We’ve had good things going on around here lately, but very little of it has involved quilting. And that’s okay. I have high hopes for getting some serious quilting time in September.
Mid-August we moved our daughter into her first solo apartment. Those of you who have done this understand the amount of work that goes into the packing, loading, driving, unloading, etc. It was a whirlwind weekend. She had been at a conference the week of the move, so she literally flew home on Friday, we loaded her stuff on Friday evening, got up and drove to her new place and moved her in on Saturday, and we drove back home on Sunday.
Once that craziness was done, our family took a few days and unplugged at a cabin up north. We loved every minute. We did alot of this.
Just sitting by the water and listening to the waves lap.
In the evenings, we did this.
While we waited to see this.
During some of the days, we managed to tear ourselves away from the water and did a little of this.
Some of us did this.
In between all of that were endless games of Ticket to Ride, and naps. Lots of naps.
I am still working on Mount Hood. I ended up having to take the inner borders off because they were not the right width for the pieced border. Now that the pieced borders are sewn together, I can determine the width of the inner border and get both borders sewn on. Here’s to hoping my calculations are correct. The downside to this new calculation is that I may not have enough blue material for the final outer border. I am determined to finish this from my stash, so we’ll see what I come up with. I hope to have some pictures of the quilt for you on Friday.
So here’s to a quieter September, fall weather, and time to quilt!
