I didn’t sew over the weekend but after running my errands today I finished assembling the Hourglass top.

There was crochet and knitting, and hiking this weekend. I’m doing really well with getting a walk in daily and am trying to keep it up. Sunday, a 4 mile hike to the lower falls … it happens every year but I’m still amazed at how green it is here. I love all the trees!

Today, a shorter 20 minute walk after my errands before heading to the sewing room to finish up the hourglass top.


  1. The hourglass quilt is a beauty! I love all the colors. If I had trails like that I’d walk everyday, too. Enjoy.

  2. I envy you your lovely walks. We’re in a neighborhood with no sidewalks, and certainly no woodsy paths. I’ll just enjoy your outings vicariously!

  3. I love your hourglass quilt! Do you have a special trick to get all 8 of those pointy corners to meet so precisely and lay so flat? I tend to shy away from these beautiful blocks thinking I won’t be able to make them lie flat!

  4. The Hourglass top is lovely. And your hiking environment is stunning. It appears so tranquil.

  5. It’s wonderful that you can hike in such beautiful areas. I live in an asphalt jungle, there is a trail though and used mostly by bikers. I’d love to live somewhere I could walk to stores and restaurants. This quilt top is really nice, you are a great ‘pieces’.

  6. Your quilt looks great. Good job on those intersections. Your green path through the trees looks so peaceful. Keep up that hiking. so good for you. Love your pics as usual.
