Yeah it is Friday!

I got a few more strips sew together last evening. I am hoping that I can get to the point where I can start making a few blocks. Here is my pile of sewn strips

And here is the pile of the ones paired up that are left to sew together. I still have some strips hanging on the design wall that needs a solid fabric cut to pair up with them.

I spent some time last evening fixing up my fence for my squash to keep the deer from eating the leaves. The had been at them again. I also made the enclosure bigger so the plants would have a bit more room to expand and wander. I am finding that the butternut squash wander more than the zucchini and yellow squash.

I had to cut the fence in order to get some of the butternut squash stems back inside the fence. The deer have been chomping on it pretty good. I didn't want to have to redo the lower part of the fence so some of the stem and leaves are still hanging out. It is better than it was.

The deer ate the one little 1" butternut squash, but I did see a couple more forming. This one is about 3/4 of an inch. I will have to wait and see if it gets big enough to eat before the cold weather sets in. It is tiny right now! I have learned a lot this year so next year I will try and do a better job. I did see several bees last night as I was working on the fence going from blossom to blossom. Maybe I will still get some zucchini yet this season!

Your questions from yesterday about the hospital equipment. The company I work for is not installing the equipment. That is outside our contract and the hospital purchased that equipment. The space my company remodeled was designed to hold the equipment and all the plumbing, steam pipes, electric and ductwork was done by my company's subs. There is a dirty side and a clean side to this space. All the equipment is on the dirty side and the clean side will store the medical devices so they are ready for surgery and procedures.

Have a great weekend! With the cooler weather I hope to get the weeds pulled out of the flower beds and maybe get the garage cleaned out a bit.

How fun to measure your progress by height of your seams. Some people measure yardage in and out. I just look at the remaining volume in my stash and sigh.
Good luck with your garden.
