The top is done! I love making progress again. Blocks are 8 inches finished and I set this one 6 x 8 for a quilt that finishes at 48 x 64 inches. I mentioned when I started this that I’ve got this block in one of my books at home but I found a free version online at this link.
After I finished the top, Finn and I took a little walk down the street. I love that this house is on a dead end with just a few houses around it. It’s also very close to the amenities here in Big Canoe and to both gates. I know that many of you don’t like gated communities but we love the access to the amenities and the beauty of Big Canoe so it suits us. If you walk down the street you can even see the lake that I kayak in. Keith says it’s a shame there’s not a neighborhood access to the lake but it’s really not difficult to drive to the marina (maybe we’ll get to know the neighbors). Don’t you love the tree canopy?!
Here’s a view of our house from the street.
I don’t know what theses bushes are but they’re pretty and we have several of them in the yard.
