Today - a much more restful day. It got to 107 though! Can you imagine? I mean we live in Colorado!!!
I learned something new today. I wanted to make dresden plate flower for the Row Robin, but I have never made one... check these out.
I made all the little petals, and laid them out. It looked really weird, and that the center was going to be way huge. I persevered and kept sewing, until.....
I got this!!! I think it is about 8 1/2 inches ( Diameter right??)
I think I am going to make one more, and then figure out how to make them look like flowers on my row.
We can still see the smoke from the fire. It has grown another 10,000 acres - up to 71,000 acres now. They are pre -evacuating some areas where my parents friends live. Not good.
My dad is the fire chief at Livermore, so he was out all day helping coordinate the tanker trucks and other fire related things ( okay I admit I can't remember all the words he used) But it is A LOT of work!!
