You know … one of those days when you’re thankful for living in a wonderful place and being able to spend your time doing something that you love that will provide warmth and comfort to others.
I’m completely on a night schedule right now so I slept a couple hours, fed and walked Finn at 7am, slept another few hours and was up by 12 noon. First up, a visit to the postal facility and then a 30 minute hike, followed by a late lunch by the lake. How could one NOT be grateful to live in such a beautiful place?
When I got home, I made up the guest bed with fresh sheets and did some laundry … Keith’s brother and sister-in-law are coming for a brief visit and will spend Friday night with us.
Then it was time to quilt – #5 of 12+ tops to be finished in the next few weeks is quilted. Another HeartStrings top from AnnG. After trimming this one, I loaded top #6 and it’s ready to quilt tomorrow.
The quilting on this one is freehand, a swirly version of Dwirling from the Pajama Quilter DVD. Dawn’s DVDs are no longer available but she gave me permission to share a brief description of how I quilt this pattern and you can see it at this post.
I made the binding and got it sewn on ready for hand stitching. Luckily Keith is coming home tomorrow afternoon because I’ve got 3 ready to hand stitch!
When I finished up downstairs, it was time to feed and walk Finn again and now we’re relaxing on the porch. I’ll get some knitting in this evening. I hope your day was as wonderful as mine!
