Finally, it’s finished! Several, many, who knows how many years ago my dear sister and niece sent me the pattern and fabric for making this Christmas quilt. I pieced the quilt at one of our quilt retreats and the top went in the “to be finished” pile. In the fall of 2015 I loaded the backing for the quilt and began trying out quilting ideas, time got away from me and the quilt top was back in the “to be finished” pile. A couple weeks ago I vowed to finish this one if I didn’t finish anything else of my own this summer. It’s done and it’s gorgeous!
I’ve finished two quilt tops for customers taking advantage of my “sale,” and delivered one today—she was very pleased. The cowboy and I spent the afternoon in town and we retrieved two more quilt tops for quilting from Jeane. I’m still determined to finish some more of my own projects too!
The forest fire smoke was disgusting today—ugh—we couldn’t even see the mountains. Rain, rain, we need rain!
My dear brother in law, Danny has been pastor of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church for 25 years—this is the church attended by members of my family forever—maybe not forever but for a long, long time! Past and present members of the church held a celebration for Danny and my sister Ann this past Sunday in honor of this 25 years. Danny and Ann—with their daughter Niki and her family.
