. It is flooding around us in the center of NH. At least we won't have to worry about our well right now!!
