It's been a wonderful couple of weeks.
The weather has been cooperative
and we took advantage once again to travel,
this time to the northermost coast of Cape Breton
to paddle this
as well as do a little sightseeing.
Plus, there has been plenty of yard work to do
and small home improvement projects,
altho' I have managed to get in a little sewing time.
I set up this small table topper as my 'to go project'
for our northern adventure
because the hexie quilt I've been working on
is getting too big to be a 'to go project' now.
This is only as much as I accomplished
due to the many distractions.
When my young friend in Houston announced
that she was adding a son to her family in October,
and was decorating his room with a nautical theme,
I began making his quilt
inspired by THIS post from Melissa
at Cornbread and Beans Quilting.
I just need to square it up and put on the binding.
And I finally finished Patty's 60th birthday quilt.
I'd appliqued these blocks while sitting with an elderly neighbor
of my daughter's three winters ago, so her husband could go bowling
a couple of days a week with his buds and take a well deserved break.
Only my second FMQ attempt, I was very pleased with the results,
although it isn't exactly perfect!
(This quilt is living proof that I eventually DO finish what I start.
Little Sister, who's been waiting 6 years for her
25th anniversary signature quilt,
will be glad to hear that!!)
That just leaves the label,
which is under construction.
It dawned a windy, wet, cool day today -
so there will be lots of quilty pleasure in my forecast!
Hope you have as much fun,
however you choose to spend your day!
