I think this has been the most amazing summer we have had in forever. There were a few days of rain and that was it. Endless days of sunshine and blue skies. I got in a round of golf, the first time I've done this in years, and I have to admit, I really missed it. I But I'm ready for some rain. I want to quilt "guilt-free" and I need some rainy days for that. The yard keeps beckoning me but I'm done, done, done with it!
My summer quilting has been dismal. I spent some time this past weekend getting the final borders on this appliqued piece that I got done in May/June. Only 2 months to get the border on, geesh!
I've kept my hands busy with the hand quilting on this piece. Once the binding has been finished, this will hit the wash to get out the markings, and I will be shipping it out to someone.
BTCT update: N-O-T-H-I-N-G
It will be tops on my list for Sept to December.
Quite some time back I mentioned that I wanted to get an old cross stitch piece finished. However, these 50 something year old eyes can't see to stitch on 32 ct linen. I borrowed a magnifying glass, but it wouldn't stay on my frame so I broke down and bought one with a clamp. OMG, I can see. My commitment is going to be one night a week on this and in time it will be finished. It really is beautiful.
So I say, Good Bye summer, you've been great, but I'm really ready for the fall, the turning leaves, a few rainy days, and some crisp cool afternoons. Bring it on!
