It’s wet around here—rain through the night and all day today which means our fall colors are probably finished.
Sunday we went to Big Timber spending a couple hours with Nat who has been a little under the weather. Back home Michael packed and I quilted—I am determined to finish a stack of my own quilt tops before we leave! I finished a small lap sized quilt Sunday afternoon and am stitching the binding in the evenings.
But—time is drawing near and the countdown has started! I packed a few crates today then quilted the rest of the day. Several years ago I pieced eight Christmas placemats and in the cabinet they resided until today. I put all eight placemats on the frame at once and straight line quilted them—looks great! Binding is in the dryer—I will probably take a bunch of these tops and the bindings with me and stitch my way to Arizona. Another quilt top went on the frame late this afternoon—a star wall hanging I made at a long ago quilt retreat. I’ve quilted two of these same wall hangings for other quilters and now it’s time to quilt mine.
So, a few more sleeps and we are heading south—we are both ready.
